Starbucks re-opens select Drive-Thru Stores in PH

Update: 4/9/2020

Due to the overwhelming reception, Starbucks PH has decided to pause operations of its drive-thru stores to support the government’s enhanced community quarantine protocols.

4/8/2020 It has been almost a month since the Community Quarantine started in Luzon. At this point, we are all looking for some semblance of normalcy and what is more normal than having that daily coffee fix from Starbucks!

Well, good news! Starting April 8, select Starbucks stores will open to serve you via Drive-Thru.

Starbucks Philippines temporarily closed all of its stores on March 23 following the start of the community lockdown. Amid the pandemic, the company has donated food and beverages to frontliners such as medical personnel, law enforcement personnel, NGO volunteers and organizations.

It is Cherry Blossom Season at Starbucks

Given any other global circumstance, people would be flocking by this time of the year to Japan in anticipation of spring. But since air travel may not be the best idea, at least not for the next few months, let’s go with the next best thing.

This February, Starbucks embraces the changing of the season with new favorites inspired by the sweet-smelling peach blossom – the Pink Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino. This has a peach jelly infusion in the cream base and pink flower meringue topping that tastes as delightful as it looks. There’s also the Chocolate Black Tea Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino that blends the aromatic black tea, creamy chocolate, and tart pink peach sauce to make an indulgent spring in a cup!

It is that time of the year for Starbucks planners, travel organizers, Toffee Nut Crunch Latte, Peppermint Mocha, Starbucks Christmas Cards, and a partridge in a pear tree. And while other brands have the same products out, collecting Starbucks goodies during the holiday season has become a tradition among Filipinos. So without further adieu, let’s begin with our annual list of things to haul from our neighborhood Starbucks branches.
