Starbucks introduces two indulgent beverages this February 2017

The Heart Month of February will see two indulgent beverages from Starbucks, the return of the Starbucks Tribute Blend, and more.

Starting February 21, enjoy the flavors of the Tahitian Vanilla Macchiato and Valencia Orange Cocoa Cappuccino.

Tahitian Vanilla Macchiato offers a twist on the classic pairing of vanilla and coffee. Its floral aroma and mild sweetness pairs perfectly with the roasty coffee and complemented by a layer of velvety steamed milk. It is then topped with Starbucks signature espresso and finished with vanilla bean specks and vanilla drizzle in the classic double crosshatch pattern.

Enjoy Christmas 2016 with Starbucks holiday food and beverage items

It’s my favorite time of the year again — Christmas time! Starbucks holiday food and beverage items are here once more to put us in that Christmas spirit as early as now. Going by the Christmas theme: “Crafted by Hand and Heart“, Starbucks’ food and beverage choices indeed celebrate the treasure of creating by hand and from the heart.

Let’s start with the holiday beverages! There’s a new variant this year, making it three (3) holiday beverages in all.

HOLIDAY BEVERAGES  (from November 2, 2016 to January 8, 2017)

Santa Hat Dark Mocha Frappuccino

This is the NEW holiday beverage – Looking like Santa’s hat, this frappe is made from dark mocha topped with classic and strawberry whipped cream, strawberry drizzle and a dollop of snowy white whipped cream on top. I love the strawberry flavor so sipping this one was a delight and a strong contender against my holiday favorite — the next beverage I’ll talk about.

The Santa Hat Dark Mocha is available in hot, iced and blended variants. Tall – PhP 170; Grande PhP 185; Venti– PhP 200.

Starbucks’ 2016 Summer Offerings are Here!

It’s summer and what a hot, hot summer it is! That’s why as I’m writing this, I am sitting comfortably in one of the armchairs at a Starbucks outlet, drinking one of the summer offerings of Starbucks – the Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino. Yay! I loved this the first time it came out and now I’m sooooo glad it’s back. But there’s not just one, but two, summer beverages.

Starbucks Summer_April 19

The Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino is one that will easily evoke images of summer outings with family and friends at the beach. It is made of roasted marshmallows, sandwiched with chocolate between graham crackers. The Summer Berry Panna Cotta, on the other hand, combines Panna Cotta with different types of berries to create a layered frappuccino beverage topped with whipped cream and a tart berry drizzle.

The Starbucks Art of Macchiato + new Starbucks cards

Macchiato (pronounced mah-kee-ah-to) comes from an Italian word meaning “marked” or “stained” (Wikipedia). Wikipedia continues by saying it usually describes two distinctive drinks:
* Caffe machiato – espresso with a little milk
* Latte machiato – steamed milk with a little expresso

Starbucks is bringing macchiato drinks into their menu from February 23 to April 18, 2016 and it looks they will be offering both the caffe and latte variants in 3 beverages: 2 hot, 1 cold.
