McDonald's "Café Latte" and "Caramel Latte" Get a Flavor Makeover: What Are the Key Changes?

Sipping on a fresh taste: the new flavors of your favorite fast-food lattes revealed!

TOKYO, Jan 17 (News On Japan) - McDonald's Japan is set to introduce a revamped version of its popular "Café Latte" and "Caramel Latte" after nearly three years. The renewed beverages will be available from January 24 (Wednesday) at McDonald's outlets across the country. What's new about the updated "Café Latte" and "Caramel Latte"?

Since 2009, McDonald's has been serving delicious and high-quality café beverages through its McCafe brand, using dedicated espresso machines to carefully extract the espresso used in their "Café Latte" and "Caramel Latte." In this latest update, McDonald's has changed some of the beans' origins, meticulously blending several types of beans, each roasted to a precise degree to enhance the flavor.

The new versions aim to evolve the taste that comes solely from milk and espresso by seeking the perfect balance that brings out the natural sweetness of milk. Customers can now enjoy the new "Café Latte" with its rich espresso flavor, creamy foam with a smooth texture, and lingering natural sweetness of milk. The "Caramel Latte" adds a sweet and slightly bitter caramel syrup to this experience.

Café Latte (Hot/Iced) Price: S starting from 210 yen, M starting from 280 yen

Caramel Latte (Hot/Iced) Price: S starting from 270 yen, M starting from 340 yen
