The Newest Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew

I have the fun job of developing new Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew creations. This means I get to spend most of my day sipping all kinds of delicious drinks. Dream job, right? I think so!

This year we created Starbucks VIA® Peppermint Mocha. The biggest challenge was getting the balance of coffee, cocoa, and peppermint just right.  To do this, we used our high quality instant and microground coffee, cocoa powder and the perfect peppermint flavor.

In fact, we probably sipped our way through 25 or more natural mint flavors until we finally landed on that sweet, crisp, candy cane taste that makes everyone think back to the holidays as a kid.

For me, this beverage takes me to winter visits at my grandmother’s house, where there was a skating pond right across the street. After a few hours of ice skating, we’d rush inside the kitchen to find steaming mugs of hot cocoa. Last Saturday, I made a cup, put on some holiday tunes and decorated my mantle with evergreen, pinecones and ornaments. The creamy, sweet taste and cool peppermint finish definitely gets you in the mood to deck the halls!

I hope you enjoy our newest Starbucks VIA® flavored coffee, available now for a limited time in participating Starbucks stores online store) and look for it where you buy groceries!

The Peppermint Mocha VIA is by far the best VIA, imo. different category from the straight coffees of course, (Italian roast, Tribute, Christmas)  but really have made a lot of use out of this one.  Love it!
