Starbucks Adds Tiramisu Latte, Coconut Milk and Coffee Subscription Service

(Chicago Tribune/TNS) -

Starbucks fanatics on Tuesday might have noticed new menu offerings at their favorite shop, including a new tiramisu latte and a favorite from last year, a caramel flan latte, along with a new coconut milk option for all its coffees, the company confirmed.

Also Tuesday, Starbucks said it will offer subscription delivery of reserve coffees from its Seattle tasting room.

The new lattes are available at stores nationwide for a limited time, basically during the winter season, although both can be iced for warm-weather climates, Starbucks spokeswoman Maggie Jantzen said.

The coconut milk addition, called Single Origin Sumatra Coconut Milk, is permanent and was the second-most-requested item of all time, next to a loyalty program, Jantzen said. It provides customers with an alternative to dairy and soy, she said. It will cost 60 cents more.

“We continually evaluate our product selections and introduce new items to our menu based on customer feedback,” she said.

Starbucks also implemented breakfast-food changes on Tuesday, adding a seasonal muffin and a permanent sandwich, according to Jantzen.

Starbucks’ new subscription service is available online and gives customers access to its line of “super-premium, small-lot coffees.”

It costs $24 per month, including shipping of coffee in 8.8-ounce bags, with discounts for longer-term subscriptions.

Coffees will be delivered within three to five days of being roasted, the company said.

The coffee comes from the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room, which opened in December and is “dedicated to roasting, coffee education and increasing availability of the company’s small-lot Reserve coffees,” Starbucks said.
