Caribou Iced Coffee in an Aluminum Bottle

I don’t know about you, but I’m often frustrated by the lack of caffeinated beverage choices available to me at my local convenience store . . . not.

Enter Caribou, who’s rolling out an iced beverage in an aluminum bottle in partnership with Coke:

Coke teams with Caribou on iced coffee drink

Caribou Iced Coffee will be available in regular, espresso, and vanilla and will be packaged in 12-ounce aluminum bottles. It will be priced similar to other refrigerated coffee drinks, or between $1.79 to $1.99 each.

I’ll give it this: It sounds unique, which isn’t exactly easy in the beverage game. It’s a different angle than the Starbuck’s Double Shot and the aluminum bottle sounds like a creative alternative to the Frappucino (which I call a Frappu-crapo).

What will Dunn Bros’ bottled (or canned) coffee drink angle look like? You know it’s coming. Any speculation?

  1. Yum. That sounds far better than all those horrible energy drinks, if still a bit pricey. (Somehow, almost $2.00 for a to-go cup that you watches a barista fill seems less like a ripoff than a can you pull out of the cooler.) If Dunn Bros. is really thinking about this kind of product, they just have to exploit the quality angle – better ingredients (estate coffees?) and better flavors. Selling a 16oz can for the price of others’ 12oz’ers would be good, too.

  2. Just tried both the espresso and regular versions. They’re both good if you enjoy coffee. A bit sugary for me but something needs to cover up the bitterness of coffee that was brewed a month ago.

    The espresso is much stronger in coffee flavor, with a darker taste. They only have 5 ingredients which is impressive in our over-processed world.
