If you are nuts, or like nuts (ha!), you need to try a Starbucks Pistachio Latte. One of the most popular lattes of 2021 has made its return to this year’s Starbucks Winter menu (2022).
Beginning January 4th, 2022 you can order a pistachio latte from your local Starbucks barista. We got our hands on this latte (for nut lovers alike), and here is our Starbucks Pistachio Latte Review. We even captured a bag of Pistachios to directly compare flavors!
Starbucks Pistachio Latte Review
If you never had a Starbucks Pistachio Latte, you may be skeptical. In our opinion, most nut-infused coffee always seems to taste similar to hazelnut.
NOT the Pistachio Latte!
On the first sip, you are immediately greeted with the salted brown butter topping followed by a deep punch of pistachios. And yes, the same flavor in the bag. Espresso embodies the nut taste to complement a smooth coffee-like finish. As you continue to drink your latte, the pistachios flavor levels out and espresso takes over.
Pistachio Latte Essentials
- Available in both hot and iced in traditional Starbucks cup sizes.
- A grande size comes with 2 shots of espresso and 4 pumps of pistachio sauce.
- Latte contains 320 calories, 45 grams of sugar, and 9 grams of fat (grande size).
- Pairs nicely with a Ham & Swiss on a Baguette for lunch.
Our experiment and taste test was not cheap as a bag of pistachios retail for about $9. The Starbucks Pistachio latte came in at $5.25 for the grande size and will most likely vary in cost based on your location. Have you tried the Starbucks Pistachio latte?
