New Starbucks Promotion Imagines Retro Japanese Coffee Houses

A retro Japanese coffee house promotion to start the summer season
The promotion is scheduled to run from May 15th to June 18th, 2019.
(In case you're curious, 'Starbucks Coffee' in Japanese is actually written 'スターバックス コーヒー,’ which is a more modern spelling. Older coffee shops often use the kanji for coffee '珈琲' instead of the phonetic spelling 'コーヒー.')
Limited-edition menu items!
