Oops, this post is 1 day late.
Starbucks celebrates 20 years in Singapore yesterday. The first Starbucks opens its door on 14 December 1996 at Liat Tower. Singapore was the 3rd country outside North America to have a Starbucks Store.
To celebrate its 20th anniversary in Singapore, Starbucks is launching a limited edition local dot collection mug. Priced at $32.90 and includes a $10 Starbucks Card. Hurry, the mug is only available from 12 to 18 December 2016.
Coffee lovers, there is a new Starbucks Reserve Store in town. Starbucks Singapore just opened its 7th Reserve Store at Marina Bay Sands.
The Starbucks Reserve Store at MBS is also the first in Singapore to offer the rich coffee experience of the Siphon Brewing method. Coffee lovers will also be able to explore and sample other brewing methods with Starbucks Reserve Coffee such as the Clover brewer, the Chemex coffeemaker, the traditional Coffee Press and Pour-over, in addition to the usual hand-crafted coffee and tea beverages.
Do check out the new Starbucks Reserve Store at MBS. I must say that its the most beautiful Starbucks store in Singapore.
PS: It’s right outside the ice skating rink.
Good news to all coffee lovers. Starbucks is launching Cold Brew Coffee in Singapore.
Cold Brewing is another way to brew cold coffee. Cold Brew Blend coffee is freshly ground then combined with cold water and slowly steeped for more than 10 hours in a Toddy Brewer. Instead of using heat, Cold Brew Coffee uses time to extract the coffee. The resulting coffee is ultra-smooth and naturally sweet, perfect for those who like less acidity in their iced coffee.
PS: If you don’t like your coffee black, you can add milk to the Cold Brew Coffee like me.
The Starbucks Cold Brew retails from S$4.90 (tall-sized).
Starbucks Singapore is collaborating with fashion designer Vivienne Tam to launch an exclusive line of merchandise. Inspried by Vivienne Tam’s iconic “Bird and Flora” print, the collection effortlessly blends Asian cultural roots with a modern design vocabulary recognized for its artistry.
The collection includes the Vivienne Tam + Starbucks Double Wall Mug, the Vivienne Tam + Starbucks S’well 17oz Stainless Steel Bottle, the Vivienne Tam + Starbucks Tote Bag, and the Vivienne Tam + Starbucks Limited Edition Card.
The Starbucks + Vivienne Tam collection is available beginning 10 June 2016 at all Starbucks stores across Singapore at $128. Only limited stocks are available in stores.
Starbucks just launched a new drink, the Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino.
Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino is a twist on classic American summer flavors inspired by s’mores. You might be thinking what’s a s’mores. A s’more is a traditional nighttime campfire treat popular in the US and Canada. It consist of a fire roasted marshmallow and a layer of chocolate sandwiched between two pieces of graham cracker. (There’s even a National S’mores Day that is celebrated annually on 10th August)
The Roasted Marshmallow S’mores Frappuccino taste great and is great for the warm weather now.
PS: Another classic American dessert, Key Lime Pie Frappuccino will be coming soon. Looks like we are having a sweet sweet summer.
