Nespresso’s Barista Creations For Ice range is helping Aussies create iced coffees at home during the warmer months for a limited time.

The range includes two new blends for Vertuo system – Ice Leggero and Ice Forte – and two for its Original system – Freddo Delicato and Freddo Intenso – all designed to be “experienced over ice”. 

Nespresso Oceania business executive officer Jean-Marc Dragoli said: “In creating the Barista Creations For Ice range, we have used our expertise to extend beyond the traditional coffee our customers enjoy every day, to offer them a cold, refreshing alternative just in time for summer. 

“By sourcing the highest quality coffee, each blend in the range has been crafted to reach its full potential when enjoyed over ice.”

The new iced range can be made in three steps, with an option for consumers to also add syrups to the drinks, as Nespresso partners with syrup brand Monin for a limited edition set of mini syrups, including Salted Caramel, White Peach and Blackcurrant.

The new range is now available online and at Nespresso boutiques until 14 February, while stocks last.
