So, on what other holidays is Starbucks open this year? Starbucks is open on every single holiday, according to SecretMenus.com, though there may be holiday hours on certain occasions.
Last month, Starbucks unveiled their new Cold-Pressed Espresso and, according to the company, this will serve as the foundation for a new menu of sparkling beverages. Andrew Linnemann, vice president, Global Coffee, Tea and Roastery, dished on the new creation, saying:
We started with the question, ‘How do we deliver the same great flavor and taste as cold-brewed coffee we slow-steep in stores?’ During that process, our R&D team flipped traditional brewing on its head, and found another way to deliver something even more extraordinary.
Kieran Murphy, Technical Manager, Process Engineering, R&D, then added:
Instead of 20 hours of slow-steeping, our process takes about an hour. What we produce is a highly concentrated extract compared to what a traditional cold brew gives us. The extra strength is unique, and allows us to create beverages with more flexibility to experiment in new cold beverage territories.
Currently, the new espresso is only available at the Roastery in Seattle, Washington and it features three new sparkling espresso creations, which are made with Starbucks Reserve Microblend No. 11.
