The pumpkin spice latte better watch its back.
For the first time in four years, Starbucks has launched a new fall drink: a toasted graham latte that officially hit stores today.
The latest addition to the growing Starbucks menu starts with graham cracker–steeped milk that's reminiscent of the cereal milk served at "Masterchef" judge Christina Tosi's Milk Bar. Baristas steam up the cookie-infused milk and add it to a shot of espresso with a sprinkle of cinnamon graham crumbles on top. The resulting brew is warm and screams autumn without the cloying sweetness of the pumpkin spice latte, so the flavor of the coffee still shines through.
The latte isn't the only new item that Starbucks will debut today — to celebrate the start of fall, cups with colorful illustrations of leaves and pinecones are also rolling out nationwide.
Java junkies can find the new sipper at a nearby shop, or use the just-launched "Mobile Pay & Order" feature in the Starbucks app to skip the lines and order the drink for pick-up.
