It’s called Coca-Cola Coffee Plus, and it has fifty per cent more caffeine and fifty per cent fewer calories.

According to Shin-Shouhin (via Get News), Coca-Cola Coffee Plus is a vending machine exclusive in Japan.

Each 190ml can has 34mg of caffeine and only 42 calories. The coffee comes in the form of extract powder.

This kind of thing isn’t a first for Coca-Cola, which previously released Coca-Cola BlāK in Europe and the United States.

Shin-Shouhin says the drink doesn’t smell like coke, nor does it smell like coffee. The aroma is described as “curious” or “odd.”

Shin-Shouhin writes, “To be frank, it’s not a very delicious aroma.” The initial taste, Shin-Shouhin continues, is cola-like, but the aftertaste is coffee. The total sensation, the site adds, isn’t one of harmony.

“I didn’t think it tasted good, but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be,” Shin-Shouhin writes, adding that different people respond to different flavours.

That explains why a writer for ASCII Gourmet digs the drink, saying he quite liked it.


  • I’d give it a try. We never seem to get good flavours of anything here, Japan gets all the great Pringles flavours too.

  • I would totally try this. I will try interesting things now and then that I see. One of the best things was the KFC tacos with zinger sauce.

    The late night Dorito flavours were nothing special.

    If you ever come across lavender ice cream, that’s something to at least try once in your life.

  • Gotta love Japan’s beverages. Was there this year and myself and my 6yo daughter set challenge to try every type of (clear) flavoured water. Mandarin & Nashi-Pear were the favourites.
