Caramel Latte : A delightfully smooth and creamy latte with sweet caramel undertones. The ultimate indulgence.

One sip of this variety and I was hooked. I did not need to add sugar or any other flavour enhancer - it is perfect just the way it is. Caramel is one of my favourite flavours anyway so I was keen to see if it worked with coffee, and it certainly does. This is one variety I will be going out of my way to find. I actually liked it so much that I had a second sachet an hour after I finished the first which is something I would never normally do. Well, not unless the coffee is exceptionally good!
However, as we all know too well, different people have different preferences, and that was the case with this drink too. The comments that came from the friends who had kindly offered to do a taste test for me varied from "elegant coffee candy" to "odd taste and quite weak". I guess it takes all sorts! But the positive comments greatly outweighed the negatives.
Everyone agreed on some things however. Almost everyone described the texture as creamy and commented on the caramel taste which they all really liked. I thought the caramel came through quite strongly and lifted the drink from the ordinary to something quite special. I also liked the fact that the drink is sufficiently sweet (it contains both plain sugar and caramelised sugar) so there is no need to add any extra.
We had the coffee with some plain gingernut biscuits, mandarins, and crudites with a lemon and dill dip; this was an ideal accompaniment as food of this sort is not too rich. I think it would be overkill to serve such a creamy drink with rich food as it would not be so good for the digestion, and it would be a shame to spoil the effect.
I plan to pack a couple of sachets to enjoy at work. I refuse to drink the cheap powdered coffee served at my workplace: I am not fussy about most things, but coffee is the exception. What is life without a decent caffeine fix? I take my own coffee bags for my usual black coffee, but now that I have discovered caramel latte I will alternate the two so that I get the best of both worlds. Sachets are a convenient way to take your favourite drink with you when you are away from home and cannot fit a coffee machine in your computer bag!
