Costa Coffee has announced the launch of its Autumn menu – and it features a couple of tasty new toasties as well as the highly anticipated return of its Maple Hazel drinks line.

Fans will be able to get their mitts on the British chain’s Maple Hazel Latte, Maple Hazel Hot Chocolate, and more from August 31. 

The steaming beverages feature hazelnut-flavoured syrup and maple flavoured sauce, all topped with Light Whip and crunchy biscuit sprinkles.

For those not yet ready to give up on Summer, there is also a cold option available – the Maple Hazel Iced Latte.

Featuring the same seasonal syrups, the cool drink is made with cold milk over ice, as well as a shot of espresso. 

Costa Coffee is launching its brand new Autumn menu on August 31, featuring the anticipated return of its Maple Hazel line among other treats (Pictured: Maple Hazel range latte, iced latte and hot chocolate)

Chocolate lovers may be keen to try Costa’s new Chocolate Hazel Frappé, which boasts its signature roasted hazelnut-flavoured syrup, deluxe chocolate flavoured sauce, Light Whip, all topped with a chocolate cappuccino dusting. 

On top of the new drinks, the coffee giant has added food to its new Autumn lineup, notably two new toasties.

First up is the Hog Roast Toastie, featuring hickory pulled pork alongside spiced apple glaze and caramelised onion chutney. 

The sandwich is finished with sage and garlic stuffing and melted oak-smoked cheddar, all stuffed into cheesy garlic and herb bloomer bread.

Also on offer is the new Nacho Chilli Cheese and Chicken Toastie, which is filled with roast chicken, Mexicana cheese, and spicy jalapeños, all drizzled with cheese sauce served inside cheese and tortilla chip-topped bloomer bread.

The new additions means Costa now offers seven toasties, including its Chicken and Bacon sandwich and Vegan Ham and Cheese option.

Also new to the food menu is a range of sweet treats. 

As part of the Maple Hazel range’s return, the restaurant has welcomed back to the menu its Maple Hazelnut Muffin, which is filled with maple sauce and topped with a leaf-shaped cocoa decoration.

Fans can also get their hands on the new ‘secret’ Maple Hazel Frappé – exclusively available to Costa Club app members
