London | October 2023 — Collab Coffee has launched the UK’s only iced-coffee gaming brand, Kontrol Coffee, after recognising a gap in the market for a ready-to-drink (RTD) coffee designed for gamers looking to naturally fuel their play.
A Word from the Head Honcho
“The ready-to-drink coffee market is about to explode,” said Neale Salt, Commercial Partnerships Director of Collab Coffee, the expert coffee business behind Kontrol Coffee. “We aim to disrupt the gaming energy market and re-write the rules of in-game energy with caffeine in its most natural and delicious form. Kontrol Coffee offers an alternative to synthetic energy drinks and powders and connects with a highly engaged community of modern gamers and creators.
“That has always been Collab Coffee’s ultimate mission. As the UK’s interest in coffee increases, we are looking to place innovative new coffee brands into target niches in the marketplace. We are leading the UK’s coffee evolution!” says Neale.
According to Mordor Intelligence the RTD coffee market is projected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.55% during the forecast period 2023 - 2028.
The voice of the UK’s games industry, Ukie, states that the UK’s video games consumer market is up 17% compared to pre-pandemic figures and is maintaining its growth trajectory. Ukie valued it at £7.05bn in 2022.
Why sip just any coffee when you can sip one that’s Ubisoft-approved? Kontrol Coffee has partnered with Ubisoft following the release of their new title, Assassin’s Creed ® Mirage, on October 5. This powerful alliance will create the ultimate collectible as each Mirage Vanilla Latte coffee can will feature original artwork from the game.
“Part of our strategy for growth is aligning Kontrol Coffee with the world’s biggest gaming giants. We aim to place an iced-coffee can into every gamer’s hands giving them unrivalled next-level immersion into the action with every sip,” said Neale.
Kontrol Coffee has launched with four new flavours: Original Latte, Mocha, Caramel, and Mirage Vanilla Latte. They are all available in grab-and-go Kontrol cans, the largest available in the RTD coffee game.
Kontrol’s tagline: ‘Fuel your Game’ underlines its mission to pause gamers’ thirst, not their play.
