New coffee creation especially for milky coffee lovers

Nespresso, the leader in portioned coffee, has released its new Barista Creations range – the result of six years of intensive studies. The expertly-crafted blends are set to be a game-changer for the three quarters of coffee drinkers globally who enjoy a white coffee.

Got milk?

Nespresso’s development team experimented with 18 coffee origins from around the world, focusing on the techniques of roasting and grinding, to perfect a milky coffee at home with the Nespresso milk machines. ‘Our team, comprising coffee roasters, sensory experts, professional baristas, food scientists and engineers, embarked on a journey of exploring coffee and milk interactions to create the finest coffee blend to be drunk with milk,’ adds Karsten Ranitzsch, head of Coffee at Nespresso.

Through sophisticated trials, around 20 000 cappuccinos were tested and over 120 coffee prototypes were produced. The result is the new permanent Nespresso Barista Creations range, designed to match every taste, whether you enjoy your coffee with full-fat dairy milk or prefer to use dairy-free options like oat and almond milk.

Coffee recipes

From a small cortado to larger cappuccinos, a variety of recipes can be created from each one:

–       Chiaro (meaning “light” in Italian) – inspired by Brooklyn baristas, Chiaro is for smooth and sweet coffee and milk recipes. With an ultra-light roast it has sweet caramel and biscuit notes when milk is added. Best for a sweet cappuccino.

–       Scuro (meaning “dark” in Italian) – inspired by baristas in Melbourne, Scuro is for the perfect balance between milk and roasted coffee notes. Its profile is intense, roasted and well balanced when milk is added. Best if you like an intense cappuccino.

–       Corto (meaning “short” in Italian) – inspired by Spanish baristas, Corto has a powerful taste and a syrupy texture for recipes with a little touch of milk. The blend is very dark, spicy, intensely roasted and smoky when drunk with milk. Ideal for a traditional Spanish Cortado.

The new permanent coffee range is the perfect pairing for the Nespresso milk machines, designed to bring out the textural experience of an indulgent milky coffee. The versatile Nespresso Creatista machines have adjustable settings for coffee volume, milk temperature and milk texture, allowing you to become a barista at home – even creating authentic, top-quality Latte Art coffees at the touch of a button.
