Drink your coffee the Cuban way!

Nespresso Cubania_London2014-433

A-LISTED recently attended the launch of Cubania, a limited edition coffee by Nespresso. The evening was a thoroughly Cuban affair where we were immersed into the love affair of coffee, Cuban style!

Inspired by the warmth of the Cuban way of life and its iconic coffee ritual, Nespresso coffee experts have stretched their mastery of the art of coffee creation to produce Cubanía – a taste of Latin passion.

Coffee is a way of life for Cubans and their extensive global diaspora: a social moment of the day when coffee supersedes conversation and pleasure rules. With Cubanía, Nespresso invites coffee lovers on a sensory journey igniting not only fresh tastes and aroma sensations, but visiting new realms of coffee culture and history.

The way of drinking coffee in Cuba – Cubano-style – is a leisurely ritual that mixes a portion of coffee with cane sugar until it reaches a thick, creamy paste, then combines it with yet more coffee. For many, Cuba represents a different pace of life, and its idiosyncratic coffee ritual is representative of this sensual Latin style: a life in which there is time to socialize, to enjoy one another’s company.

With the Limited Edition Cubanía, Nespresso has broken its own coffee intensity record! Here are some creative ways to unleash the barrista in you, enjoy this lovely new blend.
