September 04, 2018 // Franchising.com // London - The Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop*, Costa Coffee, is launching an exciting new September menu to ease into the autumnal months. In stores from Thursday 6 September, the range features delicious new seasonal drinks and tasty sweet and savoury menu options.
Bonfire Spiced Range | A brand-new flavour profile
Bonfire Night is a highlight of the autumnal calendar, so what better way to start the countdown than with the new Bonfire Spiced Range. Featuring three drinks, the flavour profile of rich caramel toffee and toasted spices are complemented by cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and ginger, which provide a taste sensation.
The Bonfire Spiced Latte combines the rich, smoky flavours of toffee and spices with steamed milk, and Costa Coffee’s espresso topped with a sprinkle of caramel and a light dusting of cinnamon. Made using Costa Coffee’s signature Mocha Italia blend, the coffee accentuates the deep flavours brilliantly.
The Bonfire Spiced Hot Chocolate is a deliciously indulgent combination of the seasonal flavours and chocolate making for the ultimate autumn pick-me-up. The Bonfire Spiced Cold Brew is a take on the single origin Colombian Cold Brew. Expertly blended with the Bonfire syrup and spices, and topped with a generous helping of Whipped Milk, a velvety soft milk foam.
