Coffee company Starbucks has launched new ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages – Cocoa & Honey with Cream Cold Brew and Cubano Doubleshot Espresso, in the US.

The new beverages are claimed to be inspired by Cuban coffee.

Cocoa & Honey with Cream Cold Brew is available at grocery stores in West Coast, Northeast, Southeast and Great Lakes regions.

It  joins the black, unsweetened Starbucks Cold Brew launched last year.

"The new beverages were inspired by Cuban coffee."

 Doubleshot varieties include Espresso Cubano, Espresso Salted Caramel Cream, and coffee and Protein Caramel.

The company is also bottling its Blonde and Dark Roast coffees in 48 ounce bottles.

Blonde Roast is designed for those who prefer a light and mellow flavour, while the new Dark Roast is for a bold and robust coffee experience.

Starbucks has more than 40 ready-to-drink beverages and over $2bn in retail business.
