Available starting September 11 for a limited time only, Starbucks is introducing three new coffee-forward beverages.
Using all the elements of coffee from the bean down to the husk, Starbucks introduces a refreshing take on the classic cold brew – the Cascara Cold Foam Cold Brew. Cascara, more commonly known as the husk of the coffee cherry, adds a unique boost to this revitalizing cold beverage with its complex and slightly sweet flavor. A fusion of flavors and textures, the cold brew is topped with a smooth layer of cold foam made from low-fat milk and cascara syrup and has hints of brown sugar and maple derived from the combination of the cherry and black coffee.
Those looking for a warm and comforting cup can also try the Caramel Cinnamon Cookie Latte. Available for a limited time only, this latte is topped with fluffy whipped cream, sweet caramel sauce, and cinnamon and crunchy cookie crumbles which add hints of caramel, cinnamon and warm spice to complement its espresso base.
Coinciding with their new beverages are these awesome collectibles that will surely send us rushing to our nearest Starbucks stores.
Taken from a Norse woodcut from an old maritime book, the two-tailed siren pays homage to the seafaring history of Seattle as a port city and the journey of coffee itself, which until now is often being transported across the seas.
This September, Starbucks reimagines the biggest symbol of its brand with the release of its limited-edition Anniversary Collection. Themed the “Celestial Beauty of the Undersea”, the artwork has ethereal qualities with the siren swimming in a sea of stars.
As for its Anniversary Blend which started in 1996 to commemorate its 25th year, Starbucks celebrates its legacy of coffee roasting, blending expertise and craftsmanship with a bold fusion of aged Sumatra, Papua New Guinea and Indonesian coffees blended together and roasted. The result is a complex and full-bodied cup with spicy and earthy flavors that surprises with each sip. Available in whole bean and VIA® format.
Along with the Anniversary Blend is the special Anniversary Collection which includes a wide array of merchandise catered to varied tastes. As part of its celestial theme, the line features a palette of cool shades of blue and white with hints of copper. The Siren artwork engages customers with its playful and alluring deep-sea elements, and provides a layer of whimsy to the collection.

Through the years, the siren has continuously transformed along with Starbucks growing global community. When the company revamped itself into a coffeehouse in 1987, its muse was colored an emerald green and given a more contemporary look. In 1992, the logo was zoomed in on the siren, focusing on her wavy locks and warm smile with just hints of her two tails. Eventually, 2011 ushered the biggest change yet as the siren broke away from her circle and became the icon that we all know today. Now, she remains the welcoming face of Starbucks, pulling in coffee-lovers with her enigmatic smile
