If you've ever wished that your seltzer was actually coffee, you aren't alone. In fact, there was such a market for the idea that S.Pellegrino went ahead with the product of (some) people's dreams—coffee-flavored sparkling water. No, we're not kidding.
For the first time in S.Pellegrino's 120-year history, the brand has strayed from fruity flavors in lieu of something a little richer. All of these caffeinated beverages are part of the Essenza line, which is composed of three unique flavors: Exotic Vanilla & Coffee, Delicious Cocoa & Coffee, and Smooth Caramel & Coffee.
"Building on the popularity of our S.Pellegrino Essenza, featuring fresh Mediterranean fruit flavors, we turned to Italian coffee bars as inspiration for this new line," said Sara Mayer, the brand's Senior Marketing Manager. "With sophisticated and indulgent hints of vanilla, cocoa and caramel, and a gentle dose of caffeine, this new offering is the perfect accompaniment to perk up your daily breaks and snack times."
These carbonated drinks won't pack as much of a punch as real coffee. They only contain 30 milligrams of caffeine, which is about one-third the amount in a regular cup of coffee. Either way, if you're just looking to lower your overall caffeine intake, or you want to mix up your mornings, S.Pellegrino has you covered.
