Out of nowhere, a pair of super-shiny cans tumbled into the Oatly lineup. What’s going on? Should we start styling the hair of little dogs and sell our own jewelry now too or what? Well, not yet. This super-new* product, Cold Brew Latte a.k.a. cold brewed coffee with oat drink, requires a startling color on its package, something that will alert thirsty coffee lovers to its amazing contents. Wait, is silver a color? Maybe it’s more of a material. But it’s the color we’re talking about here, not the material. Anywho. It’s in a gulp-friendly on-the-go package and the brew is made from 100% fair-trade arabica coffee beans and has about the same amount of caffeine as a large (or grande if you really must) cup of black coffee. And the rest you can read to the right.
High caffeine content, 2.5% added sugar, rich in unsaturated fat and yes, 100% cool for our vegan friends. If you like the idea of a latte in a shiny container but you're more in the mood for a matcha latte instead, here's what you're looking for. What a coincidence!
What might be less amazing
If you like the idea of a latte in a shiny, tall can but not the cold brew or the matcha kind, we're sorry to say we have no more latte on-the-go oat drinks available at the moment. But you could always brew your own coffee and pour in a splash of warm Barista Edition and you’d basically have a café au lait. Then just pour it into a thermos to make it on-the-go. Just a little tip.
