Nico Bolzico shows off his coffee making skills with Nespresso Barista Creations
Nico Bolzico recently previewed his coffee-making skills on Instagram, playing barista with the new Nespresso Barista Creations. While he was his usual funny self with his comedic side comments every now and then; his barista skills looked absolutely dead serious. He brewed his own steaming cup in a matter of minutes using the Nespresso machine and the new flavors from the Barista Creations line.
“It was the first time I made a cappuccino in my life,” shares Nico after whipping up different barista-style blends. Watch him make the perfect cup of coffee here.
“Solenn is very impressed─with Nespresso, not with me,” he jokes. “Now, making my own cup is faster, more convenient一perfect for busy days, which I just never seem to run out of.”
With the Nespresso machine, Nico created his own recipe called “The Bolziccino.” The blend consists of a mix of milk, maple syrup, and Nespresso Corto, one of the new flavors from the Nespresso Barista Creations.
The celebrity barista showed off his coffee making skills in real life last September 8 at the Power Plant Mall in Makati. In addition to Nico’s signature Bolziccino, guests also got a taste of the three Barista Creations flavors: Chiaro, Scuro, and Corto.
The Barista Creations range enables coffee lovers to go beyond black coffee and be their own barista. It caters to different taste profiles一from those who like their cup on the sweeter side to those who want their brew strong. With its three flavors, you’ll be able to craft just the right blend to satisfy your discerning palate.
The Chiaro, inspired by Brooklyn baristas, was created for smooth and sweet coffee and milk recipes. When milk is added to create a mild cappuccino, it unlocks sweet notes of caramel and biscuit.
If you’re looking for the perfect balance between coffee and milk, try Scuro, which is inspired by baristas in Melbourne. With milk, its profile remains intense and roasted, but balanced, creating a delicious strong cappuccino.
Inspired by Spanish baristas, Corto packs a powerful taste and a syrupy texture. With a very dark, spicy, intense roasted, and smoky flavor profile, it’s ideal for the traditional Spanish cortado. Nico used this blend in his Bolziccino.
