Coffee wine is here, and it comes in a can

Friends Fun Wine Cabernet Coffee Expresso and Charndonnay Coffee Cappuccino
Friends Fun Wine

Caffeine-dependent stoners in Washington are getting THC-laced java when recreational pot sales become legal next month. Now, winos will receive a similar gift in two new coffee wines. Naturally, they come in cans.

Friends Fun Wine already has several canned Moscatos and sangrias to its name, but the latest varieties are a bold (like, dark roast bold) new direction. For the red fans, there's the Cabernet Coffee Espresso, which blends Cabernet grapes, espresso, and hints of chocolate. Meanwhile, white-wine drinkers can enjoy the Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino, a sweeter varietal with Chardonnay grapes, vanilla cappuccino coffee, and more hints of chocolate. These 6% ABV wines are currently going for $1.99 a can in 15 select states. So if you're in Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, or West Virginia, you should start experimenting with donut pairings immediately.
