Coffee champions Nespresso are making summer even sweeter with their latest Barista Creations range that’s made to be iced, iced baby. It couldn’t come any sooner as the Aussie summer stings, but you can now perk yourself up at home with the Brazilian-inspired collection designed to elevate iced coffee experiences with surprising tropical coffee blends designed specifically for ice.

In the Barista Creations for Ice range is the new Liminha over Ice flavour, return of fan favourite Coconut over Ice and for black coffee loves, Ice Leggero. If a latte isn’t enough for you in the heat, try these summery treats to get that caffeine fix without the temperature spike.
