Workshop launches first Honduran coffee
Workshop Coffee has launched its first Honduran coffee, produced by Francisco Alvarado and his family in the Masaguara district of Honduras’ Intibuca department.
“As part of developing our sourcing and roasting programmes, we actively seek out coffees from origins we’ve yet to explore,” said Workshop in its announcement. “In the last two years, we have begun to purchase coffees from Ecuador and Nicaragua, and this year we have continued casting the net wider, looking for delicious coffees from Honduras. We’re pleased to say, we’ve found our first one.”
It continued that it found the coffee quite unique, compared to those of neighbouring Guatemala, El Salvador and Nicaragua. “When profiling the roast, we have focussed on accentuating the body and sweetness of this deep, satisfying filter coffee.”
Sober Up - a new detox shot from Red Bull exec
Sober Up is a detox shot that claims to 'detox the body, support liver health and prevent hangovers' being launched by former Red Bull CEO Harry Drnec, reports Metro.
It can be taken before, during or after drinking to help prevent a hangover.
The drink is made from a combination of naturally sourced ingredients, including turmeric, which is known for its anti inflammatory properties; peppermint, which can relive stomach problems and nausea; Ginseng, which helps with brain power; and wormwood which can help support liver health.
But you can’t get your hands on it just yet – Drenc and his team launched an IndieGoGo page to help fund the production of the drink and with all funds secure, the launch is likely to be not too far away

Coca-Cola European Partners has launched an advertising campaign for its new Fuze Tea iced tea drink, in a move designed to “highlight the importance of slowing life down and taking a moment for yourself”, reports Talking Retail.

It is also running across out-of-home spaces, mobile advertising, and content on Facebook and Instagram.
Califia Farms introduces three new vegan RTDs
Califia Farms, the US specialists behind vegan ready-to-drink cold brew coffees and plant-based milks has launched three new beverages and has reduced the sugar content by 40% across its portfolio (1.4g per oz down to 0.8g per oz).
“As consumers have increasingly asked for lower sugar in the foods and beverages they consume, Califia has not only met, but exceeded, that demand – while continually innovating on great taste,” said Califia Farms CEO and founder Greg Steltenpohl.
In a market where some of the biggest selling iced coffee drinks contain over 10 teaspoons of sugar per serving, Califia’s most indulgent SKU’s offer just a fraction of that so we can enjoy flavorsome cold brew coffees without the guilt.
The three new brews are:
- Califia Farms Mocha Cold Brew Coffee - a velvety, dairy-free coffee blended with cocoa powder, cane sugar, sea salt and Califia Farms artisanally-inspired, creamy Almondmilk. 20mg caffeine per 100ml, this beverage is soy-free, gluten-free, carrageenan-free, kosher, and vegan, and is made with 100% direct trade sourced Arabica beans and comes in at 37 calories per 100ml.
- Califia Farms Chocolate Coconut Almond Blend - a smooth and creamy Chocolate Coconut Almond blend made from real coconut cream, cocoa and California almonds. With 38 calories per 100ml and 4.2g sugar, this ‘guilt-free’ treat has been made from naturally sweet pure cane sugar making it the perfect chocolaty plant-based milk for any smoothie or drinkable desert. Gluten-free, vegan, non-dairy, non-soy, kosher and contains 50% more calcium than dairy milk.
- Multi-serve ‘Pure Black’ Cold Brew Coffee - this single-strength coffee has been made with 100% direct trade sourced Arabica beans and provides a smooth, potent taste. Bottled in Califia Farms signature 750ml carafe, the Pure Black Cold Brew Coffee can be enjoyed straight black, cold, hot, or flavoured with one of Califia Farms top-selling dairy-free plant milks. Califia offers a proprietary cold brewing process that ensures that the coffee beans in its Pure Black Cold Brews have greater contact with water, which imparts a richer flavour and freshness.
