Now that you can get your hands on the limited edition UMUTIMA wa Kivu and TANIM de Chiapas capsules, it’s time to have a little fun with it. Instead of having a regular shot of espresso (not that there’s anything wrong with that), we urge you to find your inner barista and try your hand at concocting one of these recipes courtesy of Nespresso. Good luck!
