While it might be 19 years since the iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte has joined the Starbucks fall beverage menu, the popular coffee company continues to evolve its fall beverage offerings. Brewing tradition and trends, this year’s beverages are ready to welcome the crisp air with delightful beverages that appeal to a wide audience.
Even though other beverage brands have rolled out the pumpkin beverages and other fall offerings early in August, the return of the Starbucks fall menu is always well received. As the company that might have started the PSL craze, the fan favorite has many people counting down the hours till that first sip on August 30.
While there is always a thirst for the classic, the Starbucks fall beverage menu has newer offerings that offer the variety which people crave. The Pumpkin Cream Cold Brew has returned for yet another year. As people wait for the cooler temperature to come, this beverage continues to find an audience.
Last year, Starbucks announced the Apple Crisp Macchiato and it found a loyal audience. This year the beverage gets a nondairy update. Now the Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato blends the Starbucks Blonde Espresso with the enjoyable oatmilk. This offering ensures that all beverage drinkers can have a sip of the newest fall favorite.
What other offerings join the Starbucks fall beverage menu?
In addition to the PSL and the nondairy Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato, the whole coffee beans bags have a refreshed look. The packaging seems to build off that idea of morning mantras by celebrating the people, experiences and moments behind each blend. Instead of that bleary eye pour into the coffee maker, it invites people to ponder a moment or two and celebrate the brew in the cup.
Of course, any Starbucks beverage needs a little sweet treat pairing. New for this year is an Owl Cake Pop. Whether enjoyed with that PSL or on its own, it adds a little whimsy to the season.
In addition, other fall favorites return. From pumpkin loaf to the always delight pumpkin scone, these pastries are always the pick of the patch.
The Starbucks fall beverage menu begins on August 30 for a limited time. Check with each location for availability and other offerings.
