The Nespresso on Ice Truck has been rolling on the streets of Jo'burg and Cape Town this summer and now you can create the ice coffee it served in your own home.
Nespresso launched two Limited Edition coffees that were specially crafted for iced coffee preparation and the ice truck cooled down the city’s hot spots by delivering the new creations.
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.
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!
