The Honey comb crunch in these two drinks will give you a difficult decision to pick the best flavor for you. 1st I like the mocha, because the honey comb crunch blended well, but I pick the orange one because the honey comb gave a few sweet rush in the flavor, but still, the orange flavor dominates.

After some taste test…..I gave up and selected the orange hahaha.

Promo and contest!! Lots of giveaways are on the line up and the only tool you need is a smartphone, an Instagram app and your Starbucks Frappuccino beverage. Scroll down below for the mechanics of the contest.


Summer phase 3 of Starbucks Philippines gave a lot of wow factor. Because the new food items and new drinks were a one of a kind and can only found in a Starbucks store. Ok, I can stop requesting now from them to bring back the turkey sandwich, because I super love their grilled lamb sandwiches, the four cheese and the banana fritter.

Oo..excited ako sa July 28, so bahala na! sana wag ma sold out ito agad hahaha.

NEW Coffee Beans
Promotion Period: July 28 – September 14, 2015









Kati-Kati Blend
STARBUCKS® KATI KATI BLEND
Kati Kati* blend displays a great example of the art of blending and roasting in action. The beans from East Africa produce extraordinary coffees that are great over ice – Kenya brings body and distinctive citrus forward flavors, whilst Ethiopia coffee softens the blend and adds more complexity in flavor and aroma. The roast is dark enough to bring the acidity, body and flavor into an invigorating balance between citrus and spice notes from Kenya and the subtle floral aromas and crisp acidity from Ethiopia.

*Kati-Kati – Swahili for “between”

₱425

SBX20150210_41114

STARBUCKS RESERVE® KENYA KARATINA AA*
This wonderful coffee takes its name from both the town and the wet mill that processed the coffee for Starbucks. It is comprised of coffees representing the Barichu Farmers Cooperative. The farms are located in Nyeri, a region known for its high quality coffee and where the cherries mature slowly, which translates in the cup to produce complex flavors.

Traditional fully washed coffees are sun-dried for 2-3 weeks to allow the flavors to intensify producing a bright citrusy acidity with savory umami notes that are complex and lingering. The flavors of the coffee can be enjoyed whether hot or iced.

*AA is a classification of coffee grown in Kenya. All Kenyan coffee is graded after it is milled. Grades are assigned based on the screen size of the bean, not the quality.

₱595

Available only in Starbucks Reserve® stores:
 Starbucks Tomas Morato, Quezon City
 Starbucks 8 Forbes Town, Bonifacio Global City
 Starbucks Keyland Centre, Makati City
 Starbucks Central Square, Bonifacio Global City
