Cheers to the Season That Brings Us All Together
The leaves turn, and the days shorten, providing just the excuse needed to cozy up with the people and things that warm the heart—most. This special time is one we commemorate each year with something small but meaningful: The return of the red cups! Over the last 18-years, we’ve been amazed with how our customers have creatively captured what the return of the red cups means to them. With that, we invite you to take part in an Instagram contest celebrating the return of the red cups . The five photos we like most will each be awarded a Starbucks red cup eGift preloaded with $500. Here’s how: 1. Take a photo of your beautiful or creative red cup moment and post it on Instagram … more »
Wheat-free Omega-3 Bistro Box
The new Omega-3 bistro box was truly inspired by you. Your requests for wheat-free options , plus a few observations we've made about where you tend to eat our bistro boxes (pre-gym, post-gym, in the park, at airports, on study breaks...thanks social media!) So with that information, we decided to put together a snackable bistro box that's easy to eat on-the-go, but still brings you the healthy, wheat-free options you crave. So what's in the box? Smoked wild Alaskan salmon cream cheese, edamame hummus, wheat-free crackers, and an omega-3 infused trail mix with dark chocolate chunks. Delicious! But my favorite part? All the different combinations. You can make mini sandwiches with … more »
Big News for the Beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte
We have been trying to keep a lid on some big news for the beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte, but with recipes and ingredients starting to ship to our stores, the buzz is building. What’s the big deal? After hearing from customers and partners about ingredients, we took another look at this beverage and why we created it so many years ago. It was simple - espresso, perfectly steamed milk, warm fall spices with delicious flavor of pumpkin pie that reminds you of the cool, crisp days of autumn. So, with that great taste you know and love, the PSL returns this fall, and this time it will be made with real pumpkin and without caramel coloring. But for now, enjoy the rest of summer and when PSL is … more »

Saving energy with LED Lighting
Since 2008, you have shared a lot of ideas about how we can make our stores more “green,” more comfortable, and more energy efficient. I work on the Facilities Environmental Performance Management Team, and as an environmentalist myself, I am proud to share some of the great strides we’ve made with energy efficient lighting in our stores. But first, let me share an email from my colleague’s Mom: “This past week I was at my Starbucks getting coffee and the physical setting was so friendly, smelled great, and of course people genuinely friendly. I asked what had changed to make this store so comfortable....changed the lighting!!!!! Hope your day is productive or relaxed … more »
