TWENTY YEARS!!! On December 4, 2017, Starbucks will celebrate 20 years of its presence in the Philippines!
December 4, 1997 saw the opening of a little coffeehouse with a green logo in a Makati building and to this day, it still stands there – in 6750 Building, Ayala Center. Starbucks Philippines was the third market to open outside of North America.
In celebration of these two decades, Starbucks is coming out with a very special anniversary collection of mugs and tumblers.
At the top is its (very) limited edition Starbucks 20th Anniversary collection of mugs released beginning December 1, 2017. All the anniversary mugs’ designs are a tribute to the Philippines’ woven art. Each 12-oz ceramic mug features traditional textile patterns and is accented by 200 white and emerald (the traditional 20th anniversary stone) Swarovski crystals. It also comes with a special-edition numbered certificate and a ready-to-gift box stamped with the Starbucks wordmark.
