Starbucks has once again amazed me with their new drinks.
Welcome to Espresso Wonderland!
I’m sure your tastebuds will be shaken up as Starbucks redefines your Espresso experience with the new espresso layer collection. Check them out.
TAHITIAN VANILLA MACCHIATO (Short – ₱ 155| Tall – ₱ 165| Grande ₱ 180|Venti– ₱ 195) – Imagine velvety steamed milk is infused with floral, Tahitian vanilla syrup before being topped with Starbucks signature espresso, to become the macchiato everyone knows and loves. It is then finished with an authentic crosshatch of vanilla bean sauce and topped with ground vanilla bean pod sprinkles. (Also available in iced and blended formats)
VALENCIA ORANGE COCOA CAPPUCCINO (Short – ₱ 145| Tall – ₱ 155| Grande ₱ 170|Venti– ₱ 185) is made with decadent Valencia Orange Mocha Sauce combined with milk, topped with dense creamy, cappuccino-worthy foam, then layered with affogato-style signature espresso shots, perfectly sweet cocoa powder and tartly-sweet bits of orange peel to add even more flavor. (Also available in iced and blended formats). This one I can’t wait to try!
STARBUCKS TRIBUTE BLEND™ (₱ 445)
Available for a limited time is the Starbucks Tribute Blend. This coffee was created to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary. Starbucks Tribute Blend® combines four of our all-time favorite coffees: Ethiopian sun-dried beans with an exotic flourish of dark cherry; Aged Sumatra, loved for its syrupy body and cedary spice notes; juicy, herbal and complex coffees from Papua New Guinea; and our Colombia coffee, bright, balanced and nutty. It’s a delicious blend, perfect for sharing with friends and neighbors, and our way of honoring the communities we live and work in each day.
You can also enjoy this coffee anytime, anywhere with the Starbucks VIA Tribute Blend so you won’t miss out its layers of flavors even on the go.
What’s more, the Starbucks Cold Brew, the slow-steeped and brewed without heat coffee which was previously available only to Starbucks Reserve stores, is now available in all Starbucks stores nationwide.
