I am a big fan of iced coffee drinks, especially in the summer heat. We were sent a generous selection of Emmi Caffè Latte drinks to try. Having seen them on the supermarket shelves (chilled, usually by the milk), I was keen to see how these tasted.
The drinks come in individual 230ml cups. This was a good portion size, just enough to feel satisfied. You remove the plastic lid and peel off the foil, then replace the lid. Then you can sip the drink through a hole in the lid. This made it really suitable for drinking on the go, or outside. In really hot weather it was nice to add a couple of ice cubes to make the drink even colder.
Emmi Caffe Latte comes in four varieties.
Caffè Latte Cappuccino: A really chocolaty treat. This one made a nice cooling afternoon treat.
Caffè Latte Skinny: At just 90 calories, this was my favourite drink of them all. Not sweet, with a nice rounded coffee flavour.
Caffè Latte Strong Macchiato: This was great for a morning drink. The extra strong coffee was ideal with breakfast, to get the day started.
Caffè Latte Vanilla: This was the sweetest drink of them all, and really tasted like a treat. The vanilla flavour was strong but didn’t overpower the drink.
The coffee flavour was nice and rounded, and came through nicely in all the drinks. We each had our favourites, depending on whether we enjoyed a sweeter drink or not, but all agreed we would be happy to have any of them again.
We will definitely purchase these drinks, either as a grab and go drink when out, and to keep a couple of the Strong Macchiato versions in the fridge for a morning pick me up!
