Costa unveils new coffee offering
Dubai, January 6, 2013
UK-based Costa Coffee has introduced Corto, a shorter, more intense, smooth and sweet coffee served in a glass along with specially-made complimentary almond biscotti, the new stylish way to enjoy coffee.
Corto comes in a small package; starting with Costa’s mocha Italia espresso, then the new range of classic milk, sweet chocolate and ultimate black pick me ups, that make up the Corto range, a statement from Costa said.
Classic Corto – Two Corto espresso shots extracted for five seconds and then topped with smooth textured milk for a quick pick me up or a shorter milk based coffee.
Mocha Corto - Two Corto espresso shots extracted for five seconds and then topped with smooth textured hot chocolate for a quick sweet chocolaty pick me up or a shorter chocolate based coffee.
Black Corto – strong black coffee extracted from three shots of espresso in 20 seconds for a longer, stronger style of coffee similar to Arabic and Greek.
The Classic Corto allows the final flourish with the perfect heart design created by the Barista; with Mocha Corto, it’s the foamy head finished with a coffee bean stencil; with Black Corto, it’s just pure coffee, the statement said. All the Costa Cortos are served in Corto glasses, on a primo saucer along with the almond biscotti.
Gihan Weerasinghe, Costa Coffee UAE, said: “Corto is a fantastic new range which will appeal to the tastes of customers looking for a quick pick-me-up, a sweet indulgence or a strong three-shot Black Corto as a smoother alternative to a triple espresso; with Mocha Corto and Classic Corto, we let the sweetness come through. Corto is also a great way for a Costa Barista to show off their skills.”
The new way to enjoy coffee is available across all 92 stores in the UAE, starting today (January 6) including the new Costa Metropolitan at Dubai International terminal 3 Concourse A. – TradeArabia News Service
