Every day as Starbucks serves up the best-tasting coffee, wonderful moments and stories also brew within its stores as people from different walks of life gather and enjoy a good cup of coffee in the company of friends and family.
As Starbucks houses moments of human connection, it also becomes a witness to the deepest kind of connection – love. This Valentine’s Day, discover different kinds of love, some as heart-warming as a hot cup of coffee, some as sweet as your favorite desserts, and others that are stronger than any shot of espresso.
Sweeter the second time around
Bringing out distinct flavors for your perfect brew sometimes takes time. Just like the perfect cup, sometimes love also needs a little time to brew to make it much sweeter.
Unbreakable coffee connections
Jaedel and James had been miles apart in the beginning. He lived in California while she stayed in Laguna, but when they finally met they knew it was something special. Jaedel was a mother of two, and as James embraced her children into his life, they bonded over Starbucks family dates. Eventually, the pair got married and had a child of their own and as their family grew, they continued to share even more family dates at the store.
A deliciously-brewed cup of coffee, without all the extra syrups and all the extra toppings is a treat in itself. The same goes with romance, though there are passionate love affairs that endure relentless struggles, there are also beautiful stories that will touch any heart with its sincerity and simplicity.
For Rhoalyn and Geo, Starbucks didn’t just hold the memories of yesterday but also the plans of tomorrow. As frequent customers at the branch in Alpap-Leviste, the pair had spent many days imagining their lives together, sitting down and planning for the future. It was in this space that many of their milestones began as dreams and slowly turned into realities.
