The Golden Latte captures a current food trend focusing on superfoods. Featuring turmeric, honey and ginger, the flavors are both bold and beneficial. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties beyond its bold golden color. This latte, available hot or iced, is the perfect start to the day or a lovely break in the afternoon.

For a bolder option, consider the Golden Tonic. Building on similar ingredients from the Golden Latte, the Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical gets an additional boost from the bright yuzu. That nuanced citrus flavor pairs perfectly with the other flavors.

The new Peet’s Coffee Golden Late and the Golden Tonic are available through March 6, 2021.


To start 2021, Starbucks launched several new menu items. While there are many food choices to pair with these best new coffees, the beverages are tasty on their own.

Starbucks Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew continues the trend for plant-based food. While almondmilk has become a popular milk option, this cold brew coffee gets a burst of sweetness and flavor from the honey. It is a touch sweet without becoming overpowering.

Inspired by the Starbucks Roastery, the Starbucks Pistachio Latte is a wonderful addition to the winter menu. The pistachio flavor offers a nutty, salty and sweet layer to the traditional latte. It is definitely worth making a special trip.


While many people run to Dunkin for the donuts, the Dunkin coffee has always ranked as a top coffee choice. Whether you enjoy coffee and a doughnut or one of the new breakfast sandwiches, these coffees will keep you fueled all day long.

The Dunkin Extra Charged Coffee is big caffeine boost. With 20% more caffeine, it is the energy boost that many people crave on a cold winter day. The coffee offers the same Dunkin taste, just with some extra caffeine.

The Dunkin Midnight is a bold, robust coffee. Considered the darkest roast available by Dunkin, the cocoa flavor entices, and the dark finish leaves you wanting more. For true coffee lovers, this coffee is a must try.

Dutch Bros

The Cold Brew Kicker is the newest coffee on the brand’s menu. Considered the coffee brand that offers “killer coffee,” this cold brew coffee is a great way to start the day. Even consider getting it “toasted.” That boost is perfection when there is a little chill in the air.
