Starbucks debuts Juniper Latte in foodservice stores
Foodservice operator to donate portion of sales on World AIDS Day to (RED)
This holiday season, Seattle-based Starbucks Corp. has more surprises in store to share with consumers. The company announced the release of Juniper Latte, a new wintery beverage that features a hint of juniper and sage, an evergreen aroma and citrus notes, it says. Juniper Latte is available at participating Starbucks locations in the United States starting today (Nov. 27) for a limited time, while supplies last.
Inspired by a Juniper holiday beverage that debuted last year exclusively at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, it is made with Starbucks signature espresso and steamed milk infused with juniper syrup and capped with velvety foam and a dusting of pine-citrus sugar.
The new beverage joins the lineup of Starbucks holiday espresso beverages like Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brulée Latte, Chestnut Praline Latte, Gingerbread Latte and Eggnog Latte.
Additionally, the company announced that on World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, Starbucks will donate 20 cents for every latte purchased in participating U.S. and Canada Starbucks stores to the Global Fund to help (RED) fight AIDS. For 11 years, Starbucks has been a partner of (RED), raising money and awareness for the fight against HIV and AIDS, contributing more than $14 million to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS with (RED), it says.
