QUIZ: Which Nespresso Iced Coffee Recipe should you try?

Summer has always been synonymous with fun, adventure, and positive vibes. To celebrate this, Nespresso wants you to embrace positivity and ‘feel good’ moments with its Barista Creations for Ice coffee range and carefully crafted coffee recipes as part of the brand’s summer campaign.

Drawing inspiration from Brazil’s positive vibes, the campaign encourages coffee lovers to hit the reset button and adopt new habits that will lead them toward their goals. To do this, Nespresso has curated a series of wellness practices dubbed the “Summer Rituals”, aimed at providing positive inspiration and guidance. The four actionable practices are designed to promote better routines and lifestyles, namely:

  • Sip & Shine (setting ourselves up for the day)
  • Sip & Breathe (connecting with ourselves)
  • Sip & Escape (connecting with nature)
  • Sip & Bloom (connecting with others and friends)

Whether it’s a regular morning espresso to complement your yoga practice, or a refreshing iced coffee to sip on whilst you journal, coffee is the grounding element that helps to sustain these uplifting rituals. And to help you put these rituals into practice, here’s a step-by-step guide to getting the perfect ice-cold sip (of positivity) to beat the heat.


Step 1: Prepare your Nespresso coffee machine

First things first, you’ll need a trusty companion to enable you to craft your preferred cup of coffee. Nespresso has a variety of coffee machines to allow you to be your own barista at home and try different recipes at the press of a button.
