If you love coffee, coke or any kind of caffeinated beverage, then you’re next trip should be to Japan. Coca-Cola has just released Coca-Cola Coffee Plus.  The drink has 50% more caffeine and 50% less calories than regular Coke.  The coffee cola is a vending machine exclusive only available in Japan and comes in the form of extract powder.

Highsnobiety.com says Coca-Cola Coffee Plus isn’t the first coffee crossover from the brand. It previously released  Coca-Cola BlāK in Europe and the United States, although it only lasted for two years.  Word is that those who have sampled the new drink say it initially tastes like Coca-Cola, but the aftertaste is coffee. The drink is being sold in vending machines.

Bizjournals.com says Coca-Cola has plans to reach the coffee market. The company is distributing Dunkin’ Donuts new line of ready-to-drink coffee, which hit the shelves earlier this year. The company's tea brand Gold Peak also announced that it will launch a ready-to-drink coffee line in 2017.

Additionally, Coca-Cola and McDonald's Corporation (NYSE: MCD) recently partnered on a line of ready-to-drink coffees to expand the McCafe retail presence with three new flavors -- caramel, vanilla and mocha. The U.S. launch is scheduled for early next year.
