Emerging from the post-holiday hustle, Peet's Coffee replaces those pesky winter blues and turn them into golden hues with the debut of their new Winter Menu including the return of the Golden Caffè Latte. 

The brand's coffee-first seasonal selection is designed to elevate the coffee experience for its loyal customers. Whether they’re a devoted Espresso enthusiast or a fan of the ever-popular Golden Caffè Latte, Peet's has something special brewing for them.

"We've navigated the realms of Pumpkin Spice and Peppermint Mocha seasons," noted Jessica Buttimer, VP of Brand at Peet's Coffee. "Now, we enter what we consider Coffee Season."

The Golden Caffè Latte will not only be on the seasonal menu, but it will now find a permanent home on the Peet's menu. The drink combines Espresso Forté with perfectly steamed milk and a syrup with notes of honey, turmeric and ginger. 

Other classic items showcased on the Winter Menu include: 

• Espresso: A single shot of Espresso Forté delivers rich layers of flavor and perfect crema. Opening notes of hazelnut are followed by notes of caramel and citrus zest. 

• Traditional Cappuccino: A single shot of Espresso Forté gets a refreshing dose of microfoam for the perfect espresso to milk proportion—all served in a 6 oz. cup. 

• Caffè Macchiato: Simply satisfying, their Caffè Macchiato features a ristretto (short shot) marked with a dash of perfectly steamed milk and foam. 

• Golden Caffè Latte: The Golden Caffè Latte pairs Espresso Forté with perfectly steamed milk and a syrup with notes of turmeric, honey, and ginger. 

• Caffè Cortado: Invented in Spain, "Cortado" means "cut" in Spanish. Here at Peet's, they cut a shot of bold espresso with an equal amount of velvety steamed milk.

"At Peet's, our skilled beverage team meticulously curates coffees infused with distinctive character, featuring memorable flavors that encapsulate the essence of each season," shared Buttimer. "With notes of turmeric and ginger in the Golden Caffè Latte, Peetniks will feel empowered to take on the fresh beginnings of a new year."

The Winter Menu will also feature the return of another favorite, Ethiopian Super Natural. Beloved by customers for more than 20 years, this is an extraordinary blend known for distinctive notes of wild blueberries and white flower that are balanced with a candied citron sweetness. This unique Peet's staple comes from hand-selected, ripe coffee cherries that are meticulously laid in a single layer to naturally dry in Ethiopia under the East African sun. When the heat reaches its peak, the coffee beans are shaded for two weeks and then monitored throughout the day to allow the sun's rays to bring out the full flavor as it dries.
