Starbucks Canada responds to customers and adds Coconut Milk
September 11, 2015
After thousands of MyStarbucksIdea.com votes, Tweets and barista requests, Starbucks has added coconut milk to their milk alternative options. Coconut milk has been the second-most coffee-affiliated requested item on the feedback website. A few years ago I would have requested it too.
After careful research and development, Starbucks Global R&D team developed a rich, creamy coconut milk that complements Starbucks® hot, iced and Frappuccino® blended beverages. First launched in U.S. Starbucks locations in February 2015, Starbucks® Single Origin Sumatra Coconut Milk is certified vegan and made from single-origin coconuts from the tropical Indonesian island of Sumatra. With the addition of Coconut Milk, customers have numerous options including soy milk, 2%, non-fat, whole milk, half-and-half and in some areas lactose-free milk, adding to the more than 170,000 ways to customize Starbucks® beverages in stores.
