Nespresso has shared the most delicious recipe for a tropical flavoured iced coffee

Who else has been spending half their salary on iced lattes these past few weeks?



Summer, as far as I am concerned, is iced coffee time, and the only issue is picking them all up from my local coffee shop is putting a sizable dent in my weekly spending budget.

The good news? Nespresso has just solved all that with their new Barista Creations for Ice collection.

Different from their classic coffees, these pods have been expertly crafted for preparation over ice.


So say hello to your very own at-home coffee shop – you are about to impress friends and family – and save a fortune.

Even better? The Barista Creations for Ice has been given an exotic twist this summer, and trust me – it will take your summer iced coffees up a notch.

Nespresso Original

For the Original machines, Nespresso has launched Limited Edition Coconut Flavour over Ice. The coconut flavour balances beautifully with the roasted, caramelly notes of the Latin American Arabica base espresso.


As well as this, Nespresso has also brought back the Original iced coffee blends, Barista Creations Freddo Delicato and Freddo Intenso with the same great taste and all-new sleeve design for summer 2021.

Vertuo machines

Nespresso’s brand-new Limited Edition Tropical Coconut Flavour over Ice is for those looking to bring a tropical twist to their iced coffee. And let's face it, aren't we all?


Even better? The coconut flavour balances beautifully with the roasted, caramelly notes of the coffee blend’s Latin American and African Arabicas.

In addition, Nespresso is also relaunching its popular summer blends, Barista Creations Ice Leggero and Ice Forte.

Must-have at-home coffee accessories

To really make the most of your at-home iced coffee this summer, Nespresso has also added three new Monin syrups, in Vanilla, Tiki and Saffron flavours and trust me, they have transformed my morning coffee.


As well as the syrups, Nespresso has also brought back their popular ice cube tray that comes in a stackable format – so you have ice on hand for every iced coffee moment.
