Move over, Pumpkin Spice: Starbucks Canada is rolling out a new fall espresso drink they think will win over the hearts, minds, stomach and wallets of the True North Strong and Free.
The Cardamom Latte debuts Sept. 6, 2018 coast to coast, and the ‘bux says they went with the spice most often associated with the flavours of southwestern India as we Canadians have pretty sophisticated palates, and it’s a “food trend to watch for” this year.
Here’s how they describe it: “Inspired by the craft of the Starbucks ReserveTM Roastery in Seattle, the Cardamom Latte was adapted specifically for Canadians, as customers gravitate toward elevated taste experiences that reflect our global appetite, in a way that only Starbucks and our skilled baristas can offer. The latte delivers a rich, complex spice through earthy, floral, citrus and vanilla notes to perfectly complement Starbucks signature Espresso Roast.”
Oh, and even though they’re super into this new creation, they will of course still have your PSL, along with other fall goodies, like pumpkin scones. They’re also adding a Cold Foam Dark Cocoa Nitro to their lineup, too.
