The next drink from this years Costa Christmas range is the Salted Caramel Latte!
I hadn’t heard of salted caramels until I visited Seattle and did the coffee tour in February and now they are everywhere. I’m not complaining as I quite like the flavour as long as the salt is properly balanced.
I enjoyed this drink, but it was more on the caramel side as I didn’t really get any hints of salt. The caramel sauce on top over powered the coffee and mixed with the cream was just a bit too much. If I were to get it again I would skip the cream and sauce.
In a way this tasted just like the Caramella drink they introduced in September, but in a latte version. Now thinking about it I am disappointed with this drink as it didn’t have a salt kick at all. What I have liked about the salted caramel chocolates I have tried is that there is a proper taste of salt at some point that complements the sweetness. This doesn’t have that at all so it shouldn’t really be called a Salted Caramel Latte, but just a caramel latte!
Wow this might be my first proper disappointed post on coffee, but I’m sure they will make it up to me with another one in the range 🙂
