Coca-Cola has teamed up with Walmart and drone flight services provider DroneUp to deliver its new Coca-Cola with Coffee and its zero-sugar variant to customers in Coffee County, Georgia. As part of a launch stunt, select customers who live in single-family residences within a one-mile radius of Coffee County’s Walmart Supercenter could have their coke-coffee fix delivered via drone. According to the enthusiasts at DroneDJ, the drone appeared to be a customized DJI Matrice 600 Pro with four arms to hold the package during flight and a tether system to lower the product at the drop-off location. This enabled the drone operators to avoid any risk of the drone coming into contact with people on the ground. Coca-Cola with Coffee and its zero-sugar option are infused with Brazilian coffee and come in a variety of flavors. Coca-Cola with Coffee is available in Dark Blend, Vanilla, and Caramel, while its zero-sugar counterpart comes in Dark Blend and Vanilla. Each 12-oz. can contains 69 mg of caffeine. A 12-oz. can of standard Coke contains 34 mg, Diet Coke contains 46 mg, while the same-sized coffee has 140 mg or more.
