When you think of Coca-Cola do you immediately think, wow, I'd love to have a coffee at the exact same time? Then, today, your dreams have come true. Coca-Cola has revealed 'Coca-Cola Plus Coffee No Sugar' and Australians will be the first in the world to taste it.

You read that correctly, Coca-Cola and coffee are together at last with the release of the hard-to-abbreviate Coca-Cola Plus Coffee No Sugar. This fusion of flavours with sugar has been floating around in Japan for a few weeks now, but Australians will be treated to a sugar free version. It begins rolling out to stores today.

This will be a limited edition flavour that will only be available over the summer. Coca-Cola describe it as a "fresh take on the delicious taste of Coca-Cola Classic" with the "unmistakable aroma of real coffee and some subtle caramel undertones". According to Coca-Cola Australia, it actually contains less caffeine than you would find in your regular latte or flat white, but adds an extra 11mg compared to the Classic Coca-Cola. It's designed to be drunk icy cold.

Stay tuned to Lifehacker in the coming days because we will get to tasting 'CCPCNS' and revealing just how great this strange new world, where soft drinks and coffee collide, truly is.

    Coke's new unified branding thing fell over quickly, didn't it? They had the colours for the main varieties with the red circle on it (with full red for 'regular' coke), then they added the coloured bar to the full red for modifications to regular coke (vanilla, no sugar), and now they have 'plus coffee, no sugar' and they've given up entirely and just put this weird brown dripping gradient thing.
    I imagine a room full of designers, extremely proud of their work, throwing their hands up in frustration when this was announced.

    Isn't Coke full of Caffeine? So are they just putting in more Caffeine?

    I wonder if it will make a good mixer for a cheap Espresso Martini??

      You are what is wrong with the world.

    Question is, will this taste like a good cola ruined by adding a coffee, or a good coffee ruined by adding a cola?

      It tastes like good cola, ruined by coffee. It tastes foul and smells like the wax from a beauty salon used to wax my legs and etc.
