Introducing Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew
For generations, mulling spices have been a part of the holiday season, with the aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg filling the air as they simmer on stovetops.
This holiday, Starbucks is offering a cool twist on spice with the new Starbucks® Spiced Sweet Cream Nariño 70 Cold Brew. Our barista in Chicago shares how this could become a new tradition.
Our First Cold Coffee Holiday Drink
“We know our customers are looking for even more options in cold coffee,” said Yoke Wong from Starbucks beverage development team. “Although we’ve offered iced and blended versions of our holiday espresso beverages before, this is our first time creating a cold coffee holiday beverage.”
The beverage starts with Starbucks® Nariño 70 Cold Brew Coffee, which is slow-steeped for 20 hours. The cold brew is then spiced with the flavors of cinnamon, anise, nutmeg and vanilla, and finished with a float of house-made sweet cream.
“The spices complement the cold brew and bring out the cocoa notes in the coffee,” Wong said. “It’s a flavor reminiscent of the holiday season.”
This is just one of our delicious holiday drinks. Check out our story that breaks down our seven offerings to match your mood.
