    Lost Sheep Coffee launches RTDs traceable from farm to can

    With Ready to Drink Coffee trending, Lost Sheep Coffee – the brand behind the UK’s first speciality grade airtight Nespresso Compatible Eco Pods – is launching a new range of barista quality, speciality grade ready-to-drink canned iced coffees that can be traced from farm to can.

    The Lost Sheep Coffee Iced Latte and Iced Mocha RTD cans are made using the brand’s award-winning Get To The Hopper speciality grade coffee, a blend of beans from Paranaiba in Brazil and Huila in Colombia (rated Grade 1a on the coffee industry’s standardised scale of one to five) which are hand-roasted at the brand’s dedicated roastery in Whitstable to create a super smooth, chocolatey caramel blend.

    Both drinks are made with skimmed milk and are under 85 calories a can, appealing to consumer demand for lighter options.

    “With Gen Z consumers more likely to drink ready to drink coffee than hot coffee, the category is buzzing, yet right now in the UK there isn’t another brand using ‘farm to can’ traceable, speciality grade beans in a ready to drink milk-based coffee format,” said Founder, Stuart Wilson.

    “We want to be the first to do this, making fully traceable, speciality grade coffee more accessible to a new generation of coffee lovers.

    “Many other ready to drink coffee products on the market use instant coffee as an ingredient, but ours uses speciality grade coffee beans, which are the highest grade you can get in the world.

    “The blend we use is ‘Get To The Hopper’, our award-winning coffee that combines the finest beans from Paranaiba in Brazil (grown at an altitude of 1100 meters above sea level) with carefully sourced beans from Huila in Colombia (grown at altitudes of 1500 to 2000 metres.)

    “With 35 per cent of consumers interested in ready-to-drink coffee with functional benefits functional coffee offers a strong opportunity for our brand as we innovate and expand the range, and we’ll be looking to launch products with added protein and vitamins as we head into the second half of 2024,” concluded Wilson

    Lost Sheep Iced Latte and Iced Mocha ready to drink cans are available  to independent retailers via distributors Lansdell Soft Drinks and Chapple & Jenkins from June 2024 with more stockists to follow. RRP £2.20 for a 250ml can.
