TAZO® Iced Tea Feedback Requested
This year we are rolling out TAZO® Packaged Iced Teas in a new look, still in the same craveable flavors -- Tazo® Iced Passion®, Green, and Black teas. All of these Packaged Iced Teas are the same as the Shaken Iced Tea we make in our stores. The best part is that it’s super easy to create at home. Each tea bag makes a pitcher-sized (check out the new iced tea pitcher available in select stores and online ) serving so you can bring to your next BBQ, picnic, or summertime festivity to share with friends. My personal favorite way to make it -- mixed with lemonade for a delicious, citrusy taste. We would like to get your feedback on both the tea and its new packaging. Please let … more »
Made with Patience, Care, and Fine Chocolate
For all of you who requested a chocolate croissant, your wish has been granted. Our new La Boulange lineup includes a Chocolate Croissant that’s pure bliss. The secrets to its deliciousness? One hundred percent pure butter croissant dough that’s rolled, stretched and cut by hand, then wrapped around two batons of chocolate. And this isn’t just any chocolate. It originates from Colombia, a country known for its rich, never-bitter cacao beans. Here, the cacao trees grow slowly under the shade of plantains for their first three years. As the beans ripen, they develop their subtle caramel, floral and coconut aromas. After harvesting, the beans are fermented to further heighten their … more »
Afternoon Refreshment is Cooler with Treat Receipt
It’s back! Our popular Treat Receipt offer comes back online on July 15. Here’s how it works - bring in your same day morning receipt after 2 pm and get any Grande (16 oz.) size handcrafted cold beverage for just $2. Treat Receipt is a great opportunity to try something new—like our newest Starbucks Refreshers Beverage, Valencia Orange . Or simply get a great deal on your afternoon favorite. Me?

An Iced Coffee Concoction Inspired by Starbucks Partner Ideas
Orange Spice Iced Coffee is our newest addition to the Iced Coffee lineup. Many of you may be wondering how we came up with this exotic and interesting flavored Iced Coffee. Our baristas are known for experimenting behind the bar. They find creative ways to reapply ingredients intended for one drink to make entirely new ones that fellow partners and customers alike may love. That in part is the inspiration behind Orange Spice Iced Coffee . The goal was to create a fun new summer coffee beverage using ingredients and supplies that would already be in the store come summertime. We already have a refreshing core Iced Coffee that tastes great with flavors like vanilla and caramel. Our creative product … more »
A Note From the Creative Studio
Why are the numbers 80/20 hidden on the newest bags of Starbucks Caffè Verona®? For the same reason the words “by the third sip I was hooked” appear on the new packaging for Sumatra, and 475 (degrees) on our new French Roast bag. One of the many things Starbucks Global Creative Studios does is create the art, design and stories you see on our coffee packaging. About a year ago, we got a great assignment—celebrate each coffee’s individual story and highlight their different personalities. We started in the tasting room with our expert coffee tasters, cupping through all of the coffees, two each day for nine days. We heard the tale of how each coffee came to be … more »
