Nespresso Professional has announced the launch of three new coffee blends – Bianco Delicato, Bianco Intenso and Ice Intenso.
With research revealing that 74% of coffee drinkers regularly choose recipes with milk, Bianco Delicato and Bianco Intenso will enable HORECA and office businesses to create barista style quality milk recipes now with coffees that work in harmony with milk at a touch of a button – from an intense flat white to a smooth cappuccino or latte. Ice Intenso has been designed work over ice to appeal to coffee lovers who enjoy a refreshing iced coffee with an intense taste profile.
The Nespresso development team spent several years studying the interaction between coffee and milk in order to create Bianco Delicato and Bianco Intenso. “We experimented with 18 coffee origins, focusing on the techniques of roasting and grinding to perfect blends which would reveal their best flavours with milk. These same techniques were used to discover blends that are high quality when served chilled,” explained Karsten Ranitzsch, Head of Coffee at Nespresso.
Ice Intenso mixes Peruvian and Indonesian Arabicas and is ground in such a way as to deliver its best experience over ice, both with and without milk. This allows consumers to easily make and enjoy a refreshing iced coffee out of home.
“We work closely with our out-of-home partners, whether that’s restaurants, offices or hotels, to understand the evolving preferences of their customers and employees. People increasingly expect variety and we are committed to supporting B2B customers in delivering exceptional experiences that meet these demands. We understand that coffee preferences are constantly evolving and we believe these new blends provide HORECA and office businesses a choice of innovative, high quality products to offer their customers and employees,” said Beth Langley, OOH director for Nespresso UK & ROI.
These three new coffees are part of the new permanent Creations product category within the Nespresso Professional range. Alongside these three new coffees, the new Creations category will also feature Nespresso’s popular flavoured blends (Espresso Caramel and Espresso Vanilla).
