As we prepare for another long, hot summer, the Nation’s Favourite Coffee Shop1, Costa Coffee, has announced a new limited-edition summer menu.

The range features fresh new thirst-quenching drinks and delicious tasty sweet and savoury options, perfect for those lazy summer days. Menu offerings including refreshing Strawberry Cold Brew, hearty British Harissa Chicken & Grain Salad and sumptuous Raspberry & Blackcurrant Ripple Cake.

Iced & Cold Coffee Classics

This season, we’re celebrating the epitome of a British summer; strawberries and cream, with an innovative twist..

This seasonal tradition has inspired Costa Coffee to launch a Strawberry Cold Brew Coffee, the newest addition to its popular Cold Coffee Brews. This limited-edition flavour combines expertly crafted coffee with a sprinkle of strawberry-sweetness to finish. Brewed in store for 20 hours, this Cold Brew is beautifully refreshing and smooth, but with the delicate sweetness of strawberry to finish.

From cooling delights such as the Iced Flat White and Iced Latte, to something a little sweeter with the new Salted Caramel Iced Latte, it’s a coffee-lovers dream at Costa Coffee this season.

The new summer menu features all your hot coffee favourites, including the new Salted Caramel Latte, ensuring you can get your coffee fix come rain or shine. With milk and dairy alternative drinks such as semi-skimmed lactofree milk, coconut milk and almond milk, coffee lovers can enjoy their favourite drink just the way they like it.

Frostinos & Fruit Coolers

Back by popular demand is Costa Coffee’s famous Frostinos, an ice-based blended drink with layers of toppings which are a perfect summer treat.

Why not cool down with the Mint Choc Chip and Strawberry & Cream Frostino or try the Salted Caramel Crunch or Belgian Chocolate, which can be ordered with or without coffee. The new and improved recipe includes new toppings and cream as a standard pack that you can personalise to your preference.

Returning are the ever-popular fruit coolers in Mango & Passion Fruit, Red Summer Berries and Watermelon & Coconut – now with no added sugars or preservatives, for a refreshing pick-me-up. Using only natural fruit flavours for sweetness, these thirst-quenchers are a must-have this season.

Sweet & Savoury Treat

With its layers of Victoria sponge, creamy frosting and tangy raspberry & blackcurrant compote, the Raspberry & Blackcurrant Ripple Cake looks set to stay for the season. For those looking for a true taste of summer, look no further than the new Pink Swirl Meringue, based on a classic Eton Mess. Costa Coffee’s version combines a crisp meringue, topped with mixed berry compote and cream.

New products include the Mozzarella & Tomato Panini, Roast Chicken Salad Sandwich, and Pole & Line Tuna Nicoise Salad bowl. Whether you choose to pick up salad, panini, sandwich or even a bag of Sweet & Salty Popcorn, these new additions will be the perfect fix for those long days in the office or just grabbing a snack on the run.

From May 2019, Costa Coffee is expanding its lunchtime meal deal* in preparation for one of Britain’s favourite occasions - picnic season! Running every day from 11am-2pm, customers can pair their favourite savoury item such as a sandwich, panini or salad, with a snack and a drink for just £4.95.

Eric Tavoukdjian, Commercial Marketing Director atCostaCoffeesaid: “This season we have created a menu that combines fantastic new innovations, while not forgetting fan favourites including the Iced Latte and the Strawberry & Cream Frostino. Whatever the weather, we’re confident we have created the perfect mix of refreshment, indulgence and healthier options that makes Costa Coffee the ideal place to enjoy those long summer days.”
