You Can Get A Really Good Deal On A Nespresso Machine This Weekend

Nico Bolzico, Happy Ongpauco-Tiu and Bea Soriano-Dee show how you can make barista-level coffee in the comfort of home

After months of sheltering at home, the simplest things can be a thrill to experience again. For me, it’s drinking coffee made by a barista. Remember the sheer pleasure of that first sip, and how the strong bitter liquid feels as it goes down your throat? I was never really fully awake until my first cup in the morning. 

This new normal with its new routines and new conditions calls for a new strategy, too. One easy strategy is to learn to make barista-level coffee in the comfort of home. How? With the help of Nespresso


To help you level up your coffee-making skills, Nespresso launched the Be Your Own Barista campaign, which aims to inspire coffee lovers to easily create and indulge in cafe-quality coffees made using just a touch of a button. And it’s really easy to customize your coffee to your preference. See how Nico Bolzico, Bea Soriano-Dee and Happy Ongpauco-Tiu use their Nespressos to create a lovely coffee experience at home.

Nico Bolzico, Argentinean-born husband of Solenn Heusaff, has made a name for himself as a food entrepreneur, opening Bolzico Beef and Chingolo Deli. “My coffee history goes back to Argentina, but my nona was an immigrant from Italy. So my coffee of choice — the cappuccino,” he says. Mornings are lazy until he whips up a beautifully frothy cappuccino with velvety foam using his Nespresso Aeroccino which he’s named Rebecca, and his coffee pod of choice is the Nespresso Ispirazione Venezia, which produces a mellow, delicately aromatic coffee.

Sunnies Studios co-founder Bea Soriano-Dee loves milky coffee. With her Nespresso Latissimo Touch, she makes this drink: a Firenze coffee capsule has Latin American arabica which produces coffee with malty overtones, to which she adds oat milk and a sprinkling of Vietnamese cinnamon. The perfect drink for some quiet time in a busy day.

Happy Ongpauco-Tiu, private dining chef and entrepreneur, says coffee gives her a much-needed energy boost to get through her busy days. Plus, it’s one of her favorite pleasures. Her personal drink uses the Nespresso New Citiz. She combines a shot of Nespresso Vanilla Eclair with a shot of Nespresso Caramel Creme Brulee, which she finishes with sugar, a dusting of chocolate powder and whipped cream on top. Indulgent.
