Costa Coffee announces new limited-edition March menu for Spring
March 12, 2020 // Franchising.com // Costa Coffee, the Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop1 for the tenth consecutive year, is stepping into spring with the launch of its new limited-edition March menu. The line-up includes a flurry of exciting newcomers alongside much-loved returning favourites, all landing in stores nationwide from Thursday 5th March 2020.
Welcome back to the Flat Family
This season sees the return of the extended Flat Family! As the first major UK branded chain to roll out the iconic Flat White across its stores nationwide in 2010, Costa Coffee is delighted to celebrate ten years of its iconic, signature coffee, with even more variations on offer… Hold on to your hat – the Flat Black is back!
Designed for the coffee purists, the Costa Coffee Flat Family now features the velvety smooth Flat White, Oat Flat White, Coconut Flat White and the returning Flat Black, a more intense black coffee. Using the purest coffee extraction method to capture three short espresso shots – just the first 10ml (Cortissimo). The fan favourite Flat Black brings out the sweet kernel of the coffee bean to make that morning brew extra special. Coffee lovers can also upgrade to a rich and bright Colombian Character Roast for an extra 25p to add subtle fruits, sweet caramel and a smooth honey taste.
With more alternative options…NEW Oat dairy alternative
March sees an exciting new addition to Costa Coffee’s alternative milk offering, with Alpro Oat2. The latest dairy alternative adds a hint of creaminess and rich, honeyed taste of oats to any hand-crafted coffee or hot chocolate on the menu. Customers now have a choice of whole, semi-skimmed, skimmed milk or Alpro Soya free of charge. Alternative2 options are available for an extra 45p, including; Arla Lactofree milk, Alpro Almond, Alpro Coconut and Alpro Oat.
Introducing… The Chocolate & Caramel muffin made with Rolo©
Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Rolo©? Well, now you can with the NEW Costa Coffee Chocolate & Caramel muffin made with Rolo©. This oh-so Insta-worthy and decadent chocolate muffin is filled with an indulgent caramel sauce, topped with sticky caramel icing and finished with three mini Rolo©s for the ultimate sweet treat. Almost too good to share, it is set to be one of the most sought-after items on the menu this season.
Say hello to a delicious Hot Chocolate Trio
Here to satisfy all chocolate lovers, Costa Coffee’s new Hot Chocolate Trio will see Costa Coffee’s signature Hot Chocolate, fan-favourite White Hot Chocolate and trend-setting Ruby Cocoa Hot Chocolate feature on menus nationwide.
The newest addition to the team, the Ruby Cocoa Hot Chocolate has been setting Instagram feeds alight this year. Made using a rare ruby cocoa bean, which gives the drink its fabulous pink hue, fans have been swooning over this iconic hot chocolate.
Sweet treats for a sweet season
Set to make those catch-ups over coffee even richer, the NEW Salted Caramel Brownie makes its debut on menus nationwide, with the delicious combination of dark chocolate, salted caramel and milk chocolate chunks. Looking for something with a fruity twist? The limited-edition Belgian Bun is a soft, chewy dough bun containing a lemon filling and juicy sultanas and is perfectly finished with white icing and topped with a cherry.
On the run and looking for something quick and easy to grab, the ever-popular snack brand PROPER Chips and PROPER Popcorn are now available for those too busy to take a break.
