The Perfect Iced Coffee at Home
Nespresso launches two limited edition Iced Coffee Flavours
We haven't had much of a sunny summer here, but with the humidity iced coffee at home still sounds like a plan to me.
And so, Nespresso has released two varieties in limited edition packs: Intenso On Ice and Leggero On Ice. The Mediterranean-inspired packaging and colours certainly make me think of chilling with a cold iced-coffee on holiday (it's reminiscent of vintage railway posters too).
The Iced Coffee Discovery Assortment comes with: 2 sleeves of Intenso on Ice, 2 sleeves of Leggero on Ice, 2 sleeves of Arpeggio, 2 sleeves of Volluto, 1 sleeve of Vanilio and 1 sleeve of Caramelito.
The two new flavours specially formulated for drinking over ice are: Intenso On Ice, described as a rich coffee blend with lingering roasted aromas and cereal notes, and Leggero On Ice, which is a milder coffee blend with fruity, well-balanced aromas and subtle lemony notes.
We tried both coffee Macchiato-style. The Intenso was, of course, more intense with a punchier coffee flavour and more bitterness! I would probably add some vanilla syrup to sweeten it up for me but Mr Foodie loved it. I didn't feel that the Leggero needed anything added to it as the flavours were sweet enough for me. Also in the pack are Vanilio and Caramelito, which if you haven't already guessed are vanilla and caramel flavoured.
How to make a perfect Nespresso on Ice macchiato.
Add 3 large ice cubes to a tall glass (Nespresso Pure glasses can be purchased here).
Add 40ml of Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice.
Top with 90ml of cooled milk froth.
Need more of a caffeine kick? Use two capsules of Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice using the 25ml setting.
I'd highly recommend giving both of these new Nespresso On Ice coffees a try. I'm planning on stocking up on these very special Limited Editions, especially my favourite - the Leggero On Ice. The Intenso assortment with 50 capsules is available for £17.30 from the Nespresso website, while the mild assortment is £17.90. The complete discovery pack is £35.40. For each of these packs the cost of an individual capsule works out at about 35p.
