Guinness launch limited edition coffee

To celebrate rugby and the current Rugby World Cup taking place in Japan, British brewery Guinness and coffee roaster Tiki Tonga, founded by current Saracens captain and former British and Irish Lions player, Brad Barritt, have created a limited-edition coffee, 232 Brew.

Roasted at 232°C – the same temperature as the barley used to brew Guinness – the coffee has notes of fruit and nut chocolate with a rich mouthfeel and a long-lasting distinguished chocolate finish almost identical to Guinness in appearance. 232 Brew contains no alcohol.

The delicious blend will be available at selected venues across the country including Flat Iron Square (London), Oasthouse (Manchester) and Brigadiers (London).

Brad Barritt, Tiki Tonga co-founder said: “Coffee is a key ingredient to a rugby lifestyle – starting us off pre-training with an espresso and through a flat white post-tough session and more – and for me, it’s a key way to unwind and connect with friends. Through 232 Brew, we want to encourage people to get together to watch rugby and bring the team spirit.”

Niall McKee, Head of Guinness Stout Europe said: “The next six weeks are set to be some of the most exciting weeks of the year for fans of rugby, but we know that for many the early morning starts are far from ideal. That’s why we’ve partnered with Brad and the team at Tiki Tonga to create the ultimate coffee. We want to be there with rugby’s biggest fans for those early morning starts – bringing belief and team spirit.”
