Coffee Machine Tips and Tricks:

– The Basic: Pull out hot chocolate before water starts

– The Caffeine Hit: Can’t stand straight black coffee? Get the perfect milk:coffee ratio by adding – the Latte Macchiato milk to your preferred volume of black coffee

– The Early Morning: Get the cappuccino, pull out before the watery bit and then put it back for the espresso shot. Then get put another espresso shot.

– The Creamy Comfort: ¾ Hot Chocolate ¼ Latte Macchiato milk

– Buy real milk. You’ll thank us later.

(For a real hack you can steal someone’s chai tea latte powder – usually in the drawers or cupboards nearby.)
