Nescafé has added three plant-based products to its Gold instant coffee range. There are three sachet varieties in the Plant-Based Latte range to mix with different non-dairy milks.

The vegan range includes Almond, Coconut and Oat, blended with Arabica and Robusta coffee beans.

Nestlé Beverages head of marketing Olga Starush said: “Nescafé coffee is loved by Australians and we do not take this for granted. We are always looking for the next exciting innovation idea. With the launch of Nescafé Gold Plant-Based Latte range, we are bringing the non-dairy trend out of cafés and into home. Now coffee aficionados who prefer plant-based milk alternatives can enjoy their favourite lattes anytime, anywhere.”

The range is available from June at Coles and independent retailers nationwide at a RRP of $6.30 for a pack of 6 sachets.
