Kahlúa’s new flavor: Blonde Roast Style

People take their coffee seriously. But, with all the serious things happening in 2020, it’s safe to say that we could all use something less serious, like a drink.

In the spirit of International Coffee Day, October 1st, Kahlúa is launching a brand-new flavor, Kahlúa Blonde Roast Style and naming it the unofficial “Drink Drink” of the holiday. Kahlúa wants all those “serious” coffee people to know that once 4pm hits, this is the beverage they should reach for. 

Made with medium roast coffee and hints of caramel, toffee and citrus flavors, this new expression of Kahlúa taps into consumer’s demand for lighter and more refreshing coffee cocktails.

Consumers’ interest and demand for light coffee drinks is on the rise especially as everyone continues to experiment with at-home cocktail making. Kahlúa Blonde Roast Style hopes to satisfy even more coffee-cocktail fans by introducing an option with a fresh, citrus taste.  

Kahlúa Blonde Roast Style is made with our medium roast coffee and hints of caramel, toffee and citrus flavors. The new flavor offers a distinctive coffee and rum aroma perfect for whipping up delicious, flavorful cocktails for International Coffee Day and every day. 

“As the world’s number one coffee liqueur, Kahlúa is always tapping into coffee culture trends and looking for ways to inspire coffee lovers at their next brunch or after-work hangout,” said Troy Gorczyca, U.S. Brand Director at Kahlúa. “Plus, we are known to make delicious coffee cocktails and this taps into the growing trends around more light coffee cocktails, so Kahlúa Blonde Roast Style was a natural next step for us as a brand.”
