Testing E-pay Statements for Starbucks Partners
Hey there partners, it's Scooter here. I’m so excited to share my first blog post with you. I’m writing from my desk in my cube at the Starbucks Support Center. I am pleased to share that your idea about Electronic pay E-pay statements is actually being tested for a company-wide rollout. I was really excited to hear about this program because like many of you, when payday rolls around and I get my pay stub, I just stick it in a drawer, or in my pocket or a random pile of papers somewhere and forget about it. And then when I actually need it for something, it’s nowhere to be found. That’s why the E-Pay statement program is so great. When it rolls out, you’ll be … more »
Reusable to-go Cold Cup
Over the weekend I bought a new product at Starbucks, a reusable to-go cold cup. It looks just like a Starbucks cold cup. It has the Starbucks logo, fill lines, and the drink marking boxes. It is complete with a reusable green straw. The straw is genius! It has a notch at the bottom so if your cup were to fall over (hopefully when not full with a lovely iced latte) the straw probably won’t fall out. The cup is even dishwasher safe. I was thinking about the number one idea currently on the site, Recycling Cold Cups . This isn’t exactly a way for Starbucks stores to recycle the cold cups, but it gives us the cold coffee consumers a way to reuse a cup. I also noticed over 100 idea suggestions … more »
Starbucks V2V – Get Inspired, Get Involved!
Hi there! My name is Anali and I work on the Starbucks digital team. I’m so excited to say that we have launched a social network called Starbucks V2V (Volunteer to Volunteer) that’s all about building community in your local neighborhood as well as around the world.

Bring Back Bold!
Hello MSI community. To our bold coffee lovers everywhere, thank you for sharing your passion with us. We heard you… and we’re making some changes! First, a little background, in April, we launched our new daily brewed coffee, Pike Place Roast™. This coffee has an approachable flavor profile. Overall it has had impressive success. People tell us that they're coming in more often because of Pike Place Roast™. But with the launch of Pike Place Roast™, we stopped brewing a second coffee in the afternoon to reduce waste when brewed coffee is less popular. And while flavorful and smooth, customers have told us that they miss the roasty flavors of some of our other … more »
