¡Hola, El Salvador!
You’ve asked us on MSI for a store in El Salvador, and we’re pleased to announce that the next time you visit San Salvador, we’ll welcome you with a friendly ¡bienvenid os! This gorgeous new store opened last month in the Plaza Santa Elena shopping complex. We have been purchasing Salvadorian coffee since our first year in 1971, so it seemed only appropriate to spotlight a local offering in this new coffeehouse. Proudly featured is our El Salvador Pacamara single-origin coffee, a bright and medium-bodied offering , which is highlighted by pungent herbal notes and a citrusy finish. Join the more than 20,000 fans of Starbucks El Salvador, see pictures and learn more at www … more »
Dark Chocolate Mocha
Hello, We’ve seen an outpouring of comments related to dark chocolate ; it’s always great to see this kind of passion about the beverages at Starbucks! It creates an enormous amount of excitement for what we can offer you in the future. The mochas you enjoy in our stores today are made with a blend of two cocoas, which are layered to produce a rich chocolate experience that enhances the flavor profile of the espresso. Think of the two working together to produce the complex flavors you experience in every delicious sip! We enjoy bringing to life variations of chocolate to satisfy your chocolaty urges, like recently the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate (which also makes a delicious mocha … more »
Make a Starbucks Card even Sweeter
One of my favorite gifts to give at the holiday time is a Starbucks Card. I give them to my hairdresser, my dog walker, and select family and friends. Everyone loves Starbucks (and there’s always one close by), so it’s always a well-received gift. I have to admit that there are a couple downsides to gift cards as gifts, however. The biggest issue is that there’s nothing to wrap. It just isn’t quite the same to open an envelope as it is to unwrap a present, even a small one. And the other issue is that on Christmas morning, there’s not much you can do with a gift card right away, it’s the one day of the year when your local Starbucks is probably closed (or at … more »
A CD + A Free $5 Starbucks Card = Comfort & Joy
Happy Holidays, My name is Steve and I work on the Music team. If you’re pressed for some last-minute stocking stuffers (and who isn’t?), don’t panic. Roll into a participating U.S. or Canada Starbucks this weekend – December 18-19 – and pick up a CD or two or three. With each CD purchased you’ll receive a free $5 Starbucks Card. While supplies last. Our current music selection encompasses a range of tastes, so you may well be able to check a bunch of names off your list.

Answering Your Starbucks® Natural Fusions Questions
Hi! My name is Mani, and I worked on the development and launch of Starbucks® Natural Fusions . We’ve heard lots of your comments and questions, and we wanted to make sure that you have the latest information. Many of you have asked: where’s hazelnut? We hear you on this flavor request. Because Starbucks® Natural Fusions are made with natural flavors and real ingredients ground right in, developing a nut-based product has allergen implications that we have to work through. I can’t promise we’ll figure this out, but we are definitely looking at it. We would also love to figure out how to offer a mocha-flavored coffee – more to come on this front! One other … more »
