To celebrate Starbucks 50th Anniversary, Starbucks is inviting customers to bring in a clean, reusable cup into participating café locations across Canada on National Coffee Day (September 29th) and get a free cup of Pike Place Roasted brewed coffee.
Pike Place was named after the location of the original store in Seattle's Pike Place Market that opened in 1971, and is Starbucks signature medium roast coffee served in stores everyday around the world.
If you've never had it, Pike Place Roast is a smooth, easy-to-drink cup of coffee that is so consistent and harmonious that no single characteristic dominates or disappears. It offers cocoa and nutty notes that immediately remind the drinker why they love coffee.
On National Coffee Day, as well as every day, Starbucks encourages its customers to bring their own reusable cup to help reduce single-use cup waste. Starbucks resumed accepting personal reusable cups in Canadian cafés last month since the onset of the pandemic with a new contactless process. Reducing waste and shifting away from single-use packaging are important aspects in supporting the company's global aspiration of a resource-positive future.
So this National Coffee Day on September 29th head on over to your local Starbucks and enjoy yourself a delicious cup of "free" coffee!
