Yes, yes, we know — fall is almost here and PSLs are life and blah, blah, blah. But Starbucks isn’t quite done releasing (and rereleasing!) fall-appropriate beverages for its die-hard ‘bucks fans.

Making its return for its second year in a row is the crowd-favorite maple-pecan latte, but with a twist. This time around, you can grab the smooth, maple-and-pecan-flavored espresso drink iced. Plus, the iced latte, which comes dusted with an "autumn sugar topping" and is finished off with — wait for it — cold foam.

Starbucks’ newest offering, on the other hand, has us foaming at the mouth — partly because we love anything chocolate-flavored and mostly because it’s a cold-brew drink.

The new cold-foam dark cocoa nitro is inspired by a dark chocolate stout and is topped with a bittersweet cocoa cold foam. 

We’re sold — we’ll take a trenta.

Last but not least, Starbucks has introduced its Passport Series, a line of whole-bean coffees perfect for those who would rather brew at home.

Available for a limited time, the first installment of the Passport Series includes coffee from Central America. They are: Guatemala Casi Cielo (a medium roast with lemon notes and a cocoa finish), Honduras Marcala (a caramel-and-chocolate-flavored dark roast) and Costa Rica Tarrazú (a blond roast, also with citrus notes).

By now, you’re probably punching in your order on the Starbucks app and halfway out the door, but wait!
