The Nespresso on Ice truck will hit the streets of Johannesburg to serve up a sip of cool this summer. The brand recently launched two limited edition coffees which have been specially crafted for iced coffee preparation.

The truck will cool down popular hotspots by delivering iced coffee at various activation points. Among the first coffees to be crafted and enjoyed as iced coffees are Intenso on Ice and Leggero on Ice.

“Intenso on Ice is a bold coffee with cereal and cocoa notes and an intense, roasted finish,” said brand manager at Nespresso, Lila Jutzen. “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.”

Nespresso coffee connoisseurs 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 these three easy steps to create iced coffee:

  • Step 1: Add three extra-large ice cubes to a glass (90g or seven 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 90ml of cold water or cold milk froth (about six tablespoons).
