Cafe Latte Flavored Water Released In Japan

Gif: Asahi

This week, Asahi Soft Drinks is releasing cafe latte flavored water. For a country that already has yogurt flavored water, this should surprise no one.


Asahi’s Clear Latte, which is described as “clear espresso and milk,” has zero caffeine, no fat, and is low calorie.

It’s apparently made from expresso extract, whey minerals from raw milk and Asahi’s delicious water.

Here is the previously mentioned yogurt water, which first came out a few years ago.

This is not bad, actually! So I have every reason to believe coffee-flavored water might be okay. Not great, but okay.

I just had it this morning. The milk taste was good, but I wish the coffee flavor was a tad stronger. It was also way too sweet for my taste. I’m lactose intolerant, so this is the better option than a real cafe latte. Oh and the yogurt one is soooooo gooood when you mix it with unflavored protein powder.
