Did you know that coffee beans grow inside of a cherry? In the world of Starbucks coffee craft, the outer husk of the cherry, also known as Cascara, is having a star moment this season. Embracing this often-neglected part of a coffee plant, the subtly sweet Cascara is made into a syrup with complex flavors reminiscent of dark brown sugar and maple.
Using all the elements of coffee from the bean down to the husk, Starbucks introduces a refreshing take on the classic cold brew – the Cascara Cold Foam Cold Brew. Cascara, more commonly known as the husk of the coffee cherry, adds a unique boost to this revitalizing cold beverage with its complex and slightly sweet flavor. A fusion of flavors and textures, the cold brew is topped with a smooth layer of cold foam made from low-fat milk and cascara syrup and has hints of brown sugar and maple derived from the combination of the cherry and black coffee.
Available starting September 11 for a limited time only, Starbucks is introducing three new coffee-forward beverages.
A new addition to the Starbucks menu of espresso beverages is the Flat White. Carefully crafted with bold ristretto shots and a thin layer of velvety steamed whole milk, the drink is perfectly balanced with sweet notes and is finished with a simple latte art dot.
Those looking for a warm and comforting cup can also try the Caramel Cinnamon Cookie Latte. Available for a limited time only, this latte is topped with fluffy whipped cream, sweet caramel sauce, and cinnamon and crunchy cookie crumbles which add hints of caramel, cinnamon and warm spice to complement its espresso base.
