Dreaming of Mocha and Caramel

You might guess this already, but since I’m posting a blog here, I should confess it anyway: I love coffee.

I love it in all its forms – pure coffee poured straight and black from the brewer, frothy espresso made delicious with foam, even the sweet delicious coffee buried in the heart of foods like tiramisu and espresso brownies.

This week, I’ve found a whole new way to indulge my love for coffee with the introduction of Starbucks VIA® Flavored Coffees. There are four flavors: Mocha, Vanilla, Caramel and Cinnamon Spice, and they showcase coffee in a whole new way. They take the high-quality arabica coffees that are the core of all my favorite beverages and dress them up with delicious, complementary flavors and a touch of sweetness. Perfection. And did I mention that you can make each treat in an instant wherever you have hot water or milk? No waiting required for this dream to come true.

Join me and indulge your own love of coffee. My favorite flavor is Mocha and lately, I’ve been enjoying it made in a cup of hot, steaming milk. (A tip: just heat the milk in the microwave for a couple of minutes, then add in your flavor of choice – it’s quick and really enhances all the flavors!).

Oh, do you want to know something else truly remarkable? All the flavors are natural. No artificial or unpronounceable ingredients – just perfectly roasted coffee, natural flavors and cane sugar. Simple. Delicious. And a testament to our commitment to quality. Enjoy!

    Wow - thanks for the heads-up. I'll have to check out the new VIA flavors on my next trip to Starbucks. Now I'M dreaming of a Mocha and Caramel mix with steamed milk. I'll have to get a bigger cup - but I'm willing to make the sacrifice. :)

    I will be trying the Vanilla flavor this weekend, and will try making it with hot milk. Sounds wonderful!

    If these things eventually come in decaf hazelnut, then you've just pretty much answered all my coffee needs forever. Dare I hope?

    Is there any chance they might bring back the Caramel Brulee? Loved that!

    Us decaf drinkers are a lot more limited. Would love to try some of the new flavors but, sadly they don't come in decaf.

    Im a mocha latte fan, so thought I would like the Mocha flavored Via. However, it was way too sweet for my taste. Maybe adding the milk would help...
