Philadelphia, PA (August 21, 2017) – For limited-time only, La Colombe debuts its seasonal-batch Pumpkin Spice Draft Latte – made with expertly roasted cold-pressed Nizza espresso and fresh milk, combined with real Pumpkin puree and a blend of natural spices. Available exclusively online starting August 24, and in select retailers nationwide beginning mid-September, La Colombe is delivering a true fall classic with no artificial ingredients and a fraction of the sugar found in competing offerings.
“The big beverage companies just don’t get it,” said Todd Carmichael, Co-Founder and CEO of La Colombe. “A seasonal drink, like pumpkin spice, should be a celebration of fall and the harvest time, not a harsh, unhealthy, chemical, sugar bomb.”
La Colombe is calling on people to reconsider what they put into their bodies.
“Hey big beverage, pumpkins are grown all across America. They are sweet, and delicious, and good for us,” added Carmichael.
Draft Latte — the revolutionary cold coffee beverage — delivers a completely unique, cafe-style drinking experience thanks to a patent-pending process invented by La Colombe’s CEO and Co-Founder Todd Carmichael. This process brings the foam traditionally found in a hot latte to the refreshingly cold and portable, ready-to-drink Draft Latte can.
This new seasonal variety will join Draft Latte’s existing lineup, which includes the original Draft Latte, Vanilla Draft Latte, Mocha Draft Latte, Triple Draft Latte, Chai Draft Latte, Coconut Draft Latte, and Coconut Mocha Draft Latte. La Colombe also produces a non-textured, ready-to-drink coffee: Pure Black®, a canned cold-pressed coffee.
Earlier this year, La Colombe announced its growth into 25,000 points of distribution to coincide with the start of cold coffee season. The explosive rise has made La Colombe a breakout brand in the $3 billion ready-to-drink coffee category. And, with plans to introduce multiple new Draft Latte varieties this year — including two seasonal – the specialty coffee company is just getting started.
