Inspired by the rich world of the holiday season, this limited-edition coffee delights with a wide range of spice notes such as cloves, cinnamon and cardamom. Combined with a sweet pumpkin flavour, this creates a smooth Arabica blend from Latin American and African coffees for an indulgent treat. With the addition of a dash of milk, the spice notes are softened for a sweeter and smoother coffee with buttery biscuit notes.

Chocolate Fudge - NEW

Available in Vertuo

Extraction: Mug 230ml

Notes: Smooth, rich and chocolatey

RRP: $1.40 per capsule

For your intense chocolate pleasure! A rich and deliciously elegant dark chocolate fudge flavour runs through this blend of Latin American and African coffees. Brazilian coffee gives the blend roundness and balance, whilst Ethiopian coffee in the second split brings delicate aromatics and finesse. Into that smooth blend comes the chocolate fudge flavour. Try Chocolate Fudge with a dash of milk for a real chocolate-flavoured treat, delivering notes of cereal and subtle caramel sweetness.

Hazelino Muffin - NEW

Available in Vertuo

Extraction: Mug 230ml

Notes: Sweet and velvety

RRP: $1.40 per capsule

A smooth and sweet flavoured coffee. Starting with a base blend of Latin American and African Arabicas, these coffees get a medium dark split roast that develops the roundness and rich texture of this espresso, allowing the soft biscuit notes to glow in the cup. Try Hazelino Muffin with a dash of milk to bring out its rich biscuit and pastry character even more.

Indulgent coffee recipes to start the holiday season right:

“October marks the start of the holiday season for many coffee-lovers around the world, with pumpkin flavours typically celebrated around Halloween,” shares Jaime. “Pumpkin Spice is a flavour that’s synonymous with celebrations this time of year, and almost feels like a welcome to the start of a season of indulgence.

“We’re celebrating two of the new additions to the Barista Creations Flavoured range with our elevated coffee recipes, along with existing Vertuo fan favourite Vanilla Custard Pie. All our recipes have been tested with alternative milks, with New Zealand’s much-loved oat milk coming out as our top recommendation across each of the three recipes below.”
