Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew, Taste Test and Review

As a coffee enthusiast, I recently decided to try out the new Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew. I’m Thomas Smith, and I took it upon myself to give this beverage a shot and see how it compares to other cold brew coffees.

In this blog post, I’ll be sharing my impressions of the drink after consuming about half of it. From its smell to its taste, I’ve got you covered on what you can expect when trying the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew for yourself.

The Aroma

The first thing that struck me about this drink was its aroma. When I got the cold brew and put it in my car, it immediately filled the air with a delicious smell reminiscent of a cinnamon roll.

The scent was strong enough to make me excited about trying the drink, and I couldn’t wait to taste whether the flavor lived up to the fantastic smell.

The Texture

One unique aspect of the Starbucks Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew is the cream topping. Its consistency is somewhat like a cool whip, which is significantly different from the typical whipped cream you would find on other coffee beverages.

This cream doesn’t just sit on top and dissolve into the coffee; it stays separate, allowing you to get a bit of it with each sip, adding an extra layer of flavor to the drink just as in the chocolate cream cold brew and macadamia cream. The combination of the cold brew coffee and the cinnamon-flavored cream creates a truly unique and refreshing beverage.

The Taste

Upon tasting the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew, I found that the flavor was subtler than I had expected based on the smell. While there’s a background note of cinnamon, it isn’t overwhelmingly sweet or caramelly. This gives the cold brew a balanced yet nuanced taste that doesn’t overpower your taste buds.

The cold foam and mild cinnamon flavor make for a refreshing and delicious drink, perfect for summer. While I had anticipated a stronger caramel/cinnamon taste based on the aroma, I appreciated the subtlety, which allowed the cinnamon and cold foam components to shine.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I highly recommend trying Starbucks’ Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew. Its delightful aroma, unique texture, and subtle yet refreshing taste make for a fantastic summer beverage.

If you’re a fan of cold brew coffee but are looking for a twist on the classic drink, give this one a try – I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
