When Starbucks served its very first espresso beverages in 1984, the Caffè Latte was a beverage unfamiliar to most Americans. But it quickly became a customer favorite with its rich espresso balanced with steamed milk and a light topping of foam.

Now Starbucks is bringing customers a new way to enjoy the beverage and Starbucks high-quality arabica coffee with its new ready-to-drink Starbucks Iced Latte, available in Salted Caramel Mocha for a limited time. This is the first Starbucks single-serve ready-to-drink iced latte. It features cocoa and toffee notes intertwined with hints of sea salt, bold espresso and creamy milk. The Salted Caramel Mocha flavor is inspired by the seasonal customer favorite, the handcrafted Starbucks Salted Caramel Mocha served at Starbucks stores.  The new Starbucks Iced Latte Salted Caramel Mocha begins shipping to grocery retailers nationwide starting today.  Starbucks Iced Latte will roll-out in other delicious limited-time flavors throughout the year.

Caffè Latte at Home

Starbucks also makes it easy to enjoy smooth and creamy Caffè Latte at home with K–Cup pods, Caffè Latte Verismo pods and Starbucks VIA Instant. Available in select Starbucks stores, grocery and online.

Caffè Latte K–Cup pods: The sweet creaminess of dairy and flavor complement 100 percent arabica coffee in our Caffè Latte K-Cup pods. Available in Caramel, Vanilla, and Mocha.
