  • Starbucks Japan Announces Calligraphy-Inspired Goma Goma Goma Latte & Frappuccino®

    19.December.2018 | FOOD

    Starbucks Japan is starting up its second “STARBUCKS® JAPAN WONDER PROJECT” on December 26 which aims to promote the wonderful characteristics and elements of Japanese culture.

     

    The event it is looking to is a tradition observed on New Year’s Day called Kakizome, or “first calligraphy of the year.” This has inspired two drinks to lead customers into a happy new year: the Goma Goma Goma Frappuccino® that calls to mind ink and paper with its combination of black and white and the Goma Goma Goma Latte that fuses a harmonious fragrance of sesame seeds and espresso that warms you up on a cold winter’s day.

     

    Kakizome is an event that originates in the old Japanese imperial court where one would prepare their ink in the morning and write a poem while facing that year’s lucky direction. The tradition today begins on January 2 in which people write their aims, goals and wishes for the new year stroke by stroke. The paper is then thrown into a fire in the middle of January as it is said the person will be able to write a more fair hand by doing so.

    The Goma Goma Goma Frappuccino® is made with a white Frappuccino® body and combined with a sesame seed sauce to create a beautiful and very different design. The whipped cream on top is topped with black, white and gold sesame seeds for added crunch. It’s also drizzled in honey which goes perfectly with the seeds. The beverage’s bright and shiny appearance looks towards a hopeful 2019.

     

    The hot Goma Goma Goma Latte combines sesame seeds and espresso with milk for a touch of sweetness, bringing together both a Japanese and Western taste.

Pour the lukewarm water  over the yeast and mix everything with a wooden spoon. When everything is combined add the unsalted butter and knead with your hands. Roll into a ball and leave to ferment.

  • Christmas Tree Inspired Frappuccino to be Released at Starbucks Japan

    29.November.2018 | FOOD

    Starbucks Japan will release its third set of drinks in an ongoing series of Christmas themed beverages at the coffee chain. The new Pistachio Christmas Tree Frappuccino® cold beverage and Pistachio Christmas Tree hot beverage will be released on December 5.

     

    Christmastime is fasting approaching in Japan―the lights sparkle and illuminate the streets and the holiday season vibe is growing. Seeing Christmas trees decorating people’s living rooms and dotted around outside is sure to elicit a mutual excitement with many people.

    Pistachio Christmas Tree Frappuccino®: Tall ¥590 (Pre-Tax) *Tall size only

    Pistachio Christmas Tree: Short ¥450 / Tall ¥490 / Grande ¥530 / Venti® ¥570 (Pre-Tax)

     

    Starbucks have tried to capture that same feeling with their upcoming new Christmas tree-inspired drinks made with roasted pistachios and a rich, fragrant pistachio sauce. Topping both drinks is a red ribbon raspberry sauce. At the bottom of the frappuccino is a white and snowy whipped cream along with roasted academia nuts for added texture. The whipped cream too is mixed with the pistachio sauce. Its appearance truly reminds one of a Christmas tree.

     

    The hot milk in the Pistachio Christmas Tree intensifies the flavour of the pistachios while warming both your heart and body. The Frappuccino® version is perfect with all kinds of customisation just like the hot beverages. It’s best enjoyed by creating your own when ordering – it’s like decorating a Christmas tree with ornaments.

     

    The recommended customisation with the hot pistachio drink is an espresso shot. It creates an irresistible harmony with the roasted texture of the macadamia nuts and the texture of the pistachios. For the frappe, try the almond toffee syrup. It draws out the flavours of both types of nuts and creates a dessert-like taste. You should also try soy milk with either of these new drinks as it results in a richer flavour and highlights the pistachios even more.

     

    Christmas is almost upon us so why not celebrate with one of Starbucks’ special seasonal selections?
