July 2013 – The news from Starbucks says they will be making soda now. Thought they would go wild and make some unique new soda flavors, or even a new coffee soda. Sadly, they are not that adventurous. They went crazy and made these flavors:
Okay, these are special ‘hand crafted’ sodas, but still, not like they don’t know anything about coffee. Started in trial runs in Nashville and Atlanta, and Austin Texas.
Nothing fancy, just some words about the weekend. Made with CS2.
The "blend with me" album cover design, in Photoshop.
All the way out the door, brrrr.
Productivity just went through the roof. Thanks Starbucks! !!!
Such a strange combination. Do almonds go well with coffee??
How about coffee flavored donuts. These almonds are fancy… and at a high cost.
Looks like Bring your own Coffee Day!
That is good news, right?
We are betting that shortly after the picture was taken, the latte was consumed by either the dog owner or the photographer.
Capturing the first drip of espresso. Well, two drips at the same time. Can you smell what the wegotcoffee is cookin??
Photo of a woman holding freshly designed latte art. The are is the standard latte art of leaves.
When will she have her own roast of coffee? Pictured here is the cappuccino art by Jodi.
Oddly titled as it is Latte Art. A cappuccino has too much foam to draw art in the crema.
A great new variety of K cups. Real Brooklyn themed coffee for the Keurig.
Vinny says you get this coffee, okay??
January 2012 – Ah, a new lighter blend was spotted at Starbucks during a typical mid-day coffee craving. The Willow Blend appears to have replace the other lighter blend called Blonde Roast. Since switching to black coffee, the lighter roasts are better tasting than the really dark roasts, which can taste burnt without adding milk or cream. Below is the actual Willow Blend ordered, in a Tall to-go cup.
Yes, the Willow Roast, with the top off!
This tasted too much like the Blonde Roast that was an alternate to the dark …
Jan 2013 – Finally, after the long long wait for a Coffee Greek Yogurt, Oikos makes a coffee yogurt. This one isn’t just plain coffee, but a Cafe Latte yogurt. The bad part is this ventures into the pseudo flavors in a good healthy yogurt. The things that make this colored and flavored is Black Carrot Juice, and ‘coffee flavor’, which somehow includes coffee powder. Wouldn’t just using coffee give this a REAL coffee color and flavor? The carrot juice for color just adds color, no vitamins from the carrots.
The only hints we give are… It was taken in the United States, it isn't a place you hang out after work like a Starbucks, and this isn't a coffee shop you would visit just for the coffee. The prize? Well, write to us and we will make a nice graphic with your name and add it to this post of the Mystery Coffee Shop. Have your friends on Facebook try and guess as well.
Starbucks used to mail a postcard which you would bring to Starbucks for a free drink. You didn’t have to go to get the drink right on your birthday, you had about 25 days to use the postcard. Now they let you use a registered Starbucks card. The card has to be registered online 30 days before your birthday. A balance is not required on the card, just show up no more than 30 days after your birthday, or ON your birthday and get a free drink. Check your status …
