Burger King has been promoting their new coffee drinks like crazy lately. A few weeks ago they were selling small hot or iced coffees for the nearly free price of $.25. From today through March 24, Burger King is selling their small size lattes for $1.00. Outside of this special a small Burger King latte will set you back $2.59.
How Does it Taste?
Burger King mildly impressed me last month with their new iced coffees. Since they were only $.25, I picked up quite a few iced coffees. While most were good, some had so much flavored syrup in them that I felt like I was drinking pure chocolate. The consistency with them was not very good. However, the iced coffees were an improvement over the franchises previous installations.
So how does the latte fare in comparison to Burger King’s other new coffee drinks? The latte is definitely the best of the new offerings, but it wasn’t without flaws. The first sip of the latte tasted almost salty, although this might have been partially to blame for the lack of any sweetener. After adding a packet of sugar, the latte was much smoother to drink.
The latte had the consistency of a good latte and a decent amount of foam on top. The coffee was easy to drink, but didn’t hide the fact that it indeed contained coffee. I’d say that Burger King’s is comparable to McDonald’s lattes in terms of taste.
The Burger King latte proved to be an okay cup of coffee. The latte tasted better after the addition of a single packet of sugar, and the coffee was hot without being scalding. The latte is pricier than Burger King’s hot and iced coffees, but it is indeed the best cup of coffee the company has put out in a while. If you were thinking of trying the latte, make sure to stop in before March 24 and try one for $1.00.
Pros: Best coffee I’ve had from BK, about on par with McDonald’s lattes, was only $1.00
Cons: Needed a small addition of sugar, is made from a latte mix
