Coconut Mocha Frappuccino® Blended Beverage Now Available at Barnes & Noble Starbucks Cafés
Hello, my name is Pamela and I’m one of the MSI moderators representing the Food Service team. My role as a territory manager is to work with Food Service operators who offer the We Proudly Brew Starbucks program at various locations including hotels, hospitals, office buildings, resorts, colleges & universities, and Barnes & Noble too.

Treat Receipt is Back!
Today the treat receipt program returns for its third summer! You told us that you would like the treat receipt program to be extended, so this year the treat receipt will be around until October 4. Thanks for sharing and voting on this idea! How does the treat receipt work? If you make a purchase before 2 p.m. you can return the same day after 2 p.m. and enjoy any handcrafted Grande-size cold beverage for only two dollars (plus tax if applicable) with your receipt from your morning purchase. What handcrafted cold beverage do you enjoy most? Frappuccino® blended beverage? Iced Coffee? Vivanno™ Smoothie? Iced Tea? Iced Espresso? Enjoy a refreshing beverage this afternoon. Don’t … more »
From the Blue Mountains of Jamaica to Clover
Coffee in barrels? I thought barrels are for grapes and wine, and coffee comes in burlap bags. But Jamaica Blue Mountain® breaks the mold, and this spring we were delighted to see barrels from Jamaica come into our cupping room. Right from the beginning, you know this coffee is something special. This year we saw the iconic barrels arrive at Starbucks, and we’ve been excited to share this exquisite coffee with you ever since.. To carry the name Jamaica Blue Mountain®, the coffee must be grown in one of the parishes in the Blue Mountains where the coffee grows at altitudes of up to 5,000 feet. It is processed under strict quality control guidelines set forth by the Jamaica Coffee … more »
Coming Soon… Olive Way, Seattle Starbucks Store Remodel
I’m excited to let you know that the Olive Way store in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle will be getting a remodel soon. We want to reflect the local character of the neighborhood we’re a part of and to deliver an authentic coffee house experience. When the store re-opens later this fall, the new design will not only represent a new level of story-telling, but will also be using some reclaimed & local materials as well as work from local artists. We will be providing a new and amazing customer experience around coffee, as well as a transformational element to our offerings that will extend our invitation to customers into afternoons and evenings. I believe our Capitol … more »
Chocolate Chunk Cookie Recipe Improved Thanks to Your Ideas
Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes with your food? I love TV cooking shows that take you behind the velvet ropes and show how your favorite foods are made. Here at Starbucks our partners behind the scenes work hard every day to bring you the tastiest food possible. Last summer, we removed artificial dyes, artificial flavors, artificial trans fat and high fructose corn syrup from our foods to deliver tastier items with simple recipes just like you can make at home. Our Chocolate Chunk Cookie recipe was improved to remove all that unnecessary stuff, but you let us know through customer comments and My Starbucks Idea that the new recipe wasn’t as delicious. Megan, one of … more »
Popcorn at Starbucks…who knew?
Rich, buttery popcorn always reminds me of the drive-in theater. (Oops, I guess I just gave away my age!) Big, brown grocery bag filled with freshly popped popcorn and dotted on the outside with the little greasy spots of buttery, deliciousness. Well, the drive-in is gone and sadly I no longer douse my popcorn in butter (wasn’t it great being a kid, when you didn’t care about things like that?) But thankfully, I still get to indulge in rich, tasty, fluffy popcorn. Starbucks now offers two popcorn flavors at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada. If you are like me and you love butter…you are in for a treat with the Classic Butter flavor and if you like things a little … more »
Brewed Coffee Calendar
Hi everyone, my name is Angela Staehle, and I work on the Brewed Coffee team. I want to take this opportunity to thank you, our loyal MyStarbucksIdea community, for helping make our recent Bold Coffee promotion a success. We heard you ask for more coffee variety in our stores, and for eight weeks we spiced up our Bold Pick calendar - rotating in some of your favorites, as well as featuring some never before brewed coffees like Italian Roast and (Starbucks)RED East Africa Blend, and an old favorite Organic Yukon Blend®. We were overwhelmed by your positive response during the promotion. It was truly inspiring to see so many customers and partners tasting and talking about different coffees … more »
