Starbucks -- Summer '08 Edition, #1

Starbucks needs no introduction. With hundreds (I’m not sure if thousands yet) of branches worldwide, in the last 10 years or so, it has become one of the leading players in the new premium-luxury coffee category.

What makes Starbucks so special here? Well, in Asia, Starbucks releases certain drinks that are not available in the West. Last year, there was the Azuki Frappuccino.

Here, I give you the Mango Passionfruit Frappuccino! It’s one this summer’s newest drinks! And, on yet another hot day like today, this was the perfect drink to cool down with.

Mango Passionfruit Frappuccino, Grande

** 510 yen (tax incld). **

It’s deliciously refreshing!
