MILAN – Costa Coffee, is granting Christmas wishes with the launch of its spectacular limited-edition Christmas drinks range, featuring more festive surprises than ever before. For the first time in the brand’s history, Costa Coffee is taking three iconic festive chocolate favourites and transforming them into the most luxurious drinks range. From Tuesday 3rd November 2020, Costa Coffee fans will be able to enjoy their all-time favourite chocolatey treats reimagined as sumptuous hot drinks, taking centre stage at stores nationwide.
Customers who enjoy their drinks on the move will be able to get their hands on a special exclusive new addition at Costa Express machines too!
Say hello to the Quality Street Purple One® Latte, After Eight® Hot Chocolate and Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate.
Bringing together three iconic Christmas classics in a way that has never been done before at Costa Coffee, each limited-edition drink is lovingly handcrafted by expert baristas to spread some much-needed Christmas cheer as we enter the colder winter months ahead.
Missing your favourites? Anyone that screams ‘save me a purple one!’ the minute a tin of Quality Street is opened will be delighted to know that Costa Coffee is making your Christmas wish come true with the launch of the decadent the Quality Street Purple One® Latte in stores nationwide.
This festive twist on Costa Coffee’s classic handcrafted Latte has a rich caramel chocolate sauce and roasted hazelnut syrup, topped with a light dairy swirl and drizzled with a moreish caramel chocolate sauce inspired by the Quality Street Purple One ® chocolate. Each Latte comes with a ‘Purple One’ chocolate which will be a relief for anyone worried there won’t be any left in the tin.
Those partial to the unmistakable flavour of an After Eight thin will enjoy the heavenly After Eight® Hot Chocolate, Costa Coffee’s Signature Hot Chocolate with a festive splash of cool peppermint syrup, finished with a light creamy topping and dusting of chocolate powder. Alive with minty moreish-ness, every cup comes with an After Eight chocolate thin, which (for anyone wondering) can officially be enjoyed before or after 8pm!
If zing is more your thing, then why not try the new and deliciously zesty Terry’s Chocolate Orange Hot Chocolate. Following the phenomenal success of last year’s Terry’s Chocolate Orange Muffin, this new drink is a perfect blend of Costa Coffee’s Signature Hot Chocolate, flavoured with a specially created orange syrup, finished with a light dairy swirl and a festive glittery sprinkle. Going straight to the top of your Christmas list, each drink comes with a Terry’s Chocolate Orange segment for that final bite of orangey excitement. Fuelling up for some Christmas shopping? This chocolatey delight is exclusively available at Costa Express machines, at Shell locations nationwide and in stores.

More festive favourites to be tasted…
This year, to save you from tears, Costa Coffee is bringing it back with something even more special: the Irish Velvet Frostino.

Topped with Belgian Chocolate sauce, a swirl of lightly whipped cream and crunchy caramel pieces, this delightful drink can be enjoyed with or without a hit of coffee.
If a welcome chill is what you need, the Black Forest Chocolate Frostino is a mouth-watering combination of sweet cherry and velvety chocolate in a cool, creamy Frostino, perfectly finished with a light dairy swirl, shimmering red chocolate curls and cherry sauce drizzle.
Also back on the drinks menu this year is the Hot Spiced Apple, a flawless and fresh winter warmer perfect for warming you up on the colder nights, served with a slice of lemon for some added winter zest.
