The newest Butterfly Pea Lemonade Cold Brew beverage is a refreshing thirst-quencher that will bring you an eye-catching surprise! The espresso beverage combines butterfly pea flower tea, a popular ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine renowned for its natural blue hue and mesmerizing color changing properties, with tangy lemonade and the deep notes of Starbucks Cold Brew.

Meanwhile, the fan-favorite Tahitian Vanilla Macchiato is also returning for a limited time. This favorite beverage is coffee-forward, combining Tahitian Vanilla syrup and velvety steamed milk, topped with Starbucks Signature Espresso, vanilla bean specks and drizzle of vanilla syrup.

“At Starbucks, we continue to explore ways to elevate the experience for customers who are looking for new and sophisticated twists with their coffee favorites," said Keith Cole, head of marketing for Starbucks Philippines. “We are constantly experimenting with coffee craftsmanship, including brewing methods and ingredient selection to bring customers something new.”

GUATEMALA FLOR DEL ROSARIO

After travelling to Latin America from Germany, Horst Spitzke discovered a passion that would redefine his life. As he settled into the lush rainforests of Coban in Guatemala, he began experimenting with planting different crops, eventually finding his calling through coffee. At his Flor del Rosario farm today, his love of coffee is matched only by his love for his workers, whom he views as family – in turn, they affectionately call him as “Papi”. Horst is proud of everything they’ve achieved together and feels he wouldn’t be able to run the farm without them. The enthusiasm and compassion that go into every bean reflect the personal journey that makes this cup special.

NICARAGUA MARACATURRA

The maracaturra varietal is known as a hybrid varietal. It is thought to have appeared in the 1800’s from a naturally occurring cross pollination between maragogype, giant coffee beans and caturra, one of the original arabicas planted throughout Central America. The family-run Buenos Aires Estate has been producing this coffee variety for over 30 years and been quite successful. The maracaturra variety is quite delicate and susceptible to any variant weather changes. The family-run estate owned by Luis Emilio Valladarez has over 215 hectares of land devoted to maracaturra and several other varieties of coffee. The family of coffee farmers is known for experimentation using different processing methods and different bean varieties to increase and enhance the cup attributes of their coffees.
