Holiday Coffee Moment with Hamilton Beach® FlexBrew Coffee Maker...Featuring Spiced Eggnog Latte #giveaway #coffeemoments #flexbrew #latte #eggnog

Living in a two-person household, I honestly don't need a full-size coffee maker. I prefer to use a single-serve coffee machine so Michael and I can brew whatever coffee variety we're in the mood for each time! That said, I want the flexibility to use single-serve coffee cups...or my favorite gourmet ground coffee. That's precisely why I LOVE using my Hamilton Beach® FlexBrew™ coffee maker. Its tagline, "Single-serve coffee, brewed your way" is definitelyspot on! This unit can brew popular K-Cup* packs OR your favorite ground coffee...providing the flexibility to successfully facilitate all your coffee moments. Here are some of my favorite key features of the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew™ coffee maker:

Brew an 8-oz. or 10-oz. cup of coffee using any Keurig®* K-Cup pack -- or up to a 14 oz. travel mug using ground coffee. Both a K-Cup pack holder and a coffee grounds basket are included.

The 40 oz. water reservoir can be filled in the sink and allows multiple brews without having to refill. When the water level in the reservoir gets low, a blue water drop flashes on the unit, signaling it is time to refill.

Whether it’s a single-serve K-Cup pack or your favorite fresh ground coffee, just place them in the holder, lower the lid, and press Brew. The FlexBrew™ coffee maker automatically shuts off when brewing is complete.

Choose from 8 oz. or 10 oz. single-serve K-Cup packs, or up to 14 oz. using ground coffee. Use the included adjustable cup rest to fit your favorite mug in just right.

The pack-piercing needle on the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew™ removes for easy cleaning -- which prevents frustrating clogging that can sometimes occur with frequent use.

Whatever your personal seasonal "coffee moment" is, FlexBrew™ ensures it's exactly what you want! The holidays are hectic, so I find that it's important to take time to slow down and savor the holiday moments. That's exactly what Michael and I did one evening last week. We enjoyed the holiday décor in our home, watched a holiday movie on television...and enjoyed mugs of comforting Spiced Eggnog Latte. It's a snap to make thanks to the Hamilton Beach FlexBrew™ -- a perfect little treat for two!
Spiced Eggnog Latte
a Weekend Gourmet Original
Ingredients (makes two 12-ounce beverages:
  • 8 ounces brewed coffee from a K-Cup pod [NOTE: I used a seasonal Cinnamon Sugar Cookie flavor]
  • 1 cup prepared eggnog
  • 1 cup sweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla bean paste [NOTE: can substitute vanilla extract]
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg
  • Whipped cream for topping
  • Optional: Additional sugar or sweetener, to taste
Step 1: Add the eggnog, almond milk, and vanilla bean paste/vanilla extract to a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk to combine and heat until hot -- do not boil! When the mixture is heated, add the cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk again and lower heat to low to keep mixture warm while you brew the coffee.
Step 2: Open the front lid of the Hamilton Beach® FlexBrew™. Add the K-Cup pod of your choice -- I opted for a seasonal Cinnamon Sugar Cookie flavor to enhance the eggnog flavor of my latte. Close the lid firmly and select the 8-ounce cup size and Regular Brew options. Brew the coffee into a measuring cup with a spout.
Step 3: Add the brewed coffee to the warm eggnog mixture in the saucepan. Whisk to completely combine all of the ingredients. Pour the latte into two coffee mugs. Just before serving, top with whipped cream and sprinkle with additional nutmeg.
This Spiced Eggnog Latte is a perfect combination of smooth, earthy coffee and sweet, creamy eggnog. The two flavors combine nicely together -- and the addition of whipped cream and more nutmeg on top makes this latte a special treat! This recipe makes two servings, but it's easily doubled or tripled if you're serving a crowd. Prefer your latte on the sweeter side? No problem! Simply change the ratio to 1.5 cups eggnog and 1/2 cup sweetened vanilla almond milk! Sweetener or sugar can also be added to ensure each person has their desired sweetness level.
