Starbucks lovers in the US and Canada can rejoice in the knowledge that tomorrow there will be a new beverage available on the menu. the Iced Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato is the company’s first iced espresso beverage that features coconut milk. Until now coconut milk has only been an option for the handcrafted beverages, but that will all change tomorrow (July 12).
Christal Canzler, Starbucks senior product developer, says: “Summer is a great time to highlight coconut milk. It’s lighter in body than regular milk, and can be a little more refreshing. Macchiato is one of those great espresso beverages people love,” Canzler said. “With its layers of chocolate, caramel and coconut, this is a summery twist on a classic.”
You can find more information in the press release that Starbucks released earlier today.
While I don’t live in the US or Canada, I can’t enjoy this new drink myself. However, I’d love to hear your experiences about it when you get one. Leave a comment below telling us what you think!
