Starbucks Debuts a New Fall Flavor: Apple Crisp Macchiato
Inspired by a freshly baked gooey apple pie.
“Creating an ingredient with a spicy baked apple flavor was crucial to be able to bridge an autumn red apple to espresso,” said Raegan Powell, a senior manager on the Starbucks research and development team, in a statement. “Consider how well a delicious slice of warm apple pie pairs with a cup of coffee or how well the combination of Starbucks roasty signature espresso pairs with warm spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg.”
Available hot or iced, the beverage features layered flavors of apple and brown sugar — just like a freshly baked gooey apple pie. The drink also comes with espresso, steamed milk and a caramelized-spiced apple drizzle, which is made out of apple juice, apple puree, cinnamon and nutmeg.
The Apple Crisp Macchiato is now available as part of Starbucks’s fall menu.
