New Drink Alert!

Starbucks has unveiled the new Juniper Flat White that's being released today in Canada!

It will have the same great woodsy taste of the Juniper Latte but with a little twist. Strong espresso paired with Juniper and Sage to offer a fresh, wintery flavor. Don't be fooled though the flat white is not a carbon copy of the Juniper Latte.

Don't believe me? Well believe science! The Juniper Latte combines rich espresso with a thin layer of foam to allow for a more subtle flavor whereas due to the Ristretto espresso used in the Flat White and the micro-foam you can experience a light, smooth yet bold taste. 

Ristretto espresso refers to a "restricted" shot due to the fact that the barista pulls the first portion of the full-length espresso shot, meaning that less water is pulled through the ground beans, giving a sweeter, richer and more full-bodied flavor. 

The new Juniper Flat White is meant for coffee drinkers that prefer a more coffee forward taste with a subtle hint of Juniper and Sage.

Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Cheers,

Alfred Drinking Coffee
