Starbucks is brewing up new options for its customers. Beginning in September, the coffee giant will add almond milk to its list of non-diary options, which already includes soy and coconut milk, Grub Street reports.
The rollout will begin in two stages throughout the country: Stores in New York, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, and the Mid-Atlantic will start to see the dairy alternative on September 6, while everywhere else in the country will see almond milk on the menu by the end of the month.
It's an option that customers will likely go nuts for: Over the last five years, almond milk was one of the most requested menu items on My Starbucks Idea, the company’s crowdsourcing customer and barista suggestion platform.
Starbucks’ almond milk—described by the company as having “light almond notes without any added flavoring”—will cost an additional $.60 and can be used in a majority of the coffee company’s hot and cold beverages, as well as in all blended Frappuccinos.
“We created our own almond milk recipe to complement our hot, iced, and Frappuccino blended beverages,” Yoke Wong, Starbucks manager of beverage research and development, said. “It was designed so that when steamed, it creates a rich foam for hot beverages and is delicious and creamy when served in cold beverages.”
