Beverages & Food

New Chocolate Cream Cold Brew

Cool down with Starbucks newest cold coffee, the Chocolate Cream Cold Brew. Inspired by nostalgic summer moments, the beverage features Starbucks® Cold Brew that is topped with a light, sweet and silky chocolate cream cold-foam, and is sweetened with vanilla syrup.

“When creating this beverage, we wanted to bring our customers a drink that would transport them back to their favorite summer memories with each sip,” said Rosalyn Batingan of Starbucks beverage development team. “The classic combination of coffee and notes of chocolate, along with the malt flavor in the chocolate cream cold foam, are reminiscent of a chocolate malted milkshake or that last bit of melted chocolate ice cream on a warm summer day to recreate the sweet, creamy flavor of summers past.”

“When creating this beverage, we wanted to bring our customers a drink that would transport them back to their favorite summer memories with each sip.”

Starbucks Cold Brew first joined the menu in 2015, and is made from a custom blend of Latin American and African beans specifically chosen and expertly roasted for this brew method. It’s handcrafted by Starbucks baristas in small batches daily, and slow-steeped in cool water for 20 hours, resulting in sweet, smooth flavors with soft cocoa notes.

New Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar, returning Unicorn Cake Pop and more

The new Lime-Frosted Coconut Bar combines chewy coconut, oatmeal and mini white chocolate chips, topped with lime frosting, a drizzle of white icing and a sprinkle of coconut shavings, for a taste of summer with every bite. Now available as part of the permanent Starbucks menu.
