Coconuts and their flavor are mainly synonymous with the summer breeze. So, does Starbucks have coconut syrup that can recreate this feeling? Read on to find out more.
I’ve been in love with Starbucks seasonal drinks, especially those available around Christmas. Starbucks added the Starbucks Toasted Coconut Cold Brew to their menu, and I felt they had perfectly captured spring and summery coastal vibes all in one drink. The drink contains the Nariño 70 Cold Brew sweetened with toasted coconut syrup and finished with a splash of coconut milk to create an attractive marbling effect around the drink. The taste, smooth, creamy flavor, and look get me excited each time.
The questions about the availability of coconut syrup at Starbucks are founded. It is not uncommon to ask for a coconut syrup pump, and the barista or Starbucks app tells you it’s unavailable. While Starbucks does have coconut syrup, the drinks requiring coconut syrup as seasonal, and by extension, so is the syrup. You can only find the syrup during the spring and summer months while stocks last.
What brand of Coconut syrup does Starbucks use?
Starbucks uses their brand of Starbucks coconut syrup created by their beverage development team, which Fontana then produces for the coffee company.

The drink is inspired by jalao, a treat native to the Dominican Republic made using coconut shavings and honey.
