My Coffee and Biscotti Mini-Tour
Full disclosure: until recently, I’d never tasted a biscotti at Starbucks. I’m just usually so enamored by the pastry case that I decide on my snack before I get to the offerings by the register.

New EarthSleeve™ Saves Resources
Picking up a hot beverage but forgot your travel tumbler? Take a close look at the sleeve on your cup. It looks and performs the same as our previous cup sleeve, but there’s been a big improvement. It has been modified to use 34% less paper and increased the recycled content from 60% to 85% post-consumer fiber – and it’s still compostable and recyclable! With nearly three billion* hot cup sleeves produced in the United States in 2011 and Starbucks representing nearly half of the marketplace, this innovation will allow us to save almost 100,000 trees, based on our 2011 volume. This new design also saves in shipping – we can fit 15% more sleeves on a truck, reducing the … more »
