These limited-edition items will be exclusively available only from 2PM to 8PM today – December 01, 2017, at Starbucks 6750 on Ayala Avenue, where the Seattle brand first opened its doors and started brewing in December 4, 1997 catering to coffee lovers of Makati City. It is also at this point when the Philippines became the third market, outside of North America, where Starbucks grew its business.

This month, the coffee brand relives these memories with a celebration for its 20th year, beginning with the release of a special collection and rare coffee beans that traces the growth of Starbucks.
