Who doesn’t LOVE a great new coffee drink?  You have to check out the recipe below, from Nespresso!!

Nespresso Cappuccino a la Rose – For Two

A real declaration of love, Dulsão do Brasil falls for the rose, its sweet honey and maple syrup notes blending with the sugary lightness of the flower. A smooth coffee full of promise.

  • 2 capsules of Dulsao do Brasil
  • 2 pieces of white chocolate
  • 7 oz. of milk
  • 1 oz. of rose-water
  • Crystallized rose petals


  • Heat your Cappuccino cups
  • Add a piece of white chocolate in each cup
  • Prepare the capsules of Dulsão do Brasil as an espresso and pour in each cup
  • Combine the milk and the rose-water
  • Prepare the flavored milk using the steam nozzle of your Nespresso machine or the Aeroccino milk frother
  • Pour the frothed milk into the cups and decorate with crystallized rose petals

You can also find additional recipes on our Nespresso Ultimate Coffee Creations site.

This is the perfect machine to create this beauty! We have one ourselves, for over a year now, and my husband swears by it. Wonderful, true cup of espresso. The Aeroccino Plus is also great, making perfect steamed milk, literally, in seconds!
