‘Frappé’ means iced or chilled in Italian so a ‘frappé cappuccino’ means an iced cappuccino. Originating out of hotter climates, the frappe is popular all over the globe and a well-known staple of coffee houses, proving just how very delicious it is.
Sweeter and colder than other coffee-based options, the frappé cappuccino is a good option for a leisurely afternoon or a wonderful treat if you’re spending the weekend lounging around.
Use a pestle and mortar or a high-speed blender to crush the ice first (you’ll need about a cup’s worth) and place it in the mug.
Choose from a range of different flavored capsules from the Nescafe Dolce Gusto range. You can make cold-brewed coffee with this particular machine, which will make your frappé truly authentic.
The power button gets the whole process going and you won’t need to waste time pre-heating the machine. Fill up the water reservoir which holds up to 50 ounces of water and is easily removed. You’ll need two shots of espresso as this is a longer drink – this is easily done on the control panel.
Place your mug filled with ground ice underneath and hey presto – your frappé is ready in seconds. You can add either ½ cup of sugar syrup to the cup or brown, granulated sugar will also do the trick.
Finish off your frappé by adding whipped cream. You can even sprinkle cinnamon or powdered chocolate on top for a really indulgent treat!
