Will Starbucks Philippines go Blonde?
Starbucks in the US recently introduced a "lighter-bodied and mellow" coffee called the Starbucks® Blonde Roast, which gently awakens the senses. It has said to be "subtle and soft with mellow acidity, and delivers an approachable and flavorful cup with slight hints of roast."
"The new coffees included in this category are Starbucks Veranda Blend™ (Delicate nuances of soft cocoa and lightly toasted nuts await you), Starbucks Willow Blend™ (Sparkling flavors in a breezy, delicious cup), which is also available in Decaf, and the Veranda ViaReady Brew.
As foodie Lori Baltazar asked on Twitter, "I wonder if Starbucks' new Blonde Roast will be offered in the Philippines?" I ask, will Starbucks Philippines go Blonde? That will be something worth the wait, and the guessing. She adds that, "a 'weaker' brew might encourage more Pinoys to drink it black." Let's see this first quarter, shall we?
