Starbucks is pouring two new Bicerin beverages alongside “Oatmilk” in five select Starbucks Reserve locations in the US.
Bicerin, a traditional hot drink native to Turin, Italy, is made with espresso, drinking chocolate, and whole milk served layered in a small rounded glass.
Starbucks is offering two versions of Bicerin – Chocolate and Pistachio.
As per Starbucks, Chocolate Bicerin starts with a “pour of chocolate sauce on the bottom of the glass topped with a velvety cold foam crema made with nonfat milk, the freshly-pulled espresso is poured over the top creating a frothy float of espresso between the chocolate and crema. It’s both sippable and spoonable.”
Meanwhile, Pistachio Bicerin features adds a pistachio-flavored crema, for a nutty, slightly savory flavor.
Additionally, select Starbucks Reserve locations in the US will offer Oatmilk as its newest non-dairy milk option.
Starbucks locations in Europe have been offering oatmilk since January 2018. This is the first time it has been offered in US Starbucks locations.
You can find the new Bicerin beverages alongside Oatmilk in the Starbucks Reserve Roasteries in Seattle and New York, the Reserve Store inside the Seattle Starbucks headquarters, as well as the Reserve Bars in Seattle and San Francisco. Oatmilk will also be available at three standalone Princi bakeries in Seattle, Chicago and New York.
According to Wikipedia, oat milk is a type of plant milk derived from whole oat grains by soaking the plant material to extract its nutrients. It has a creamy texture and a characteristically oatmeal-like flavor, although it is sold commercially in a variety of flavors.
