It has definitely got a bit colder, windier and wetter this past week, and if we wanted conclusive proof that the summer had come to an end, we have it, as Costa Coffee have unveiled their autumn menu.
For all you muffin lovers, there is the new Lotus Biscoff muffin, which looks delicious and is available right now from £2.25.
The muffin has a mouth watering Lotus Biscoff spread centre and is finished with toffee icing and a Lotus Biscoff biscuit perched on top.
Well, if you liked last years spiced trio of the cold brew, latte and hot chocolate, you are going to be happy as they are back again in 2019.
Costa Coffee hopes the much loved trio of drinks provide customers with a “taste of autumn” that includes spiced cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, ginger, a caramel toffee flavour, and a topping of extra cinnamon and caramel.
If you enjoyed this autumn line up last year, you will be very pleased to hear that the price remains the same, at only £2.95.
A new twist for 2019 has been added, you can now make each of the drinks vegan by having the new and improved syrup recipe.

For a limited time only, and just in time for Autumn, you can now get Costa’s Gingerbread Latte pods for your Tassimo machine at home. So if you fancy recreating your favourite Costa Coffee drink without having to set foot outside of your home, you are in luck.
The cheapest place we have seen to buy Costa’s Gingerbread Latte pods is from Amazon, you can order today, and they will be with you tomorrow, and you don’t even have to step out of the door to get them.
- Costa Gingerbread Latte from Tassimo has the authentic Costa Coffee Taste

You will pay £2.95 for a gingerbread latte in the shop, but shop smartly and you can have a cup at home for only 50p.

Watch the Sugar Content
Last year Costa Coffee, as well as a number of other popular high street coffee shop chains got quite a bit of negative press because of the amount of sugar contained in some of their drinks.
NHS guidelines recommend that adults should consume no more than 30g’s of sugar in a single day, but Costa Coffee’s spiced bonfire hot chocolate actually contained 36g of sugar, in a single drink!
Following the backlash from the media in 2018, the coffee chain said the spiced bonfire hot chocolate was only served in its smallest cup size.
However, this year, you can now get any of the spiced drinks in medio and primo cups.
Costa Coffee confirmed the below sugar contents for each of the three spiced drinks with semi-skimmed milk in a primo cup.
- Spiced Hot Chocolate – 34.8g
- Spiced Latte – 24.6g
- Cold Brew – 15.5g
The lunch deal has also been confirmed to now run from 11am-close, which will please many people on split shifts as the previous 2pm finish caught a lot of us out!
Remember, you can get a panini, soup, sandwich, drink and a snack all for only £4.95, which is excellent value.
With the autumn specials of Roasted Carrot & Coriander Soup (£2.95) and Bolognese Mac & Cheese (£3.95) added, there is something new for everyone.
