Starbucks Canada Launches its First Non-Dairy Foam as part of its Summer Menu
Starbucks Canada is expanding its summer-inspired menu, adding Cold Brew or Nitro Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almond Foam to its lineup. Starting June 23, customers can treat themselves to this delicious non-dairy delight, or try the new non-dairy foam on their favourite iced coffee.
These new beverages are intended as a subtly sweet option with coffee-forward notes. The non-dairy foam layer is made from flavourful ingredients like almond beverage, vanilla syrup, and cinnamon, all with 40 calories.
Cold foam is designed to be the perfect finish to cold beverages. It’s frothed cold instead of hot and blended until smooth, creating layers of creamy texture and flavour without the cream. Cinnamon Almond Foam is airier than other foam options and can also be modified with soy.
Starbucks is committed to including more plant-based options on its menu. Introducing Cold Brew or Nitro Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almond Foam only adds to its growing list of non-dairy beverages. In January, Starbucks launched two new non-dairy hot beverages — the Almond Honey Flat White and the Coconut Latte — and recently introduced three new Iced Coconut Drinks: Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink, Iced Pineapple Matcha Drink, and Iced Golden Ginger Drink.
As for food, Starbucks added the Beyond Meat®, Cheddar and Egg Sandwich to its core offerings in March. The delicious breakfast sandwich has a plant-based patty and expands Starbucks meatless breakfast options.
Convenient ways to enjoy Starbucks favourites
There are multiple ways for customers to order the new Cold Brew or Nitro Cold Brew with Cinnamon Almond Foam. This includes drive-thru, Starbucks® Delivers with Uber Eats (Restrictions and fees apply. See Uber Eats app for details and location availability), mobile ordering, grab-and-go, and dine in at participating stores.
At select locations, customers who use the Starbucks® App to order ahead and pay can pick up their order from a barista at the door or at the drive-thru. For those new to using the Starbucks App, here are step-by-step instructions for digital ordering.
As Starbucks gradually re-expands its services to grab-and-go and dine-in, customers will also be able to walk into a cafe and place an order at the counter. Customers can pay with any method, however, Starbucks encourages downloading and using the Starbuck App for contactless payment at participating stores.
Starbucks has announced a number of in-store safety measures to help protect the health and well-being of its partners (employees) and customers. This includes adding floor guides and signage to maintain social distancing, plexi-shields at some POS and handoff areas, and requiring all partners to wear facial coverings during their shifts.
Starbucks will continue to work closely with local leadership, health authorities and provincial governments as the landscape and regulations change.
