This weekend marks the official beginning of fall, and Starbucks has been ahead of the season with its beverages. In late August, the Pumpkin Spice Latte made its official return to the menu, and now other beverages are joining it this week.
Starting Thursday, September 20, several beverage items will be available to customers. One returning favorite is the Maple Pecan Latte, back for its second year. It features a smooth blend of signature espresso and milk, combined with notes of maple syrup and pecan and finished with a autumn sugar topping. This year, it comes with a special twist – the beverage is available in both hot and iced versions, the iced latte finished with the company’s signature Cold Foam.
The new Cold Foam Dark Cocoa Nitro is inspired by a dark chocolate stout. Nitro Cold Brew is topped with bittersweet cocoa Cold Foam, bringing out the coffee’s natural chocolate notes.
Also new to Starbucks is the limited-time Starbucks Passport Series. Celebrating coffees from around the world, the series follows the coffee harvest from different growing regions, bringing whole beans to customers at their peak freshness, perfectly roasted to highlight the range of flavors inherent to the region.
The first installment of the Passport Series consists of whole bean coffees from Central America:
- Guatemala Casi Cielo: A medium roast, with a smooth body, bright lemon notes and lingering cocoa finish
- Honduras Marcala: Well-balanced dark roast, caramelly sweet with hints of dark chocolate
- Costa Rica Tarrazú: This blonde roast has a refreshing acidity, round body and juicy citrus notes
