Featuring 15 different beverages made with real pumpkin puree like the new Pumpkin Espresso Shaker and the return of the Pumpkin Iced Crafted Press
Minneapolis, MN – Aug. 17, 2023 – Caribou Coffee, a global premium coffeehouse and Panera Brands company, is excited to announce one of the most highly anticipated flavors of the season with the return of pumpkin. Starting Thursday, August 24, guests can pick their perfect pumpkin drink with an extensive menu of 15 different handcrafted beverages to choose from. From the newest addition to our Espresso Shaker line up, the new Pumpkin Espresso Shaker to the Pumpkin Iced Crafted Press, to the guest-favorite Pumpkin White Mocha, there are endless options to fill your cup.
After the successful launch of Caribou Coffee’s Espresso Shakers with Oatmilk, previously announced this past March, the new Pumpkin Espresso Shaker is the latest to join three other flavors including caramel, vanilla and white chocolate. Each Espresso Shaker combines espresso with real pumpkin purée, caramel, vanilla flavor, or white chocolate. The instant chilling during shaking speeds up dilution and results in a smoother, more balanced flavor and beverage.
Caribou Coffee is committed to serving customers quality products that they can feel good about even when indulging in seasonal offerings. Like all handcrafted beverages at Caribou, each delicious drink on the fall menu lineup is made using only premium ingredients like real pumpkin purée and is made without any artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.
“Pumpkin is one of the most highly anticipated seasonal flavors in the industry and we’re ecstatic to welcome guests to fall with our extensive pumpkin menu,” said Matt Reiter, senior vice president of product and procurement. “With a wide variety of menu items and endless customizations, there is something for everyone to enjoy this fall season whether they want their pumpkin shaken, iced, blended, hot or with nitro cold press.”
