On January 24, the Nespresso on Ice Truck will be hitting the streets of Joburg and Cape Town to serve up a sip of something special this summer. Following the launch of two Limited Edition coffees that have been specially crafted for iced coffee preparation, the Nespresso on Ice truck will be cooling down the city’s hot spots by delivering delicious iced coffee. What better way to enjoy a moment of perfect refreshment in the height of summer?
Intenso on Ice and Leggero on Ice are the first coffees Nespresso has crafted specifically to be enjoyed as iced coffees. Intenso on Ice is a bold coffee with cereal and cocoa notes and an intense, roasted finish. If prepared as an Intenso on Ice Macchiato, it reveals a smooth and creamy texture with biscuit notes. In contrast, when enjoyed as a black iced coffee, Leggero on Ice offers delicate fruity and lemon notes with lingering aromatics and a full-bodied, smooth texture. If paired with milk to create a Leggero on Ice Macchiato, it develops toasted notes and a more milky and sweet flavour.
While the Nespresso on Ice truck is the coolest place to be, it couldn’t be easier to have your Nespresso moment on ice in the comfort of your own home. The Nespresso coffee experts have created a simple, three-step recipe for a perfectly proportioned and delicious iced coffee, with water or milk to create the perfect iced coffee treat. Follow the easy three-step method:
STEP 1 Add 3 extra-large ice cubes to a glass (90g or 7 regular sized ice cubes)
STEP 2 Top with an Espresso serving (40 ml) of Intenso on Ice or Leggero on Ice
STEP 3 Finish with 90 ml of cold water or cold milk froth (approx. 6 tablespoons) Voila!
