We chatted with Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi about her favorite fall product, and the award-winning author couldn't stop raving about Nespresso's newest coffee maker, the U. (“It's easy to use, which is really important if you're like me," she says.)

Here's Padma's favorite way to enjoy her Cup of Joe–it's both simple and indulgent:


• 1 capsule of Indriya of India
• ½ cup milk of your choice
• ½ tsp of brown sugar in the raw
• ¼ tsp of powdered green cardamom
• Pinch of crushed raw unsalted almonds
• Grind of nutmeg


1. Pour the Indriya of India Grand Cru into a cappuccino cup
2. Mix the milk of your choice with the brown sugar in the raw and powdered green cardamom and froth the milk using the Aeroccino milk frother
3. Fill the cappuccino cup with the prepared frothed milk over the Espresso
4. Top with the crushed raw unsalted almonds, a grind of nutmeg and a pinch of cardamom

How do you like your morning cup of coffee?
