Costa: Taste the Festivities in Every Sip

Nothing says Christmas like a flavour-packed hot drink, enjoyed with a sweet treat (or two). And nowhere does hot drinks quite as well as Costa – where baristas turn everyday ingredients into an art form.

And this year we think Costa has outdone itself when it comes to the sheer array of festive goodness on offer – all of which can be enjoyed across their 12 outlets, north and south.

For starters, Costa’s famous Gingerbread Lattes are back on the menu, reminding us why this coffee house classic is a favourite year after year. Trust us: it’s the perfect mix of spicy and sweet, with a creamy texture that’s as comforting as it is delicious. Next, we’re pleased to announce that another Costa gem is back on the menu for Christmas 2018 – the luxurious White Hot Chocolate returns for a season of choc-tastic scrumptiousness. Don’t you love it when old friends come home for the holidays?

But if you’re the kind of person who likes to try something new every time you pop into Costa, then you’re in luck too. Among the delicious drinks introduced this festive season are the Chocolate Hazelnut Praline Latte (which we think tastes a bit like our favourite chocolate spread in gorgeous drink form) and the looks-too-good-to-drink Doughnut Latte that, yes, includes a doughnut to sink your teeth into.

And sticking with the theme of ‘drinks that think they are desserts’, we can’t help but fall head over heels for the to-die-for Caramel Cookie Hot Chocolate, and the yummy Thick Hot Chocolate and Thick Hot Caramel dessert drinks – that are literally so concentrated, you have to consume them with a spoon.

Yes, the Costa team has certainly gone all-out this year, with an unparalleled selection of sweetness that we can’t wait to try when it launches on 12 November. Plus, we’re excited to enjoy all of the other great Costa features – from their cosy couches and comfy seating, to their pretty festive decorations and Christmas cups that will ensure even the grouchiest grouch gets into the spirit.

So… don’t wait five more minutes to start your Christmas countdown. Mark the 12 th of November on your calendar, and then head straight to the Costa of your choice to take your pick of festive goodness in a drinkable form. Meanwhile, head over to or find Costa on social media for their very latest news and tastiest seasonal updates.
