STARBUCKS SUMMER 2015 DRINKS
Today is the start of Summer at Starbucks! There are two new Frappuccinos that will surely take your tastebuds to a whole new adventure. Last Saturday, I was able to try these two new Summer beverages together with my family and my cousin, Ate Tess. It was launched at the new Starbucks RCBC in BGC with a really refreshing Summer party and we were even asked to tag along some friends to make it more fun!
The two new Frappuccinos are: Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino and Dark Mocha Panna Cotta Frappucinno.
Since I am pregnant, I only tried the SUMMER BERRY PANNA COTTA FRAPPUCCINO® BLENDED BEVERAGE (Tall – ₱ 170, Grande ₱ 180, Venti– ₱ 190). It is cream based and layered with delicious panna cotta pudding plus a tart summer berry sauce. Then it is topped with whipped cream and berry drizzle making it the ultimate Summer drink! I looove how tart and fruity it was. The creamy panna cotta went really well with the berries in this drink.
peanutbutter♥ had the DARK MOCHA PANNA COTTA FRAPPUCCINO® BLENDED BEVERAGE (Tall – ₱ 180, Grande ₱ 190, Venti– ₱ 200). I’m thinking this is their Dark Mocha Frappuccino® blended beverage, which I love, only with a layer of panna cotta pudding at the bottom adding creaminess to each bittersweet sip. To finish the beverage to perfection, it is topped with whipped cream and a dusting of dark mocha powder.
Ykaie loved the Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino as well!
STARBUCKS NEW FOOD ITEMS FOR SUMMER 2015
I’m sure you’re wondering if they have any new treats to partner with the new drinks. Well, here they are:

This chocolate cake is so rich, dense and moist. It is filled with smooth, velvety milk chocolate mousse and rich crunchy chocolate paste praline.

STARBUCKS SUMMER COFFEE BLENDS
We were able to try one of the featured coffees that day which is AFRICA KITAMU (₱ 495). This balanced, complex blend of East African coffees offers well-rounded flavor and delicate acidity with exotic floral citrus characteristics making it perfect for Iced Coffee!
We made Iced Coffee using French Press. I am so envious because I couldn’t drink it. All I could do was sniff!
If you don’t have a french press and you want to enjoy Iced Coffee at home, you can try this STARBUCKS VIA® ICED COFFEE SWEETENED (₱ 250). It is caramelly-smooth with hints of citrus, lightly sweetened with a touch of cane sugar for a well-balanced, refreshing finish.
There are two new Starbucks Reserve Coffees this season too!
STARBUCKS RESERVE® KENYA SANGANA (₱595)
Situated in one of the world’s highest-elevation coffee-growing regions, tiny farms in the Sangana area turn out intensely flavored and beautifully aromatic coffees. This vivid taste of Kenya is as delicious over ice as it is brewed hot with bright acidity, black currant and Assam tea notes.
STARBUCKS RESERVE® EAST TIMOR ERMERA (₱595)
East Timor is home to a remarkable co-op of smallholder farmers. They are committed to producing high-quality coffee while also investing in health care for their families. We are proud to contribute to the clinics created by the co-op, and feel grateful to share the coffee they make possible. This blend has lemony floral notes and soft peppery spice-like characteristics.
