NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - Coca-Cola Co. announced Wednesday that it will launch a new coffee-cola drink in 2006.

Coca-Cola Blak will debut this January in France and then in several other countries, including the U.S., later in the year.

The company described the carbonated beverage as a mix of Coca-Cola and real coffee designed to appeal to adult consumers.

"It is a blend of unique Coke refreshment with the true essence of coffee and has a rich smooth texture and has a coffee-like froth when poured," Marc Mathieu, vice president of global core brands, said in a statement.
