Would You Try Tim Hortons' New Spicy Buffalo Latte?
We’re in the season of fall-themed lattes, and there’s a lot of pumpkin, cinnamon and vanilla happening — but have you ever wished someone would spice things up a bit?
Well, Tim Horton’s is — literally. The Canadian chain, which also has 94 locations in the U.S., has launched a latte topped with Buffalo sauce seasoning.
Unfortunately, there’s only one place you can get this latte. Buffalo, New York, naturally.
These spicy new lattes even require special machinery, and the Tim Horton's Buffalo locations were also the first to try out the company's new espresso machines. The fancy new espresso machines, "where milk is steamed until frothy and the espresso is more potent than the previously tepid mix," rolled out last month according to the Buffalo News. This stronger, bolder coffee will be the base for the Buffalo latte, which is made from freshly brewed espresso, steamed milk, mocha and bold Buffalo sauce flavor. The latte is then topped with whipped topping and a dusting of zesty Buffalo seasoning.
"The unlikely pairing of sweet mocha and tangy Buffalo sauce come together to create an unexpectedly delicious sweet and spicy treat we hope our guests will enjoy," said Stephen Goldstein, the chain's U.S. president, in a press release.
If going spicy with your coffee isn’t what you want, they will still have all their traditional flavors like mocha, pumpkin and vanilla.
