Coffee lovers, I have news for you.. Nespresso is bringing you the finest quality coffee with smooth milk that is a flavour harmony to your home with three new limited edition coffees, two of which have been especially created to be prepared with milk.


So, if you are like me who prefers a milky Cappuccino or if you like a full-bodied Espresso Macchiato or an extra intense Ristretto, there is a BARISTA limited edition coffee to satisfy your senses and allow you to bring the coffee bar straight to your kitchen. How amazing is that…

Yours truly was over at the APW in Bangsar where they turned the event area into a lovely air conditioned coffee bar for the weekend..

Inspired by a barista’s craftsmanship to perfectly harmonise the complex flavours in coffee and mastering milk preparation, Nespresso undertook multiple sensory tests to define the exact levels of roasting and the ideal coffee grinding techniques to create the BARISTA limited editions.

Geoffrey Dalziel, Business Development Manager at Nespresso Malaysia explained, “From the many discussions with our Nespresso Club Members we have understood that a great coffee in black does not necessarily become an equally great coffee in white with milk. We used our understanding and knowledge about coffee and paired it with the understanding that our club members who love coffee with milk are looking for ideal bitterness, acidity, body, flavours and aromas in their cup. We are proud to have created three different Limited Edition coffees, which are specifically developed for those who like their Nespresso white, such as an Espresso Macchiato.”

The BARISTA limited edition coffee  was the collaboration with Malaysia’s Best Barista, Jason Loo 3-time Champion of Malaysia Barista Championship. To further highlight the coffee culture in Malaysia, Jason together with Nespresso worked hand in hand to come up recipes incorporating Nespresso Barista Limited Edition coffee.

Jason was also there to make us three different delicious coffee recipes…

The BARISTA limited edition coffees are set to delight any coffee lover with three tempting options:

  • Try BARISTA Chiaro for a Cappuccino

Tasting notes: The coffee has been specially crafted by the Nespresso experts to prepare a sweet, indulgent Cappuccino with a smooth creamy taste, roundness and exceptionally delicate biscuit notes.

Intensity: A medium-to-dark roasted blend of Intensity 5 when black, that becomes exceptionally smooth and round when combined with milk.

Best enjoyed: 25ml coffee topped with 60ml milk froth.

  • Sample BARISTA Scuro for an Espresso Macchiato

Tasting notes: Carefully created for an intense, flavourful and full-bodied coffee finished with a gentle touch of milk foam.

Intensity: A medium-to-dark roasted blend of Intensity 8 when black, that keeps its strong character when combined with milk.

Best enjoyed: 40ml Espresso with two spoons of milk foam to retain the strong coffee character.

  • Taste BARISTA Corto as a black Ristretto

Tasting notes: The BARISTA Corto blend has been masterfully blended to give the coffee an extra intense taste with a thick syrupy texture and a dark marbled crema.

Intensity: A dark-roasted blend with intensity 11.

Best enjoyed: As a 25ml black Ristretto.

Whatever your coffee preference is, the BARISTA collection ensures you have the perfect flavour harmonies, without even having to leave your home…


On that note, yours truly was even given a chance to be a barista and prepare a coffee drink… and I made a cup of cham with gula melaka and an orange peel on top… It did not manage to win the judges heart though, because I like my coffee lighter, milky and sweet..
