Starbucks' Just Announced An All New At-Home Holiday Coffee Flavor

The news is in and pumpkin spice-flavored coffee is out. Starbucks has once again proved the company is a proud member of the "it's never too early to celebrate Christmas" club. Starbies fans will still have to wait for the official release of the chain's 2022 in-store holiday menu. The coffee giant has revealed in a press release that starting October 18, this year's at-home Christmas coffee selection will be available nationwide. And the release of this year's holiday coffee lineup is actually a little late compared to 2021's October 12 debut date (per Starbucks). But there may be a good reason for the seemingly delayed arrival of Starbucks' holiday flavors to your local grocery store.

Of course, you can expect to see Starbucks' revered mocha peppermint flavor and iconic holiday blend in the coffee aisle throughout the holiday season. But the elves in Starbucks' workshop have been busy whipping up an all-new home holiday treat. Here's everything you need to know about Starbucks' returning holiday coffees and the new flavor it's gifting fans for Christmas this year.

Gingerbread houses were the inspo behind Starbucks' new holiday flavor

So what is the new coffee variety competing with the holiday blend's old-fashioned maple and herb flavor and peppermint mocha's bright chocolate and mint taste? Well, if you have fond memories of baking and decorating gingerbread cookies during the Christmas season, the new edition to Starbucks' holiday home line will fill you with tidings of comfort and joy. According to the company's press release, Starbucks' new holiday gingerbread coffee variety is defined by cinnamon and clove flavor. The festive coffee's base is a light blend that reportedly gives it a freshly-baked cookie fluffiness.

All three of Starbucks' at-home holiday flavors will be sold as $11.99 11-ounce and $15.49 17-ounce ground coffee bags. The holiday blends will also come in K-Cup pods for $11.99 per 10-count and $22.99 per 22-count. However, peppermint mocha will be the only flavor sold in ready-to-drink form, and a 14-ounce iced espresso peppermint mocha will go for $2.34. While Starbucks has not officially announced when it will pull the holiday flavors from shelves, we at least know you'll be able to sip on a cup of gingerbread coffee on Christmas Day.
