Pairing the finest quality coffee with smooth milk is a flavour harmony that has long transfixed professional baristas. Now, Nespresso is bringing this sensation to the home with three new Limited Edition coffees, two of which have been especially created to be prepared with milk.
Whether you indulge in a creamy Cappuccino, a full-bodied Espresso Macchiato or an extra intense Ristretto, there is a BARISTA Limited Edition coffee to satisfy your senses and allow you to bring the coffee bar straight to your kitchen.
Inspired by a barista’s craftsmanship to perfectly harmonise the complex flavours in coffee and mastering milk preparation, Nespresso undertook multiple sensory tests to define the exact levels of roasting and the ideal coffee grinding techniques to create the BARISTA Limited Editions.
Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee at Nespresso explained, “From the many discussions with our consumers we have understood that a great coffee in black does not necessarily become an equally great coffee in white. Like the best baristas in the world, we have used our understanding and knowledge about coffee and paired it with the understanding that our consumers who love coffee with milk are looking for ideal bitterness, acidity, body, flavours and aromas in their cup. We are proud to have created three different Limited Edition coffees, which are specifically developed for those who like their Nespresso white, such as an Espresso Macchiato.”
The BARISTA Limited Edition coffees are set to delight any coffee lover with three tempting options:
