It’s Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte season! And riding on the coattails of the popular beverage is the new Chile Mocha.
The beverage is made with espresso and steamed milk infused with a cocoa and cinnamon powder, topped with a dollop of whipped cream and finished with a sprinkle of Chile Mocha topping, consisting of ancho and cayenne chile pepper, cinnamon, paprika, sugar and a touch of sea salt. It’s also available as a Frappuccino or coffee-free as hot chocolate.
It’s available at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada.
