The new sweet beverages, which use Monin’s Honey syrup, include the honey macchiato, honey cortado, and honey matcha tea latte, which will all be available through May 9. According to the company, the addition of the organic ingredient was due to consumer growth and interest in artisanal products.
“More and more we have seen [honey] paired with a variety of foods. With coffee, its unique and full-bodied flavor profile draws out the complex tonalities of our beans to produce a harmonious cup,” Patrick Main, senior research and development manager of Peet’s Coffee, said in a statement.
Peet’s has also introduced its limited edition 2017 Anniversary Blend, which features malt and melon flavors from three single-origins including Colombia, Rwanda, and Papua New Guinea.
This year, the blend supports Coffee Kids, a youth training and mentorship program in Colombia that connects with young entrepreneurs in coffee-growing communities. Peet’s will donate to Coffee Kids through its Drink a Great Cup, Do a Great Thing program by donating 25 cents of every purchase, contributing up to $50,000.
The blend is now available online, at participating Peet’s store locations, and grocery stores nationwide.
