Nespresso is bringing this sensation to the home with three new coffees, two of which have been specially 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.
“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,” says Karsten Ranitzsch of Nespresso.
“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.”
Try Barista Chiaro for a Cappuccino. It has the tasting notes of a sweet, indulgent Cappuccino with a smooth creamy taste, roundness and exceptionally delicate biscuit notes. Its intensity is medium-to-dark roasted blend.
Barusta Scuro for an Espresso Macchiato is carefully created for an intense, flavourful and full-bodied coffee finished with a gentle touch of milk foam.
Taste Barista Corto as a black Ristretto, the dark-roasted blend with great intensity, has been masterfully blended to give the coffee an extra intense taste with a thick syrupy texture and a dark marbled cream.
The Barista coffees are sold for Bt240 per 10 capsules.
