World's First Coffee Wine launches in US

Friends Fun Wine, a Miami-based company, has introduced two new additions to its growing collection of low-alcohol, low calorie wines. Easy-to-drink Wine In A Can, Friends Fun Wine is combining the world's most popular Day Drink with the world's most popular Night Drink, creating the world's first Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino.

Of the two new varieties, Cabernet Coffee Espresso features a rich flavour of fresh cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate while Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino features sweet, refreshing Chardonnay grapes with vanilla cappuccino coffee and smooth hints of chocolate. These new flavours are sold in Friends Fun Wine's 250mL slim cans, which are convenient, portable, quick chilling and recyclable, containing two servings per can. At just 6% alcohol, Friends Fun Wine Coffee Wines offer consumers a great alternative to high-alcohol beverages..

"As creators of the Fun Wine category, the addition of Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino strongly aligns with our mission to deliver a FUN drinking experience," said Joe Peleg, CEO of Friends Fun Wine. "We are proud to be the first-to-market with our Fun Wine In A Can, and look forward to introducing the new coffee varieties to our Fun-Loving Fans."

Time will tell if this new trend will make it's way to South Africa.
