1. Coconut Vanilla Latte
Beach weather may be a little far away, but you can recreate paradise in the comfort of your own home with this tropical twist on a classic latte. 


  • 1 serving of coffee
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Sugar to taste

Prepare a cup of coffee using the Mr. Coffee® Café Barista, and fill the milk reservoir with coconut milk. Stir in the vanilla extract and sweeten it up even more with some sugar. Then sit back, relax and envision a tropical paradise while you sip on your coconut vanilla latte.

2. Cherry Almond Latte
If you prefer a nutty taste for your morning java, try this tasty cherry almond latte that's as yummy as it is unexpected!


  • 1 serving of coffee
  • 1 handful cherries, pitted and mashed
  • 1 cup almond milk

Start by brewing a cup of your favorite coffee and filling the milk reservoir of the Mr. Coffee® Café Barista with almond milk. Drop some mashed cherries into your mug before placing under the spout. Much like the muddled mint leaves in a mojito, the mashed cherries will give just a hint of flavor to your coffee, rather than act as a syrup that you mix in. Stir together and enjoy.

3. Apple Cinnamon Latte
There's no flavor more comforting than apple cinnamon. Add it to your latte for an especially cozy break in your day.


  • 1 serving of coffee
  • 1 splash apple cider
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Fill the milk reservoir of the Mr. Coffee® Café Barista with milk and prepare a cup of coffee. After brewing, add in a splash of apple cider and sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the froth. For best results, warm the cider before adding it to your latte so it doesn't bring down the temperature of your brew. Sip slowly and enjoy the soothing taste of apple cinnamon.
