Some of you may remember handcrafted Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages from last summer when we offered them in Arizona and California. We loved these drinks as much as you did, and now they are here to stay. You'll soon find them in U.S. stores and many stores outside the U.S. too.
We’re super excited because, well, let’s face it – even those of us who work in the coffee business sometimes need a little pick-me-up from something other than our go-to double Tall latte. Handcrafted Starbucks Refreshers™ beverages are a mix of juice and real fruit, plus a little natural caffeine from Green Coffee Extract. In other words, it’s coffee that tastes nothing like coffee, and my new favorite way to refresh and recharge in the hours between lunch and happy hour. My co-worker has even traded her sacred 2 p.m. diet soda for a Very Berry Hibiscus Starbucks Refreshers™ beverage!
So the next time your day calls for a little extra energy, try a Very Berry Hibiscus with whole blackberries or a Cool Lime with a fresh lime slice.
But we didn’t stop there. We’ve also packed the re-energizing goodness of Green Coffee Extract into new Starbucks VIA Refreshers™ instant beverages. Available in U.S. Starbucks stores, these come in the same delicious flavors as the handcrafted versions. Think of it as the secret weapon stashed in your purse or desk drawer for those moments when you need an instant boost.
And look for the carbonated Starbucks Refreshers™ in U.S. grocery stores or your local store (make sure to try all three flavors! Strawberry Lemonade is my personal favorite.)
After you’ve given them a try, tell us what think!
