The day after the soda announcement, Coca-Cola announced the news of another mixed drink that would combine the “authentic” taste of coke with coffee,media reported. Unlike topo Chico, which will be available in a limited number of cities this year, Coca-Cola says it plans to launch the new coffee drink across the U.S. from January.
Coca-Cola North America announced the blend, and the company said it would be available on coffee shelves across the U.S. from January 2021. The drink is understood to be a blend of coffee made from Brazilian beans, “the familiar, authentic taste of Coca-Cola” and one of three different flavors: vanilla, caramel and black coffee.
If this sounds like an unusual mixture, perhaps it would be wise to keep your judgment. Jaideep Kibe, Coca-Cola’s vice president for North America, said the blend was one of the company’s most tested innovations in recent years.
Before its launch in January, Coca-Cola had said it would offer the coffee to members of the Insiders Club. The blend was first tested in Japan before expanding to other markets such as Turkey, Australia, Brazil, Vietnam and Italy.
