Costa Coffee is moving into the ready-to-drink market, by offering some of its delicious coffee selections in a can.
The new range will feature three of the brand’s most popular flavours – Classic Latte, Caramel Latte and Black Americano.
Each can will be 250ml, will be 100% recyclable and will launch in the UK later this month.
The new product is the first release since Coca-Cola took over the coffee chain.
“Our teams at Coca-Cola and Costa Coffee have been working around the clock to make our shared vision of Costa Coffee ready-to-drink coffee a reality,” says Jennifer Mann, senior vice president and president of Global Ventures for Coca-Cola
“This demonstrates the power of our partnership. It combines the marketing expertise, global scale and distribution credentials of the Coca-Cola system with Costa Coffee’s expertise and capabilities in coffee.”
The chilled canned coffee promises 30% less sugar than most other ready-to-drink coffees in the UK, with between 95 and 120 calories and 4.3g and 9.8g of sugar per can. Each drink also contains the equivalent of a double shot of espresso.
In contrast, Starbucks’s Coffee 200ml Double Shot Espresso contains 142 calories and 17g of sugar per can.
Dominic Paul, CEO of Costa Coffee, says: “Through this collaboration we’ve been able to work together to offer consumers the great taste of Costa Coffee in a can for the first time.
“We’re really proud to have brought this product to market at such speed whilst still ensuring the range has proper coffee at its heart.”
