Chinese New Year @ Starbucks Philippines
Highlighting the celebration of Chinese New Year at Starbucks in the Philippines is the Lunar New Year Card! Since it’s the Year of the Monkey, we expect a “monkey” in the card, right!? 🙂
It’s the perfect gift to celebrate a fun, loving, energetic and cheerful 2016 and will be available starting January 8, 2016 for an initial consumable load amount of Php 300.
In addition, Starbucks is featuring a collection of Chinese New Year merchandise including the Happy Monkey Tumbler which is so cute and lovable. Aside from the unqiue slide tumlber opening, it has a monkey at the bottom of the stirrer. Dig that! 🙂
Add to that masterfully roasted packaged coffees that celebrates Starbucks passion for coffee and pairs well with sweet Lunar New Year treats such as the Guatemala Casi Cielo.
It’s a Latin American coffee with elegant flavor complexity, a unique floral aroma, lemon-like acidity and dark cocoa finish. These coffee beans are expertly roasted to showcase subtle floral aromas, citrusy brightness and lingering chocolate taste. It is a remarkable coffee with a depth and versatility, perfect for a variety of special occasions at home.
