Starbucks Delivers: New service expands in Japan with exclusive sets

3 Comments

Ever since the coronavirus pandemic hit Japan, companies have been rethinking their business strategies, with delivery services now becoming an essential part of daily affairs. Starbucks is one such company working to improve its delivery services, and by the end of June, the chain’s new “Starbucks Delivers” program will be expanded to more than 750 stores in 34 prefectures, before being rolled out nationwide by the end of September.

▼ Starbucks has partnered with Uber Eats and Wolt, a food delivery service from Finland, to deliver Starbucks products “to as many people as possible.”

To coincide with their mass expansion, Starbucks is now offering a couple of exclusive “delivery sets” only available to delivery customers. The first set is called Very Very Matcha, which is an apt name for what it contains:

・ Iced Matcha Tea Latte (tall size) or Matcha Cream Frappuccino (tall size)

・ Matcha cream bar

・ Matcha baumkuchen

Just looking at the contents of the Very Very Matcha has us reaching for our phones to make a delivery order, especially as the Iced Matcha Tea Latte was recently given an ace review by one of our own reporters.

▼ Next up is a treat for doughnut lovers called the Three Donuts Set.

This set of doughnuts will be delivered as a seasonal set, offering three different flavors according to what’s “in season” at Starbucks. Right now, the current set contains sugar, strawberry and chocolate cream flavors.

As well as the sets, Starbucks is offering special drink customisations for delivery customers. From June 9 to July 13, the customised special will be the Strawberry Frappuccino, blended with chocolate chips.

▼ The Starbucks Strawberry Frappuccino + Chocolate Chips will be sold in a tall size only, for 691 yen.

While the contents of the sets can be purchased separately in-store, the sets themselves aren’t available to purchase outside of delivery, and they offer a discount on what you’d normally pay for the three items, with the Very Very Matcha (available from June 9 - July 13) priced at 992 yen and the Three Doughnuts (available until July 13) priced at 788 yen.

Orders can be made through the Uber Eats and Wolt apps, and there’ll be new exclusive items on the delivery menu from July 13. For those looking to unlock another secret item you can’t buy in stores, don’t forget the Chai Chocolate Frappuccino is still available for a limited time, but only via a special pre-payment system.

Nice. I actually just saw a Wolt guy on a bike in Tokyo. Recently I don't go to Starbucks at all and paying 500 yen for a coffee may be a thing of the past for me.

Reckless: just get the beans from Kaldi Coffee Farm (Italian and other exotic food importer) or similar and make your own. During the pandemic I started buying the beans and grinding them and pouring into filter by hand. Amazing coffee at around 30 yen or less a cup.

Also, Starbucks only seems to be a thing in Asia these days. Most of their drinks are full of sugar and the coffee that remains on offer is disgusting. I guess Japanese go there for the American drama / Hollywood experience....

The less of that overprocessed, artificially colored, sugar-laden gunk anyone puts their bodies the better for them. This stuff should be taxed like cigarettes and booze.
