To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the opening of Starbucks stores in Kyoto and Hyogo prefectures, the "Kyoto Hyogo 20th Anniversary Project" was held from November 12th to November 21st. During the period, "Kyoto Great Matcha Matcha Frappuccino" and "Hyogo Bari Choco Haito Frappuccino" will be on sale in each area.
Store employees (baristas) in Kyoto and Hyogo devise three anniversary beverages for the local people. Approximately 30,000 people from both prefectures will participate in the vote, and the most popular Beverage will appear.
"Kyoto Great Matcha Matcha Frappuccino" is an idea of Kyoto Porta West store. Based on the popular "Matcha Cream Frappuccino" from Starbucks, this cup is based on the image of Kyoto's history and tasteful temples and shrines. The contrast between white and green in the cup creates a beautiful garden, and the shades of matcha and dark mocha powder toppings express the leaves that are colored with autumn leaves.
We devised a recipe so that you can fully enjoy the taste of matcha without using milk as the base. The mellowness of whipped cream and the bittersweetness of matcha overlap.
Available at 33 Starbucks stores in Kyoto Prefecture. The price is 590 yen (excluding tax) for tall size.
"Hyogo Bari Choco is a Frappuccino" is an idea of a barista at the Himeji Minami store. The theme is the historical background of Kobe, which prospered as a gateway to culture brought in from overseas, and chocolate that you will want to eat in the cold winter. It is a "chocolate syrup" frappuccino with chocolate chips and chocolate sauce added to the chocolate base, and chocolate whipped cream, chocolate sauce and dark mocha powder. If you take a sip, you might instinctively say, "I'm gonna have chocolate!"
Available at 54 Starbucks stores in Hyogo prefecture (some stores are not available). The price is 590 yen (excluding tax) for tall size.
