When Starbucks® offers you a chance to try out all of their NEW Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods you not only jump at the chance but you do a little happy dance… at least that is what I did! I love Starbucks® + Lattes + At-Home with the ease of my Keurig? Yes PLEASE! So prepare to FALL in LOVE with these flavorful at-home lattes just like I did!
Maybe it’s just the cozy fall weather and the love of snuggling up with a good hot beverage and a book that makes me love my Keurig and the fact that I can now get a Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® at home, or maybe it’s just my lazy side kicking in, but I have been fully won over by this two-step beverage perfection. Today, as I ready my home for Hurricane Matthew I am even more thankful for Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® brewing abilities. The roads may be closed but I’ve got my coffee ready. Why I never thought of adding this to our emergency supplies I have no idea! 😉 Kidding…kind of!
Starbucks® sent me all three flavors to test out. My at-home lattes included: Mocha, Vanilla and Carmel. I have always been a Mocha Latte girl but the Carmel really won me over. I don’t what it is about the velvety smooth richness of creamy carmel but I am digging it. Maybe it’s the fact it reminds me of all things fall and I love this season of fall festivals, not-so-spooky nights, Thanksgiving, hayrides and apple picking… The Carmel brought me there.
Starbucks® prides themselves in the art of perfecting the latte and their Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods are no exception. This perfection comes from two key, but very vital components – the espresso and the milk. When you get these two components right… a beverage that can easily be the cherry on top of your day!
The milk is Step 1 of this process. You add the flavor packet that is made from milk, and no artificial flavors to begin. Step 2 is to brew the Starbucks® Caffe Blend K-Cup® pod in your Keurig® brewer and stir to enjoy the beverage.
Did you know that the second the brew starts the crema breaks down and the wonderful volatile compounds that make the espresso taste so delicious can be lost. But with this genius 2 Step process you have already begun adding the milk! Blending at the perfect time for your at-home latte!
Everything you need to set up your own beverage station for yourself (or throwing a party)!
At-Home Lattes can be found at your local grocery store!
The process is a no-brainer and as easy as hitting a button and using a spoon but I have included pictures in case you were worried it might be complicated.
Along with these delicious Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® pods, I wanted to share these simple yet elegant drink tags. They are perfect for households with multiple coffee drinkers or for my favorite, hosting a party! I threw a Coffee & Cocoa party last year that was so much fun! I really recommend putting one together. They are easy, fun and delicious.
You can use the leaves for drink tags and make extra for easy decor at your beverage station. They are also great table setting additions.
Add a chalkboard tag to write names and hot glue together.
Aren’t those Starbucks® Caffè at-home lattes just beautiful? Creamy, piping hot and in less than a minute. Dreams really do come true! What’s your favorite fall flavor??
