We do it every year. We come up with a lengthy list of New Years resolutions that will transform our lives! We swear to finally use that gym membership, lose 10 pounds, pay off our credit cards and bulk up our savings account, all while keeping the house spotless and learning to speak Chinese. Sound familiar?
In the middle of all that, it can be easy to miss those smaller goals that, easy as they are to carry out, come with exponential benefits. This year, feel free to take it easy and still make a difference. Here are five ways:
The Starbucks Digital Network is honored to announce a new content partnership with the influential social action network TakePart. TakePart’s Take Action: 30 Ways for 30 Days monthly action calendar is now a regular feature on our My Neighborhood channel. If you’re currently connected to the Starbucks Digital Network, you can view the calendar here. Each week we highlight a simple daily action from the calendar that we can all take to inspire change, such as saying “Hello” to a stranger or donating a tweet to a good cause. 30 Ways for 30 Days is a great spur for positive social change. We’re excited to take part, and hope that you are too.
Good news! Our mobile payment program is now available to our friends in the UK through the official iPhone application from Starbucks!
This new functionality is a great addition to all the other services already available on the Starbucks for iPhone app in the United Kingdom. The app can also be used to manage your Starbucks Card account, reload your card, transfer balances between cards, find nearby stores and explore Starbucks products and offers.
Believe it or not, Starbucks® K-Cup® Packs are now even more convenient! In addition to your local grocery store, you can now buy them at StarbucksStore.com. We’ve got Pike Place® Roast, House Blend, Sumatra, French Roast and Breakfast Blend available in packs of 24 single-servings. Buy a pack just once, or sign up to have them delivered automatically to your door as often as you like with our subscription program. Stock your cupboards for a perfect cup every morning.
Just in time to help you reach your goals after the New Year, we’ve added a new wholesome breakfast option in our stores. Inspired by your requests to see more nutritious options, the product development team went to work and came through with the Chicken Sausage Breakfast Wrap.
I always look forward to my morning coffee, whether I’m sluggishly heading out the door on a Monday morning or cozily settling in after a weekend stroll in my Seattle neighborhood. While I love to explore our different coffees, I tend to stick to a balanced cup, like Pike® Place Roast. My husband, on the other hand, loves the darkest of dark roasts – the bolder the better. And then there’s my dad, who, while he treasures his morning coffee, typically finds some of our coffees a little too dark for his tastes.
At last, it’s time to log off. You do the 21st century equivalent of punching the clock and face what remains of the day. It’s time to uncoil a bit and music is a vital part of the process.
Our Timothy J. has put together the brand new , a selection of a dozen songs that say “day is done.” Bearing a striking nightscape cover, the CD offers up choice gems by , , and other modern music innovators. It’s a forum for music with an electronic undercurrent that’s suited for taking things down a notch. Dating from the late 1990s to 2011, these warmly buzzing tracks capture the heyday of international electronica, whether you call it nu jazz, ambient or whatever.
So, what’s with the name Blue Java? Well, blue refers to the color of the raw coffee beans before we roast them up. Most unroasted coffee beans have a greenish hue, but what is unusual about these raw beans is that they show distinctive deep blue-green color. In the cup, the coffee has herbaceous notes of sage and fresh earth and a sweet and syrupy mouthfeel.
What are some of your most positive, memorable moments from school? A field trip, maybe, or a special in-classroom project? I loved the science projects that came with dramatic chemical reactions.
Moments like these serve an educational purpose, but also a motivational one, inspiring students to continue learning.
But moments like these also have a financial cost, one which fewer and fewer school districts are able to support. As such, public school teachers spend about $40 of their own money every month to enrich their students’ educational experience – a significant out-of-pocket expense that’s not always feasible.
Not all coffee drinkers are alike. Some like a dark and bold cup, while others prefer a lighter roast. Here in the Digital Marketing team at Starbucks we’ve been busily transforming our website, so that when you visit us at Starbucks.com, finding the coffees in our collection you’re sure to love is a cinch.
In conjunction with the introduction of the Starbucks Roast Spectrum and the Starbucks® Blonde Roast – a lighter roast profile for coffee drinkers who like a milder cup – our coffees are now classified by our roast profile: Starbucks® Blonde, Medium and Dark. If Pike Place® Roast is your preferred brew, for example, browsing our medium roast coffees might lead you to your next favorite.
