Wake Up, The Fall Drinks Are Here


Ashley Ramirez, Staff Writer

As the fall is approaching, people are on their toes for the fall menu at Starbucks. The new set of drinks refreshes everyone’s taste buds–from the Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino to the Apple Crisp Oat Milk Macchiato– everyone has a new to-go coffee. Eager customers await their favorite fall drinks and desserts. Collin Noma is a fan of hot chocolate with caramel and cinnamon, as he says it brings him a wonderful sense of comfort.

“It gives me that warm fuzzy feeling and brings back so many good memories,” said Noma.

On the other hand, Kendall Martin enjoys the Brown Sugar Shaken Espresso. She enjoys walking into stores and receiving the beautiful smell of fall drinks.

“Brown sugar is found in many desserts, and the smell of it wraps me in the fall mood,”Martin said. 

Madyson Baynes is a Starbucks barista and gives some insight into customers’ favorites.

“The pumpkin spice latte is a favorite every year. Are we even surprised, it’s a classic,” Baynes said.

“I love when people order it because I’m able to make it consistently good,” Baynes said. Baynes continues to love the fall drinks because of the repetition of orders. 

Even though there are individuals who are in love with the spice everywhere, there are many who dislike the new drinks. Caycee Kopp (12) is an individual who disagrees with the new fall menu. Kopp believes if Starbucks could add more drinks that contain other fall flavors, she would be a fan.

“There’s too much pumpkin, it’s very disappointing. They should expand the menu with new flavors,” Kopp said.

With fall approaching, Starbucks took the first step to bring it closer to everyone’s hearts–and stomachs. The drinks are favorites locally and nationally, and Starbucks continues to make an abundance of profit from them. Cheers to the new Starbucks drinks!
