Barista Creations

A new approach to milky coffee from the experts at Nespresso

As three quarters of coffee drinkers globally enjoy a white coffee, Nespresso launches its latest blends, expertly crafted specifically to go with milk.

The company has spent six years studying the interaction between coffee and milk to develop the Barista Creations milk coffee range for which the development team experimented with 18 coffee origins from around the world, focusing on the techniques of roasting and grinding, to perfect a milky coffee at home with the Nespresso milk machines. 

Behind the blend 
“The journey to find the perfectly balanced coffee with milk was inspired by professional baristas’ craftsmanship, and by questioning our consumers’ expectations and motivation to drink coffee with milk,” said Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee at Nespresso. “Our Coffee Experts therefore started by consulting consumers. Only after gaining a thorough understanding of it while taking the diversity of the responses into account, did we start to develop our new blends.”  

From 18 different coffee origins, around 20,000 cappuccinos were tested and over 120 coffee prototypes were produced. Through sophisticated trials, the experts pushed the boundaries of roasting and grinding in order to find the key attributes for a coffee blend to be drunk with milk. 
Barista Creations: the new permanent coffee range
Those looking for bitterness, acidity, body, bold flavour and aromas in their cup of coffee with milk can find it all in this new range. To match every taste, each creation has been developed for its unique alchemy with milk. From a small cortado to larger cappuccinos, a variety of recipes can be created from each one. 
They can also be paired with plant-based milk alternatives, such as oat or soya milks. 

Original coffee range of Barista Creations
• Chiaro (meaning ‘light’ in Italian) – inspired by Brooklyn baristas, Chiaro is for smooth and sweet coffee and milk recipes. With an ultra-light roast, it has sweet caramel and biscuit notes when milk is added. 
• Scuro (meaning ‘dark’ in Italian) – inspired by baristas in Melbourne, Scuro is for the perfect balance between milk and roasted coffee notes. Its profile is intense, roasted, and well balanced when milk is added. 
• Corto (meaning ‘short’ in Italian) – inspired by Spanish baristas, Corto has a powerful taste and a syrupy texture for recipes with a little touch of milk. The blend is very dark, spicy, intense roasted and smoky when drunk with milk. Ideal for a traditional Spanish cortado. 

Nespresso milk machines for all your milk coffee recipes
The new permanent coffee range presents the perfect pairing for the Nespresso milk machines designed to bring out the textural experience of an indulgent milky coffee. 

The Nespresso Latissima machines offer the convenience of enjoying many excellent coffee and milk recipes at home at the simple touch of a button. With Nespresso’s coffee expertise and the venturi system of the machine, white coffee drinkers can get the right milk foam for their favourite cups.  

Any coffee lover can become a barista at home thanks to the Nespresso Creatista machines with which it becomes easy to create authentic top-quality Latte Art coffees thanks to Breville’s innovative, automatic and expert steam pipe. These versatile machines have adjustable settings for coffee volume, milk temperature and milk texture.
