Starbucks Philippines celebrates two decades of brewing coffee in the country. Starbucks PH pays tribute to Filipino craftmanship and introduces the Starbucks 20th Anniversary Collection inspired by local textiles, designed with fine materials including Swarovski crystals and real white gold. Mark your calendars collectors as these rare items will be released this 1 December 2017, at a limited count.
The first Starbucks PH branch started brewing in 4 December 1997 in Ayala. The aroma of handcrafted beverages wafted from within its walls, which bore the intriguing green mermaid insignia on its walls. Soon enough, the place welcomed coffee lovers who found comfort in the warm smiles of the baristas and in the respite it offered from the bustling Makati City.
The Philippines became the third market, outside of North America, where Starbucks grew its business. This month, the coffee brand relives these memories with a celebration for its 20th year, beginning with the release of a special collection and rare coffee beans that traces the growth of Starbucks.
The most precious item for release is a full white gold version of the 20th Anniversary mug. Starbucks creates the rare premium item as a nod to Philippine heritage. Only 500 pieces will be produced of these collectible anniversary mugs which are adorned with 200 lovely Swarovski® crystals. The item is priced at P6,295.
Also available in silver and white colors for the 12 oz double-wall ceramic mugs with press-in white gold covers. Only 1,500 pieces of each mug will be available for P4,295.
The 16 fl oz opaque white acrylic tumbler features the 20th anniversary weave pattern in silver foil and offers both functionality and understated glam for P895. Each tumbler comes with a package and a hangtag for gifting.
Also to be released on December 4 is the Starbucks 6750 Ayala Mug. The first store to open in the Philippines gets its own place on the shelf, with matte black ceramic mugs designed with the gold Siren decal. The artwork that was first seen on the wall of the store is rendered anew in this 12 oz. tribute item that features special hand-painted finishes and comes in an elaborate gift package. The 6750 branch will exclusively carry the item priced at P1,295.
So collectors, you may visit Starbucks 6750 Ayala Avenue, Makati City to get your hand on these exclusive items.
