Costa Living

In Coffee by James Anstee

Coca-Cola’s Costa Coffee Ready-to-Drink (RTD) was the first major product launch since Coca-Cola acquired Costa Coffee in early 2019. The range has three variants – Classic Latte, Caramel Latte and Black Americano. Great Britain was the first country to launch the chilled, canned coffee brewed with Costa Coffee beans (the same Mocha Italia Signature Blend coffee beans used in all Costa Coffee), designed for consumers looking for a genuine coffee hit, from a chilled coffee. Costa Coffee RTD contains 30% less sugar than most other ready-to-drink coffees in the UK, along with the equivalent of a double shot of espresso. As with all Costa Coffee, all the coffee beans are Rainforest Alliance Certified. The range will be sold in 250ml cans, which are 100% recyclable. Costa Coffee now has more than 2,600 coffee shops in the UK.  Costa Coffee was founded in London by Italian brothers Sergio and Bruno Costa in 1971.
