Tyla Exclusive: Costa Has Launched Coca-Cola Flavoured Coffee And We Need To Try It

Tyla Exclusive: Costa Has Launched Coca-Cola Flavoured Coffee And We Need To Try It

We've seen a lot of food and drink hybrids in our time, but Coca Cola and coffee?! We *never* saw that coming...

Yep, coffee giant Costa has teamed up with the King of fizzy drinks Coca Cola for a brand new hybrid drink - and we have honestly never been so keen to try anything in our lives.

Of course, you wouldn't typically go to pour a can of Coke into your latte, but thinking about it, we get why it works.

Sweet, fizzy coke and mellow, bitter coffee? We can get down with that.

The Coca Cola Flavour Coffee range, which launched in Costa stores across China in May 2020, is part of the coffee chain's summer menu, and includes a Coca Cola flavour Latte and a Coca Cola Cappuccino.

But that's not all. From July, there will be a Cold Brew version joining the duo, too.

When describing the new Coca Cola Flavour Cold Brew a Costa Coffee Spokesperson said: "The familiar crisp taste of the classic Coca Cola complements the smooth mellow coffee flavours found in our Cold Brew coffee.

"When served over ice, this is a truly refreshing summer drink".

This sounds epic.

While news of the Costa and Coca Cola collab isn't widely known here in the UK yet, the coffee chain shared the new venture on Linkedin when it launched.

And while pretty much everyone wanted to try it, they weren't all 100 per cent convinced it would be their thing...

"Not sure about this one Costa! Match made in heaven or a step too far? Would love to try it," wrote one person in the comments.

As another penned: "Not sure how I feel about this, but will definitely have to give it a try when it reaches the UK!"

Some were more enthusiastic, though. A third wrote: "That sounds crazy, I'm in".

It might be surprising for the two drinks giants to collab, but it actually makes a lot of sense.

Coca Cola acquired Costa Coffee in 2018 for £3.9 billion, so the two companies have a vested interest in the venture.

The sad news is that the Coca Cola Coffee range is only in China at the moment, and there are no plans to bring it to the UK as of yet.

In the meantime, we might just have to try knocking up a Coca Cola latte for ourselves!
