The fall season is upon us and I don’t know about you but I absolutely love curling up with a delicious cup of coffee on a chilly fall morning. Costco has just started selling the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Coffee Enhancer and I decided I needed to try it and review it!

I’ve reviewed a bunch of Starbucks products from Costco on Costcuisine. The Starbucks Winter Blend Coffee, Starbucks Fall Blend Coffee and Costco Starbucks Classic Hot Cocoa.

Location in Store

You can find the coffee enhancer at Costco in the refrigerated aisle by the juices and cold brew coffee. It’s not in the cold dairy room. The item number is 1548393.

Taste

This is sooooo sweet! It’s delicious and extremely creamy. I added one tablespoon to my coffee and it really added a ton of sweet, creamy caramel flavor. It turns your coffee into a dessert-like beverage!

If you don’t drink coffee you could add the caramel macchiato enhancer to steamed milk. I also think this would taste so good in cold brew. For a special brunch treat you could add a splash of Baileys along with this to your coffee!

Does this make your coffee taste like a caramel macchiato from Starbucks? Not really to be honest, it’s a coffee creamer and doesn’t replace going to buy a Starbucks Caramel Macchiato.

Cost

I paid only $9..99 Canadian for this massive 1.72 liter bottle, which is a really good deal! This coffee enhancer would be ideal for sharing in an office full of coffee drinkers!

Convenience

There’s two of us in the house and we both drink coffee but 1.72 liters of coffee enhancer is way too much for us to be able to drink in 14 days. The best before date on the bottle is about six months from the date we purchased it at Costco if unopened. However it’s recommended you consume it within 14 days of opening.

This is impossible for us!

Although the bottle doesn’t recommend freezing, one idea is freezing ice cubes of coffee enhancer in a ice cube tray. Then take the ice cubes out when needed. One ice cube might last a few days, we do this with cream and we put the ice cube in a glass and cover it with plastic wrap and use it up within a day or two.

One tablespoon is 40 calories, one and a half grams of fat, six grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre, six grams of sugar, five milligrams of sodium and point four grams of protein. I measured one tablespoon and added it to my coffee but if I was pouring it freely I probably would have poured at least two tablespoons or more in my coffee.

Ingredients

The first ingredient is sugar, which doesn’t surprise me because the coffee enhancer tastes really sweet! There’s milk and cream as well as soy oil. I’m not sure why the soy oil is necessary but it’s there.

Cost: 8/10

  1. Tried it, it’s good… however I agree, it’s not as great as a caramel macchiato at an actual SB, but is nice to have at home. I wouldn’t buy it all the time due to the higher calorie/sugar content. We were hoping they would have the SB pumpkin spice one to try, but haven’t seen Costco carry it (yet?).
    Thanks as always for reviewing!

  2. Great review! I love that you include (and are honest about) nutritional content. Yes, I agree that you would need at least two T. to make it creamy and delicious.
    Also, thank you for stating the exact location of the product. I get very frustrated hunting for one item. Going up and down every possible aisle a few times!

  3. Great review, I love this product. Never bought the Costco size. Only ever buy the smaller ones from Superstore. Cinnamon Dolce and caramel macc. Not sure why you buy buy 5hat big of a jug. They sell smaller ones which are just over 800 ml. About 7 bucks. So figure Costco has the better deal.
