WASHINGTON (AFP) - Many Americans start their day with coffee and end it with a glass (or two) of wine. Now, one US company is offering both beverages... in one can.

Friends Fun Wine - whose canned products are made in the south of France - have introduced what they call the "world's first coffee-wine" - Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Espresso.

"Why not both?" the company said on Twitter.

The Cabernet Coffee Espresso features the "rich flavour of fresh Cabernet grapes, espresso coffee, and a hint of chocolate," while the Chardonnay variety includes wine, a hint of chocolate and vanilla cappuccino.
