Starbucks brews up cold speciality

first_imgStarbucks has today launched Cold Brew in three central London stores, ahead of a roll-out to 30 sites. The new-format drink, which involves the process of steeping coffee grounds in cool filtered water for 24 hours, is now available in Kingsway, Great Portland Street and St Martin’s Lane. The arrival begins the roll-out of the drink and Starbucks is the first coffee chain in the UK to bring the new-style drink to the high street.To create the pure, high-quality iced beverage, baristas will use coffee beans – currently the Guatemala Antigua variety – to brew small individual batches at each store.Mark Fox, chief executive of Starbucks UK, said: “Inspired by the US West Coast, we’re proud to bring Starbucks Cold Brew to the UK. We love bringing new experiences to Starbucks customers and trialling new initiatives that get our fans excited.“We have always offered a wide range of products to make sure all of our customers can find their favourite coffee at Starbucks. As a result of our coffee innovation, it’s great to be able to bring a new coffee experience to existing customers and newcomers alike.”The launch of Cold Brew coincides with the London Coffee Festival, where Starbucks is showcasing its future design direction influenced by its Seattle Roastery. Cold Brew can be customised with flavoured syrup for sweetness, extra milk and a foam milk topping for a creamy drink.last_img read more

Indeed, Spurs have won four of the last six, all with a 2-1 scoreline.The teams have met twice already this season. In September, in the Capital One Cup the Gunners beat Spurs 2-1 with Mathieu Flamini netting twice. But when they played each other at the Emirates Stadium Harry Kane scored the opener for the visitors before Kieran Gibbs scored what proved to be the equaliser.Kane has scored Spurs’ last three league goals against Arsenal; he also netted both goals in the 2-1 win over the Gunners in this game last season.Spurs miss Moussa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen. Arsenal, meanwhile, have lost goalkeeper Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny for the derby and are still without Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who could all be missing for most, if not, the rest of the season.last_img read more
