Now that’s a latte love! It was 2008 when Austin Mann first met Esther Havens in Waco, Texas. The two strangers seemingly had much in common right from the beginning: Both were busy freelance photographers who...
It’s no secret that Ivanka Trump is a fan of Starbucks, as she’s regularly advertised on her Twitter. But today, instead of indulging at the Trump Tower branch, she made an appearance at D.C.'s Dupont North location to grab a morning pick-me-up — gaining quite a bit of attention in the process.
Your favorite Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) barista might be showing off a new look next time you order that latte -- sporting dark-wash jeans, a tone-on-tone plaid shirt and fedora. The coffee chain announced a new North American dress code Monday that invites more than just black, white and khaki options. The dress code is intended to be more reflective of what its baristas wear outside of work.
Starbucks is finally ready to write its Teavana “tea bar” experiment off as a loss. In 2012, the chain forked over $620 million in cash for the tea line, and Howard Schultz boasted the acquisition presented “a $90 billion global market opportunity.”
There are some things you can count on at any American Starbucks location, like the uniform flavor of Pike Place Roast, a sub-par bagel, or the baristas’ inability to spell Jennypher correctly. Outside of the US, however, the chain must make some menu adjustments based on local tastes. Although the term “unusual” is certainly relative, here’s a glimpse of Starbucks’ weirdest international offerings. Items like green tea eclairs in China sound totally delicious to me, but others are a little questionable (looking at you, fruitcake latte).
It’s the sound of someone in Starbucks’ marketing department about to get fired. The coffee giant is profusely apologizing after actress Thandie Newton drew attention to a questionable store display on Twitter earlier this week, reports the Mirror. The company soon issued an apology to the actress for its eyebrow-raising choice of decor. Unsurprisingly, the photo is drawing some ire from other Twitter users.
As you’re well aware by now, the rollout of Starbucks’ holiday cups has sparked much debate over the Christmas designs or the lack thereof. To compete with the plain red cups, Dunkin’ Donuts launched new coffee cups with the word ‘joy’ along with more Christmas-y designs. All we can say the red cup debacle has shown us how passionate people are over their morning joe, especially when it relates to Christmas. Many have taken to Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook with the hashtag #itsjustacup to display their creative doodles and funny memes to show their opinions over the matter.
by Whitney Filloon, Eater.com Coffee drinkers inexplicably pissed off about Starbucks’ decidedly plain holiday cups have another, more festive option for their caffeine needs: Dunkin’ Donuts has launched new coffee cups emblazoned with the word “joy” and sprigs of holly in a Christmas-y red and green color scheme, the New York Post points out. While previous iterations of Starbucks’ holiday coffee cups have featured evergreen trees or holiday ornaments, this year the coffee giant chose to go with a plain red cup in an effort to be more inclusive. MORE: Tracking Chipotle’s Public Health Disaster Controversy over the cups erupted when a Christian internet evangelist posted a now-viral video in which he expressed his outrage over Starbucks’ lack of Christmas spirit; in a followup statement to the Washington Post, he wrote, “The cup is symbolic of a larger war against Christianity in this country. The policemen of political correctness have demanded that the silent majority bend its knee to a vocal minority.”
By Paige Rodgers I hate coffee. I know, I know, that makes me a horrible college student. But this is the one coffee drink that I absolutely love. This sweet indulgent frappuccino has the perfect blend of nuts, chocolate, coffee and caramel, so get blending, all you coffee haters out there.
By Morgan Nielsen It’s official. Pumpkin Spice is back with a vengeance (and a twitter account). While there are some definite improvements to this years’ PSL (read: real pumpkin AND only vegetable-based coloring), it still may not be everyone’s cup of tea, no matter how much we want to love it.

You know it’s fall when pumpkin spice lattes arrive at Starbucks, followed by pumpkin-flavored Twinkies, vodka, and cereal in grocery stores (the only item that doesn’t have a pumpkin spice limited edition? Maybe next year.) In a nod to the pumpkin-flavored frenzy, BuzzFeed decided to introduce Starbucks’ pumpkin spiced lattes to a handful of young PSL virgins, and captured their hilarious reactions on film. This year, Starbucks added real pumpkin to their fall flavored drinks for the first time.
Last week, when Starbucks announced it had just released six new, limited-release flavors, we literally ran out the door, bought them all, tasted and ranked them for you.
In 2015 corporate America, “Starbucks?” is the new “Smoke?” The coffee’s just okay, but the misanthropic people-watching is the best work-break entertainment going.
We know — you don’t drink Starbucks coffee. You’re a refined coffee connoisseur. But we also know you’re still going to try one of the six new frappuccino flavors that Starbucks unveiled on Monday.
In honor of the Frappuccino’s 20th anniversary, Starbucks announced six new “Fan Flavors” Monday morning: Cupcake, Caramel Cocoa Cluster, Cupcake, Cotton Candy, Cinnamon Roll, Red Velvet Cake, and Lemon Bar.
You’ve never been to a coffee shop like the Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room, because there is no other coffee shop like this one.
If a small Frappuccino seems like too much of an indulgence, Starbucks is now selling a more petite version of the sugary coffee drink.
