We’re big fans of coconut water and coffee, so when we heard about Coco Cafe’s newest product that combines the two, we were eager to give it a shot.
Coco Cafe’s Coconut Water Cafe Latte (available online and at 200 stores nationwide, including select Whole Foods Markets) is a mix of all-natural and fair trade organic espresso, coconut water and 2 percent milk. Together, these ingredients give you a refreshing boost, which we think both coconut water and coffee lovers will enjoy.
Here’s what our editors had to say about the drink:
“I admit, I was skeptical about the combination of coconut water and coffee at first, but this drink tasted just like an iced latte but without all the extra sugar. It got me through my afternoon of errands.” — Marianne Magno, associate web editor
“This little guy tasted just like an iced frappuccino without all the calories and guilt that I usually feel along with them. It pepped me up during my usual 3 p.m. slump without making me feel sluggish later from a sugar crash, like I usually do with coffee or anything else that is caffeinated.” — Colleen Moody, web editor
“I love coconut water and coffee. It’s a great match. It has a rich taste, but not too heavy, which I like.” — Cheri Crump-O’Donoghue, sittings editor
