“No beverage better demonstrates this level of craftsmanship than our signature four-layered Macchiato, and we know customers will love this new member of our espresso beverage family,” said Cliff Burrows, Starbucks’ president.
Starbucks recently announced that it will be adding a hazelnut macchiato to its core lineup, making this the first time in 16 years they will be adding a new drink permanently to their menu. Starbucks made this decision after studies showed that hazelnut was the second most popular drink flavor after vanilla.
Hazelnut has definitely shown itself to be one of the most beloved flavors of today. Nutella is celebrated with a world holiday, KitKat just released a hazelnut cream bar, and even Pinkberry released a chocolate hazelnut frozen yogurt last summer.
The new tall macchiato will start at $3.35 and a grande will run $4.05.
