The much-loved Gingerbread Cream Latte makes a triumphant return, giving the Costa Coffee classic latte a generous dash of gingerbread syrup with cream topping featuring an adorable mini gingerbread man. A perfect pairing for wintery walks and long overdue catch-ups with friends.
Hot chocolate lovers need to look no further than the iconic Black Forest Hot Chocolate & Cream, a beautifully rich creamy chocolate complete with mouth-watering cherry sauce drizzle and shimmery chocolate curls, sure to win the affection of any chocolate fan. This classic fan favourite almost vanished forever, but a national outcry and petition from fans in 2016 sealed its return place at the top.
Looking for a twist on your trusted cappuccino? Then step right up and try the Cinnamon Spiced Cappuccino. With its trio of blended spices, cinnamon, nutmeg and star anise, this winter-warmer will leave you feeling warm from the inside out. What’s more, this festive feeling drink can be made Vegan by switching to a milk alternative, including Coconut, Almond or Oat milk.
You asked and we delivered
Last but certainly not least, Costa Coffee is excited to announce the return of the show stopping duo that is the Irish Velvet Cream Latte and Irish Velvet Cream Hot Chocolate. With their indulgent and comforting (yet non-alcoholic) flavourings of Irish Cream, this duo was hugely popular with the UK public when they debuted last year.
Eric Tavoukdjian, Commercial Marketing Director at Costa Coffee said: “We know how much our customers love our seasonal drinks and the flavour combinations we offer at this time each year. With the festive season almost upon us, we are delighted to be able to offer a taste of familiarity through a collection of handcrafted drinks that we know our customers have been missing.”
Available in stores and drive-thrus nationwide from Thursday 1st October 2020, Costa Coffee’s Returning Favourites range can be viewed online at the website.
