Starbucks also expands the use of customers’ personal cups, becoming first national coffee retailer to accept reusable cups for every visit
On Tuesday, January 3, Starbucks greets the new year with the launch of a new winter menu. Making its debut is the Iced Hazelnut Oat Shaken Espresso, alongside the returning fan favourite Pistachio Cream Cold Brew and Pistachio Latte.
Starbucks is also introducing more ways for customers to order with their personal cups. Since the 1980s, customers have been able to bring in their own clean, personal cup when ordering in the store, and beginning Jan. 3 customers can now use their personal cup when ordering in the drive-thru and the Starbucks app. This milestone achieves a goal Starbucks set in 2022 to make it easier for customers to use reusable cups and furthers Starbucks efforts to reduce waste by 50% by 2030.
Iced Hazelnut Oat Shaken Espresso
The new Iced Hazelnut Oat Shaken Espresso is made with Starbucks Blonde Espresso, which is sweetened with hazelnut syrup, and then shaken to perfection and topped with smooth, creamy oat beverage. This new beverage is the latest addition to the popular Iced Shaken Espresso lineup, which is available year-round at Starbucks locations in Canada, and offers customers another plant-based beverage option.
"Hazelnut is a classic coffeehouse flavour – its smooth, nutty taste is perfectly complemented by the candied apple and bittersweet chocolate notes of Starbucks Blonde Espresso. The oat beverage adds a creamy and luscious texture to round out the Iced Hazelnut Oat Shaken Espresso." said Starbucks beverage developer Billy Altieri.
Pistachio is Back
Fan-favourite pistachio beverages are back at Starbucks stores nationwide, for a limited time while supplies last.
The beloved Pistachio Latte features cozy flavors of sweet pistachio and a brown-buttery topping paired with espresso and steamed milk. The Pistachio Latte is available hot, iced or as a Frappuccino blended beverage.
Also returning is the Pistachio Cream Cold Brew, which features Starbucks Cold Brew sweetened with vanilla syrup, topped with smooth, nutty pistachio cream cold foam and salted brown butter sprinkles.
Starbucks® Tribute Blend
In 2011, Starbucks® Tribute Blend was created to celebrate Starbucks 40th anniversary, the blend features four of Starbucks favorite origins: herbal Sumatra, chocolatey Columbia, spicy Papua New Guinea and fruit-forward Ethiopia. This nostalgic blend features tasting notes of black cherry and baking spices, highlighting the sweetest expressions of each origin.
