Caffeinated Coca-Cola Signature Coffee Drink Ideas

Does coffee and soda pop sound like a weird combination? If you think so, it makes sense! It is not often that you find weird coffee flavors with exotic coffee names that use alliteration like this. 


This is certainly one of the most weird signature coffee drink ideas with one of the most tongue-twisting names. If you are not used to high levels of caffeine, it might also make you feel weird for a moment. Just remember that the caffeine will make you feel better overall. For a less caffeinated approach to this weird coffee flavor, substitute a can of regular Coca-Cola with a can of caffeine-free Coca-Cola


You will need…

  • Four shots of espresso 
  • A can of Coca-Cola 
  • Ice



  1. Pull two shots of espresso, followed by two more shots of espresso.


Tip -- When you pull ristretto shots, you can pull two shots at once very easily. It’s okay if you can only pull long shots, but just be prepared to have four shot glasses ready instead of two! 


  1. While the third and fourth shots are pulling, prepare your sixteen-ounce coffee cup. 
  2. Fill your cup with about six ounces of Coca-Cola. 
  3. Take as many ice cubes as you want and put them into your iced coffee cup.
  4. When the espresso shots have finished pulling, add the espresso shots to the top. 


Tip -- Do not stir your weird coffee names beverage if you want to keep the flavors separate. Eventually, the espresso and Coca-Cola will merge together, but leaving your Coca-Cola signature coffee drink ideas unstirred makes the experience even more weird and exciting!
