MINNEAPOLIS, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Caribou Coffee Company, Inc., a brand committed to providing premium food and drink experiences, began serving two new beverages in its coffeehouses across the country this week. The delicious and fun limited-time-only additions to Caribou's menu – Biscotti Mocha and Cafe Milan Latte – were created to inspire Caribou fans to enjoy all life has to offer, fueled by unique coffee experiences.


Starting on Monday, March 4, Caribou began serving the rich Biscotti Mocha and Cafe Milan Latte drinks, made from the premium ingredients that the company has become known for. Caribou understands that coffee plays many different roles in its guests' lives and the company remains passionate about offering a range of unique and delightful beverages that are as diverse as its fans' experiences. These two new offerings are perfect for moments of indulgence just as the weather begins to turn warmer:

  • Biscotti Mocha: Fans who enjoy Caribou's real chocolate mochas will love this next-level mocha drink which features flavors of amaretto, vanilla and pistachio – all topped with crumbled biscotti.
  • Cafe Milan Latte: This delectable latte is flavored with honey and hazelnut syrup, and dusted on top with cinnamon.

"At Caribou, we've created these new offerings because we believe that coffee is more than a drink – it's a personal experience that fuels your life and makes meaningful moments," said Alfredo Martel, senior vice president of marketing and product management. "Whether you are jump-starting your morning, relaxing with friends, or warming up on a chilly day, we want to help you find the ideal drink for your mood, your occasion and your life." 

Fans could be discovering delicious new flavor combinations, or exploring the world with the people they love, whatever the adventure, Caribou believes that beverages like the new Biscotti Mocha and Cafe Milan Latte are the perfect complement to embracing life's simple moments.

Additionally, to remind its fans that "Life is more than coffee, that's why there's coffee," Caribou created its first TV spot since 2010 which fans will see throughout the company's largest Minnesota markets in the coming weeks. To check out the TV spot now, please visit Caribou's YouTube channel or Facebook page. Fans can also see an image of Caribou's new 3D billboard in downtown Minneapolis on the Facebook page, which was created to celebrate these exciting new launches.
