Two new limited-edition coffees from Nespresso enrich the Ispirazione Italiana range, celebrating Italian master roasting through the ages.
Over the years coffee roasting styles have evolved. Indeed, despite Italy’s long coffee history, the speciality coffee scene in the country is flourishing. Nespresso has captured the tastes and aromas of both the traditional and modern with Ispirazione Novecento and Ispirazione Millennio, each of them a true masterpiece of Italian roasting history.
New limited edition Ispirazione Novecento has been inspired by the classic Italian espressos of the 1940s. It is a smoky dark cup that paints a picture of the country’s early stand-up coffee bars, in an era when roasting was slower and often wood-fired, and blends were dictated by the beans available in wartime Europe. Anchored in Brazil, Ispirazione Novecento is embellished with heirloom Arabicas and West African Robustas to give an intense espresso with raw spicy, nutty brown flavours and a dense, dark crema.
The limited edition Ispirazione Millennio, meanwhile, takes its aromatic cues from the new trends of artisanal roasting sweeping the country, alongside growing preferences for brighter, fruitier flavours. To achieve this fresh, modern taste, lighter and shorter roasted Brazilian and Colombian Arabicas have been blended with beans from the Indian subcontinent. The result is a well-rounded and pleasantly intense coffee with spicy notes, fine acidity and a hint of fruit
Art comes in many roasts
“Nespresso’s Ispirazione Italiana is more than a range of Italian-inspired coffee, it’s a skilfully crafted masterpiece, balancing varied aromas, tastes and geographical influences,” says Yassir Max Corpataux, Nespresso Coffee Ambassador for the Middle East and Africa.
The permanent range of seven coffee capsules offers a broad variety of espressos and ristrettos, each capturing the roasting essence of an Italian city or region, from the spicy North African influences in Palermo to the rich depth of history of Rome. The range is available in Original with certain coffees also lending themselves to being prepared as longer coffees with milk.
Inspiration for the budding coffee artist
To accompany this launch, Nespresso is introducing its popular small Nomad travel mug in a blooming rose colour, as well as releasing new recipe inspirations to elevate your coffee moments. Limited editions Ispirazione Novecento and Ispirazione Millennio will be available online and at Nespresso boutiques from September 3. ✤
