The Tiramisu Test

A standout customer suggestion has intrigued and inspired us so much that we’re asking latte lovers in St. Louis and Jacksonville to test it. It’s another scrumptious dessert reinvented into a handcrafted drinkable delicacy.

The new Tiramisu Latte combines our signature espresso with hints of creamy mascarpone flavor and a delicate dusting of rich cocoa espresso powder. Enjoy it warm, iced, or as a Frappuccino® blended beverage.

If you’re in St. Louis or Jacksonville this winter, try it and tell us what you think.

Inspired by your ideas:

Tiramisu!

Please please please please offer this in wide release. I still wished you'd make the caramel brûlée available all the time.

This sounds so fantastic!!!  So much better than the Caramel Flan!  I'm not close to either of your test areas...so you'll just have to roll it out nationwide! :)

St. Louis and Jacksonville only?!! Not fair! How about us in the Bayarea (ca-san jose)??

Tiramisu Latte sounds wonderful! More Starbucks International hit flavors coming to the U.S. is more than welcome.

But please start including pictures of the Frappuccino versions for promotional materials. Especially for markets like Texas because otherwise people will forget the drink even exist in Frappuccino.

I tried it in St. Louis, so great! I didn't realize it was only a testing city, but I think it would do great nation wide!

I live in Jacksonville. I was fortunate enough to purchase the tumbler for the limited time in December that allows me to get a free hand crafted beverage every day free for the month of January 2014. I have gotten the tiramisu latte everyday since it has come out. I'm addicted to it's intense coffee flavor and chocolate dusting on top! It's amazing!! I think it would be a hit everywhere.

Tiramisu is my favorite dessert and now a latte... I've died and gone to Heaven! Or I could if it was available in the Central Florida area!! Hurry please!!

The Tiramisu latte is wonderful - I tend to add syrups to my beverages, but I enjoyed the Tiramisu latte in its natural form (read: delicious).  I have my usual/favorite drinks, and so I might surprise my favorite local Starbucks partners by changing it up and ordering this in Frapp form!

I'm curious as to what, if any, food item others would pair with this.

Tiramisu happens to be my favorite dessert.  I would LOVE it if you could extend this to the San Jose (South Bay) area.  Looks like we've already started a line in San Jose.  I'll be behind Bee808.

SOOO disappointed to find out the test area was Jacksonville FL, and not Jacksonville IL which is only a 10 minute ride.  Tiramisu, I'll miss you!

IT'S SOOOOO GOOD!!! Definitely add it to your menu everywhere! It has just the right amount of sweetness, and the syrup flavor isn't overpowering. I usually am very picky about my flavorings in coffee, but this one was realllllly good :)

I just tried this out of intrigue as I usually stick with an iced coffee or carmel machiato. Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts and I could not have been more disappointed to have purchased this drink after trying it. It tasted like a normal latte and had neither a creamy marscapone flavor or was chocolaty. $5 for a coffee that I will never get back. Next time I'll stick with my normal drink.

I had an idea for tiramisu latte long ago, but I thought it was only a dream.  I would order one in a heartbeat.

...and while I like this idea, I want the honey latte back (from the 2007-2008 season).  

That said, I want to try this - bring it to the San Jose area for testing too!

1/21/2014 12:26 PM

I wasn't aware it was a test, but "tested" it a couple weeks back and loved it. Definitely one to keep on the board :)

OMG, this needs to happen in San Diego right now!  Tiramisu is my favorite dessert, so having that flavor with my coffee would be amazing!  

And while we're at it, make the caramel brulee latte a year round drink!  That is my favorite, and it shouldn't be "seasonal"!

I have been going to Starbucks for YEARS and have tried almost every flavored latte that they've offered. I just happened to be fortunate enough to be in Jacksonville this week and have had the Tiramasu Latte. OH. MY. GOD. It is the BEST I've ever had. AND apparently the rest of Jacksonville agrees, because the two locations I went to today were out of the Tiramasu syrup!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make this a staple!

Love this Tiramisu drink!! I had it as a

Frappachino the first time and I died and went to heaven!! I'm not big on whip cream ( I know I'm un-American) and I just had Carmel sauce on top.. But this drink is so good!! I did have it in brewed coffee today and it was also very good! I do drink most of my drinks as Frapps though.. But either way it was very good and I hope Starbucks keeps this flavor! I am in St. Louis.

I tried both the Tiramisu and the Caramel Flan and have to say the Tiramisu did not impress me. I loved they Caramel Brûlée and wish that would come back. So far, sounds like Tiramisu is a great concept but overrated.

I have to say, I rarely get something than my usual soy mocha latte, but I tried this tiramisu latte one afternoon and it's delicious.

I'm assuming its going to be a limited run, so for now, this is my new 'usual'.

ambergini

Tried the tiramisu latte on a whim 3 weeks ago and I'm hooked!  I hope this earns a permanent spot on the menu as it has become my new go-to drink!

I tried the tiramisu coffee earlier this week and was delightfully surprised! I'm more of a cappuccino type of girl... Not a big fan of flavored stuff, but found the tiramisu coffee to be great! Will you sell the syrup too?

I went to Jacksonville on the weekend of January 17-19th and I stopped by one of the Starbucks at rivercity station in North of Jacksonville. I ordered Tiramisu Latte for the first time and I LOVE IT ! I am currently living in Atlanta and was disappointed that Atlanta area does not have Tiramisu so I would like to have it here so I can enjoy the taste of warm Tiramisu Latte ! Please let Atlanta have some !!!! Thanks!

I tried the tiramisu latte this winter(outside of Jacksonville) let me first say that I love tiramisu when it's made right, but I didn't love the drink. I think it was a great idea, but definitely needed some more work done on the flavor. Love the pumpkin spice, gingerbread and caramel creme brulee...:-) need more sugar free options too!

It was by pure chance that we happened upon the tiramisu latte/frapps in Jacksonville.  We were traveling and made a stop to get coffee.  I was very excited to see this new flavor since tiramisu is my favorite dessert.  I did not realize at the time this was a test flavor.  I have been looking all over for it and now know why I cannot find it.  Will be stopping again in Jacksonville on our way home for another drink.  Please keep this flavor and share it all over!  It is awesome
