FT - Product news - Costa seasonal flavours

Costa Express is welcoming back two much-loved seasonal flavours to its 9,000-plus machines. Toffee Spiced Latte and Toffee Spiced Hot Chocolate have returned as they came top in a poll of Costa Coffee customers about which drink range they wanted back.

Meanwhile, Costa Coffee shops are currently serving a new limited-edition Latte+ drinks range. Timed to coincide with Veganuary, the range includes three drinks that are not only vegan friendly but also include added sources of either vitamin B12 and zinc or protein.

The three drinks are:

• The Caramel Oat Latte+, which is made using an oat dairy alternative, together with a rich caramel syrup and added sources of vitamin B12 and zinc.

• The Vanilla Coconut Latte+ has vanilla syrup combined with a coconut dairy alternative plus B12 and zinc.

• The Hazelnut Almond Latte+ blends the light creaminess of an almond dairy alternative with an indulgent roasted hazelnut syrup with an added portion of protein.

In addition, Costa Coffee is currently giving customers their choice of dairy alternatives for free. This means those wanting to customise their drink with plant-based alternatives such as coconut, oat, almond or soya, can do so without any extra charge.
