Nespresso Barista Creations for
Milky Coffee Lovers
New In Zurich
Whenever I order a cappuccino in Zurich and it’s the afternoon, or even worse the evening, I notice a wry smile across the face of the waiter or waitress….Yes, I know, you’re not supposed to order cappuccinos after 11am in Italy – and I think sometimes Zurich follows similar rules – or maybe there are a lot of Italian baristas and waiters in Zurich?
In any case, I love milk in my coffee – and whether I fancy a cappuccino, a flat white or a latte, I really must have a milky coffee! I know, a lot of people love theirs black – but as the French say “chaqun à son goût”, or each to his own. Luckily, however, I have a Nespresso Vertuo machine (see photo below) at home which makes great “big” coffees, which are ideal with milk.
If you also love milky coffees and are a Nespresso user, you’re in for some more good news! After writing about the Vertuo Line of Nespresso machines which enable you to make a great long coffee, ideal for “big” coffee lovers, Nespresso have now introduced their very special Barista Creations, for the perfect milky coffee.
This new range of coffees has been specially designed to go with milk. They’ve been inspired by the world’s top baristas, so that we can all make our perfect milky coffees anytime of day (or night 😉 ) in the comfort of our own home!
Apparently a lot of science was involved in getting the right coffee beans which interact with milk for the optimum result – so it’s good to know that the Barista Creations blends are especially designed created with milk in mind. So now, with a bit of help from Nespresso we should all be able to create barista-style coffee recipes to enjoy ourselves and impress our friends!
I have been testing out the Barista Creations Double Espresso Chiaro which has been inspired by baristas in Brooklyn no less. The selected Arabica beans are a blend from Kenya and Indonesia and lightly roasted to a mild blend that interacts with milk, for a natural, sweet caramel finish.
The other one I tried was the Barista Creations Double Espresso Scuro which takes its inspiration from Baristas in Melbourne, Australia. It uses selected Arabicas from Colombia and Ethiopia which are separately roasted to create a coffee with toasted notes which marry perfectly with milk.
Both make wonderful milky coffee creations, to be enjoyed at any hour, anywhere you please – even watching the sun go down by the lake!
So whether you prefer cappuccinos, latte macchiatos, café lattes or flat whites – you can create a fabulous range of your own milky coffee creations in your own home with the Nespresso Barista Creations and the Vertuo Coffee machines and accessories (see some examples below). And of course, most importantly nobody can tell you it’s the wrong time for cappuccino! 🙂
So whatever you do, enjoy your milky coffees and don’t let anyone tell you it’s too late when it’s after 11am!
