Inspired by a relaxed Mediterranean lifestyle, these two innovative coffees are the first to have been specially crafted by Nespresso Coffee Experts to be prepared with ice for a refreshing summer drink at home.
No sweet, flavored syrups or lashings of cream – this is purely about the highest quality coffee served simply with ice and milk. And with this year’s summer tipped to be warmer than average, a refreshing iced coffee will be the perfect pick-me-up on a hot afternoon.
“This summer is already shaping up to be a beauty, and many Kiwi coffee lovers will be in search of a cool alternative to their usual hot coffee. We have introduced these two Limited Edition coffees so you can enjoy the high-quality Nespresso you know and love when the weather calls for something cool and refreshing,” comments John Ciaglia, Nespresso New Zealand Country Manager.
Intenso on Ice is a bold coffee with cereal and cocoa notes and an intense, roasted finish. When prepared with milk, the coffee reveals a creamy texture with biscuit notes. Leggero on Ice offers delicate fruity and lemon notes and a full-bodied, smooth texture that develops toasted notes and a more milky and sweet flavor when paired with milk. Both can be enjoyed with or without milk.
To prepare the perfect Iced Coffee, Nespresso Coffee Experts have created a simple, three-step recipe:
- STEP 1 Add 3 large ice cubes (or 7 regular sized ice cubes) to a glass
- STEP 2 Top with an espresso serving (40ml) of Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice
- STEP 3 Finish with 90ml of cold water or cold milk (or if you’re feeling fancy, you can top with cold milk foam from your Aeroccino3 milk frothing device – just hold down the button until it lights up blue)
Intense coffee fans can amend the recipe to two ristretto servings (2 x capsules extracted 25ml each) using either Limited Edition for a more intense flavor.
To celebrate the launch of the Limited Edition coffees, Nespresso is also offering a Limited Edition Nespresso on Ice Travel Mug, which is available in a matte white finish with a contemporary blue geometric pattern to match the coffee capsules. The Touch Travel Mug is the must-have accessory for afternoon refreshments by the pool or on the beach.
For the launch of Nespresso’s “ON ICE” limited editions, Nespresso has created some summer gadgets to accompany the coffee capsules. Nespresso-shaped ice-cube forms and a Touch Travel Mug are now also available online and at Nespresso boutiques.
