Nespresso has collaborated with culinary genius Giapo to create a bespoke gelato Shakerato, available this weekend only – Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 February – at Giapo’s Gore Street store. Coffee-loving customers will receive a complimentary Nespresso iced coffee with every purchase of the Shakerato gelato.
Providing Aucklanders a delicious respite to the Kiwi heatwave, the limited edition creation is in celebration of the launch of Nespresso’s new iced coffee range that features two Italian-inspired coffees, Ispirazione Shakerato and Ispirazione Salentina.
Designed exclusively for Nespresso by Italian chef Giapo, the Shakerato gelato is crafted with the new Nespresso Over Ice Ispirazione Shakerato coffee and Christchurch hazelnut milk.
What’s more, with every purchase of the Shakerato gelato, customers can choose from one of two complimentary ice coffee creations, also crafted by Giapo;
The cocoa aromas and long-lasting roasted notes of this intense and full-bodied Nespresso Over Ice coffee combines perfectly with hazelnut butter and dulche de leche for a creamy and sweet serve.
The addition of maple syrup and liquorice complement the smooth and round texture of this Nespresso Over Ice coffee, revealing nutty aromas and a sweet but slightly bitter taste.
Giapo’s head chef and patron, Giapo Grazioli, comments, “The Italian inspiration behind the Nespresso Over Ice range made this a natural collaboration for the Giapo team.We’re looking forward to getting foodies and coffee lovers excited about the Nespresso Shakerato gelato this weekend.”
Over the years, the innovative team at Giapo have served us outlandish goods such as a Colossal Squid ice cream, Roti wraps and wearable ice cream. If that’s anything to go by, the iced coffee serves are sure to excite.
Be sure to get in before Giapo closes its doors on Sunday!
The Nespresso Shakerato gelato is priced at $10.50 and available to purchase from Giapo on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th February only. Opening hours: 12.30pm – 10.30pm.
The first 150 customers to purchase the Nespresso gelato (cone, tub, Selfie cone or Wearable ice-cream cones) each day will receive one complimentary Nespresso Over Ice coffee; either Ispirazione Shakerato or Ispirazione Salentina.
