Brewing up Iced Cold Adventures

As the second largest specialty coffee and expresso retailer in the U.S., Caribou Coffee looked to launch a ready-to-drink coffee for food, drug and mass merchandisers that could reach fans and soon-to-be fans nationwide.

The packaging needed to maintain the adventurous Caribou brand personality, while communicating its unique selling proposition – authentic, premium ingredients. With a custom to-go structure, we created an engaging, taste driven architecture that makes indulgence an everyday convenience.
