Starbucks is known for trendy coffee drinks with everything from crazy frappucinos to new twists on old favorites. The one trend the coffee chain hasn't jumped on? Oat milk. That is, until now.

The ubiquitous coffee chain has just announced that it will add a new Oatmilk Honey Latte to its winter menu, which will make its debut today, Tuesday, January 7. The new latte — which combines shots of Starbucks Blonde Espresso with a dash of honey, steamed oat milk and a toasted honey topping (yum) — will be available in about 1,300 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin.

Along with the new oat milk latte, Starbucks is also adding two other non-dairy beverages to its winter lineup: The new Almondmilk Honey Flat White will include ristretto shots of Starbucks Blonde Espresso, steamed almond milk and a dash of honey (also yum). The Coconutmilk Latte, meanwhile, will feature shots of Starbucks Blonde Espresso, steamed coconut milk and a Cascara sugar topping said to provide notes of maple and brown sugar (possibly yummiest of all?). Both drinks will be available on the permanent menu at participating Starbucks stores nationwide.

As far as alternative milk options go, you can order soy milk, almond milk and coconut milk in other beverages at Starbucks.

And oat milk? Well, while it has previously been available only at five Starbucks Reserve locations across the U.S. — making its American debut in March 2019 after having been available at European Starbucks locales since January 2018 — its prominent position on the new winter menu seems to be a promising sign for a broadening footprint.

If you happen to be at one of the locations offering the new Oatmilk Honey Latte and you’re hankering for oat milk in another Starbucks beverage, it couldn’t hurt to ask, right? Maybe Starbucks will get the idea that the oat milk fans are thirsting for it to be added more widely and permanently to Starbucks menus.
