Two Exciting Flavors and More Are Coming to Starbucks This January 9

As we welcome 2018, festivities continue on at Starbucks.

The coffee brand hypes up the celebration for its 20th anniversary, with decadent servings of flavor and a variety of exciting on the menu.

Starbucks is complementing its signature Espresso Roast with sophisticated flavors like salted caramel and Okinawa brown sugar, expertly crafted into an assortment of beverages.
Starting on January 9, Starbucks mixes in one of Japan's most popular culinary ingredients, the Okinawa Brown Sugar, to create the Okinawa Brown Sugar Latte. The elegant drink highlights the hint of molasses found in the sugar and fuses in light caramel for a less sweet, coffee forward drink.

A returning favorite, the Salted Caramel Mocha Crumble, combines deep chocolate and espresso flavors with toffee nut syrup, layered with a delicious combination of whipped cream and caramel sauce. The beverage is topped with a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt for a perfect sweet and savory taste.

"We love to constantly surprise our customers with new flavor combinations. This season's beverages complement our signature Starbucks Espresso and whisks in premium ingredients, like Okinawa brown sugar from Japan, for a moment twist," said Keith Cole, head of marketing for Starbucks Philippines.
