Yesterday Starbucks released the new Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew Coffee and I just had to try it.
Normally I like the Narino 70 Cold Brew grande with two pumps of vanilla and soy milk. I had them make my Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew the same way.
I like it. It’s a lot like the straight Narino 70 Cold Brew with a little something else. I believe it’s from the brown sugar and maple.
At home, I’ve been experimenting with coffee recipes using pure maple syrup and a maple syrup aged in a bourbon barrel. I’ve found a few good combinations I like using the pure maple syrup, but haven’t been satisfied using the maple syrup aged in a bourbon barrel.
The syrup tastes really good on its own, and we’re going to try it as a ham baste. Perhaps the next time my daughter is over for alcoholic coffee drink making we’ll find a combination it goes well with coffee too.
The Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew does have a little less caffeine than the Narino 70 Cold Brew at 190mg, but I still have to be careful not to go too far over my daily limit. Luckily, I don’t go every day so I can allow myself to splurge every so often.
Normally I have two drinks during my cafe work afternoons. There’s always the lesser caffeine level shaken teas I like for the second drink.
The good news is that the sodium level in the Cold Foam Cascara Cold Brew is only 30mg…120mg less than my normal macchiato drink. And 170 calories less!
Yep. With those two lower than usual amounts I can certainly splurge and go over my caffeine limit a bit on my once or twice a week cafe workdays.
Don’t forget. Starbucks is closing all its US stores on May 29th for training. It’s a Tuesday. I must remember to not schedule a cafe workday on that day.
