How To Make An Irish Coffee With Your Nespresso Machine

Nationally celebrated on January 25th, the Irish Coffee is a very popular recipe for the avid coffee drinker. This article will feature how to make a warm glass of Irish coffee with your Nespresso Original Machine. If you are more into cold coffee, this recipe can also be altered to be enjoyed as a nice iced coffee. 

Irish Coffee was created in 1943 by Irish chef Joe Sheridan at an airport in Ireland to comfort passengers of a delayed flight. It became hugely popular and every one that traveled through that airport had one. It was then introduced to the US at the Buena Vista Hotel in San Francisco, CA. It is a perfect after dinner drink all year round, but it is especially popular the week of St. Patrick's Day - when we are all Irish!
