The Nescafe Red Mug Machine: #StartCreating Coffee Mixes at Home

November 4, 2015
nescafe red mug machine review philippines

Barista used to be a title I write under my name. I love coffee and I love making them. I can make perfect cappuccino (with strong foam) and smooth lattes. But that is when I have the right equipment. When I left my job in a coffee shop, I always wish I could create a good coffee at home. Unfortunately, coffee maker and French Press can only produce a good brew, and it is too expensive to buy coffee machines made in Italy. 

But everything would change starting today. I can start creating.. because…
I got my own Nescafe Red Mug Machine!

I can’t wait to #startcreating with it at home!

Nescafe Red Mug machine lets you create a wide range of delicious and pretty cups of coffee. Think of foamy Cappuccino, layered Latte, fancy Mocha, velvety Americano and other delicious coffee creations using Nescafe Classic and Nestle Coffee-Mate!  It is developed in Switzerland by Nestle coffee machine experts. We got to play and create with it during the launch earlier held in Blue Leaf Pavilion. 

I instantly fell in love with it! I love that it is small and compact – perfect for condo-dwellers and those with small spaces. The glossy red color is just stylishly sleek.
Let’s dissect what’s inside this Red Mug machine first – it has a coffee chamber with a unique cyclone that brings out Nescafe Classic coffee aroma and flavor. There’s a foaming jet technology that creates foam with ease (if you are a Barista, you know foaming is one of the things that you need to learn first!). The technology is inspired by the barista steam jets in coffee shops.

Tessa Prieto Valdes hosted the event and she showed us how easy it is to create a Christmas Cinnamon Coffee in just two minutes – or I think less!

“Anyone who knows me knows that I am a creative spirit. I love putting my own span on things to make anything and everything I do uniquely me! I decided to theme my creation with Nescafe Red Mug Machine around my favorite time of the year”

We were also joined by Nescafe Brand AmbassadorsRaymond Gutierrez, Bianca King and Denise Richards. We all know how busy these celebrities are, and how much they need caffeine in their life. They make the best brand ambassadors to speak of how efficient the new Nescafe Red Mug Machine is!
To make the launch a little more exciting, they grouped media guests and bloggers to join the celebrities concoct their own coffee drink. I was with Team B (Bianca King). But I also checked out the other team’s creations.

I love the smell of coffee in the morning. The smell alone is enough to perk me up. Having a cup in the morning is like getting a warm, fuzzy hug from my fiance Sol. – Denise Richards.

Denise enjoyed creating her A Hug in A Mug Latte – cookie butter with Nescafe Classic and Nestle Coffee Mate.

Richard created Vanilla Chilled Coffee

I usually don’t have much time for myself since my work keeps me constantly on the go. So my coffee moment first thing in the morning is really just enjoying a nice, iced glass of my own creation.

Bianca taught us how to create her Double Chocolate Mocha coffee. 

“As with most of my culinary creations, this is something that I have tweaked to achieve the best possible drink. I love to be able to create gourmet cup of coffee at home anytime I want”- Bianca King. 

Creating My Own Coffee Mix with Nescafe Red Mug Machine

I tried my hands at creating the same drink with a twist (I skipped the sugar and added more chocolate powder) and I knew I am a natural barista!

1. I just added Nescafe Classic coffee in the chamber
2. Mix the powder in the glass cup. 
3. Turn the know and let it do the wonders by froathing and pouring coffee.

I guess I would need to put my French Press back on the shelf and save a space in the kitchen for this new Nescafe Red Mug machine.
What I love about Nescafe Red Mug Machine?

  • It is sleek and compact – perfect for people living in condo or apartment.
  • It only uses Nescafe Classic and Nescafe Coffee Mate to create a good cappucino. No need for fancy, expensive capsules.
  • It can be placed in the buffet table during events.
  • It is sleek and stylish – swaying away from the usual black (but, I love black :))
  • It is easy to clean and maintain, 
  • It uses 1,200 watts per hour – but you only need 2 minutes to create a good coffee. It is like using a microwave oven.
