FOOD: Starbucks Ready Brew now in Manila!


I'd die for these ready brews! Thank you Starbucks for making the Philippines the second country (next to Japan) in Asia to enjoy the Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew.

Before we only have the 3-in-1's, I admit I am a sucker for those sachets but I am kinda embarrassed to let others see me using it. Just says I don't know how to make my own coffee.

Put the Starbucks logo on anything and you get a stylish, up another level, product. I'd be proud to have not one but several Starbucks 3 in 1 (if I may call it that) anytime! More than 10 million sticks have already been sold in Starbucks stores throughout Japan.

I say, just wait 'til the Pinoy caffeine addicts including me and you, get our hands and mugs on them Starbucks Ready Brew. I will find these sticks handy whenever I visit desserts shop which is quiet often, yet most of them don't have a decent cup of joe. Just ask for hot water, voila - Starbucks wherever.

“We know there is a significant opportunity in the Philippines marketplace for Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew since nearly 100 percent of retail coffee sales come from instant coffee*,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and ceo, Starbucks Coffee Company. “We know rapid innovation for Starbucks VIA® and creating opportunities to further increase awareness and trial of Starbucks VIA® broadens our overall customer base both in the U.S. and in international markets.”

Dear Mr. Schultz, please send me a VIA Bearista :)
