Help U.S. Jobs, Get an Indivisible Wristband
“Indivisible” is a word that brings together Starbucks partners, our suppliers and the American people. I’ve had the great pleasure of helping to bring an American-made Indivisible wristband to you as a thank you when you donate to the Create Jobs for USA Fund, operated by Opportunity Finance Network®. It has been an exciting journey watching the wristband design and materials come together to be manufactured at existi ng American manufacturing plants, and we’re even gearing up some new plants. One hundred percent of the materials are from right here in the U.S.A. The red, white and blue cord is manufactured in Rhode Island, and the brass crimps come from Florida. … more »
A New Addition to our Holiday Classics…
Hello MSI’ers! My name is Josh and I work on the Espresso Team here at Starbucks HQ in Seattle. I have the great privilege of announcing the return of the holiday Red Cups, sleeves and, of course, our signature Holiday Espresso Beverages to participating stores in the US on November 1st! As a Seattle native and Starbucks aficionado it’s not holiday time at my house until the arrival of the Gingerbread Latte – a personal favorite of more than ten years. But what I am really enthused to tell you about today is a new addition to our Holiday line-up. Our holiday beverages have been creating moments of connections for our customers since we first launched Eggnog Latte 25 years ago … more »

Real-Time Starbucks Updates in Times Square
Next time you're in the Big Apple, stop by our newly re-opened Starbucks Store at the corner of 47th and Broadway in Times Square.

More Fun with Pumpkin Spice Latte
It’s time to “fall back in” to our usual routine. Summer vacations have come and gone, the kids are (finally) back in school and we’re settling back into our habitual schedules. Fortunately, there’s something to spice things up a little: the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte !

This latte brings the flavors of fall right to your cup: pumpkin, cinnamon, clove, ginger and nutmeg. Combined with espresso and freshly-steamed milk, and topped with whipped cream and pumpkin pie spices, it’s no wonder we get asked for this one … more »

People are smiling and happy and commerce is flourishing. Imagine that what had once been the inner-city is now a safe, vibrant thriving community. I know it is hard to imagine these things with the level of economic uncertainty facing our local communities. Imagine being one of millions of people living under these conditions without a positive outlook. Now just imagine growing up under these conditions. In under-invested urban communities, systemic issues such as consistent quality education, access … more »
