Coca-Cola 'Coffee Plus' Debuts In Japan

Those who love soda and coffee can now skip the middleman and enjoy the two beverages as one. According to Shin Shouhin, Coca-Cola "Coffee Plus" debuted in Japan at 110 yen ($0.99), exclusive to the country's vending machines.

The product's cans look like a traditional Coca-Cola would, with the addition of three coffee beans and a cocoa-brown upper rim. Each 6.4-ounce can contains 34 milligrams of caffeine — the same as one 12-ounce serving of Coke. In comparison, The New York Daily News reports, one 12-ounce, or "tall," Starbucks iced coffee has 120 milligrams of caffeine.

One reporter in Japan said the drink tasted exactly as if he'd added coffee to Coke. "I do not think it's delicious, but it's not as bad as I thought," he wrote.

Some people on Twitter are skeptical, while others call the product a "game changer."

This isn't Coca-Cola's first rodeo with an espresso beverage. In 2006, the company introduced Coca-Cola "Blak" to France and the U.S. among other markets. The product was discontinued in 2008.
