Coffee-Flavored Wine in a Can Exists
New York Magazine ^

Posted on 06/26/2014 1:15:18 PM PDT by nickcarraway

If you're going to drink wine in a can, you should probably make it coffee-flavored, and fantastically enough, this stuff comes in two low-cal, slim-can "flavors," if you will: Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino. Being the first to market with a coffee wine is a not-inconsiderable bump in mirth from the people at Friends Fun Wine, "creators of the 'fun wine' category," albeit one that was previously limited to hum-drum canned sangria and even less fun 6 percent ABV strawberry moscato. Still, it all feels a bit uninspired, so long as Aussies keep throwing back Nerds-Nutella coffee bombs, anyhow.

Sorry, wrong thread.

But seriously, coffee wine. Bad idea. Coffee in a can, bad idea. Wine in a can, bad idea. BadIdea-cubed.

There are so many things wrong about that sentence. I don’t like coffee or wine and I consider this an insult to both.

Coffee flavored wine? Yuk.

Do you like your coffee black, red or white?

Is this to be sipped in a mug or in a wine glass?
Is the coffee aged to its perfection in an oak barrel?
Could I add half-n-half to the wine?

No thank you. I prefer wine-flavored wine. If I want to taste coffee, I’ll drink coffee.

Why not? At home I drink my espresso from a beer mug.

Which wines-in-a-can are the appropriate pairings with which meats-in-a-can?

“COFFEE WINE” is like “MODERATE REPUBLICAN”. It assaults your common sense and turns your stomach.

I think I could take it over the bubble gum and marshmallow varieties I've seen.

Not a wine drinker, but I much prefer my beer on tap or out of a can (poured in a frozen pint). Seems every other bottle I open is missing some carbonation.

I like wine. I like coffee. But together? In a can? I’ll pass.
