Debuting in the US in April 2020, Pepsi's newest innovation blends cola and coffee to give consumers an unexpected caffeine kick
Pepsi is brewing something up for 2020 that intends to awaken taste buds of cola lovers and coffee fanatics across the US. Pepsi announced Pepsi Café, a beverage debuting in the US in April 2020, that blends the taste of deep flavorful coffee with the refreshing, crisp taste of a Pepsi cola. Featuring two flavors, Original and Vanilla, Pepsi Café is balanced with just the right touch of roasted Arabica coffee to add a combination of flavors to your caffeine routine. Pepsi Café has nearly double the amount of caffeine than a regular Pepsi cola and is available in 12-ounce slim cans for an easy pick-me-up, whether at work, at home or on-the-go.
Pepsi Café is not the brand's first time launching in the cola and coffee space. Pepsi was one of the first beverage brands to enter the category in 1996 with the launch of Pepsi Kona, a product which was ahead of its time. Fast forward to today, with the growing consumer demand and desirability for ready-to-drink iced coffee products, and consumers' appetites for new and blended category options, Pepsi is ready to unveil Pepsi Café. Pepsi Café Original is the perfect pick-me-up for those who enjoy their regular cup of joe, but also love the sweeter caramel undertones of a Pepsi cola. Pepsi designed its Pepsi Café Vanilla to be a sweeter and creamier beverage, providing consumers with a new and refreshing twist on the indulgent vanilla flavor they consistently crave.
