Nespresso is making the coffee moment twice as nice with the introduction of two new coffees to the Vertuo range, Double Espresso Chiaro and Double Espresso Scuro. While both blends are rich in taste, Double Espresso Chiaro embodies an intense, yet balanced character and Double Espresso Scuro has a dark and bold character. To celebrate the launch of the two new permanent Double Espresso blends, Nespresso is collaborating with New York’s gourmet ice cream parlor, Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, to bring coffee lovers a delicious double experience – a double scoop of double espresso ice cream – combining the finest of coffees with the finest of ice creams. The limited edition Nespresso Double Espresso ice cream flavor featuring Nespresso’s new Double Espresso Scuro blend will be exclusively available at the shop from Monday, May 14 through Sunday, May 20.
“At Nespresso, we are constantly striving to bring new coffee moments to consumers through unique and elevated experiences,” said Davide Moro, Vice President of Marketing at Nespresso USA. “We are excited to partner with Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream, a brand that is also dedicated to providing high-quality and innovative offerings to their clientele, to celebrate our new Double Espresso blend through a delicious, double espresso ice cream.”
Nespresso is collaborating with ice cream connoisseur, Nicholas Morgenstern, who focuses on serving texture-driven small-batch ice creams and, similar to Nespresso, prioritizes the highest quality ingredients and unique flavor profiles. Morgenstern hand-developed this singular flavor, Nespresso Double Espresso, which has a bold, indulgent taste with a citrus twist and a smooth and creamy texture that reflects the Double Espresso Scuro coffee lovers can sip and savor in their cup. The collaboration offers coffee and ice cream enthusiasts a distinctive and delicious coffee and ice cream experience with a double scoop of double espresso ice cream.
“We’re always looking for partners that bring us back to our core values, which are high-quality and flavor, and Nespresso does just that,” said Nicholas Morgenstern, Owner and Founder of Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream. “We focus on premium American-style ice cream and can be as creative or as simple with our recipes as we want. We’re excited about this particular collaboration because Nespresso’s Double Espresso is bold and rich and the quality of the espresso really comes through in the flavor.”
Starting Monday, May 14, 2018 at 7 PM through Sunday, May 20, 2018, Nespresso fans will find the limited edition ice cream flavor available at Morgenstern’s Finest Ice Cream at 2 Rivington Street in New York City.

NESPRESSO DOUBLE ESPRESSOS
The Vertuo Double Espresso blends offer a new, larger cup size to the Vertuo range. Double Espresso Chiaro and Double Espresso Scuro are rich with character and taste and are the perfect base to espresso and milk recipes.
Vertuo Double Espresso Chiaro – The Double Espresso Chiaro blend combines Central and South American Arabica beans for an intense yet balanced espresso.
Intensity Level: 6
Vertuo Double Espresso Scuro – The strong personality of Double Espresso Scuro arises thanks to the presence of Central American Robusta beans, which add intensity, in combination with Arabica beans, which balance the full body by bringing cocoa notes to the blend.
Intensity Level: 8
