PURCHASE, NY -- PepsiCo has taken the wraps off Pepsi Café, a new beverage debuting in the U.S. in April that blends the taste of coffee with the sweeter undertones of Pepsi cola.

Featuring two flavors, original, and vanilla, a sweeter and creamier beverage. Pepsi Café is made with roasted Arabica coffee to and has nearly double the amount of caffeine than a regular Pepsi. It comes in 12-fl.oz. slim cans.

"We know that the consumers today are looking for products that meet the needs of energy, indulgence, and refreshment during that afternoon pick-me-up occasion," said Pepsi vice-president of marketing Todd Kaplan. "We are confident that cola fans, iced coffee drinkers and anyone in need of an extra caffeine boost will love the unexpected flavor medley of roasted coffee infused into the refreshing, crisp flavor of Pepsi."

Pepsi Café is not the brand's first time launching in the cola and coffee space. Pepsi was one of the first beverage brands to enter the category in 1996 with the launch of Pepsi Kona, a product the beverage giant says was ahead of its time.
