With summer just around the corner, we’re constantly seeking the best ways to cool down in the sweltering heat. If you’re looking to try something new, Starbucks Reserve in Japan has introduced some fascinating new drinks for the season. 

The three new drinks are called Coffee Aids. They feature a unique clear coffee brewed using a special method, which is then mixed with refreshing fruit flavours. There are three variations to choose from: Coffee Aid Cool Lime (¥990, ¥972 takeaway), Coffee Aid Lemon Tonic (¥1,040, ¥1,021 takeaway) and Coffee Aid Strawberry Breeze (¥1,040, ¥1,021 takeaway). These drinks look deceivingly like lemonade but they do have the punchy taste of coffee.

Initially available only at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery Tokyo in May, these Coffee Aids are now on the menu of 11 Starbucks Reserve stores in Tokyo, Chiba and Osaka from Friday June 10

Participating outlets include:

  • Starbucks Reserve Store Ginza Marronnier Dori
  • Starbucks Coffee Tokyo Midtown Hibiya
  • Starbucks Coffee Ginza Tsutaya
  • Starbucks Coffee Tokyo Midtown
  • Starbucks Coffee Daizawa 5-chome
  • Starbucks Coffee Ikejiri 2-chome
  • Starbucks Coffee Okusawa 2-chome
  • Starbucks Coffee Komazawa 1-chome
  • Starbucks Coffee Chapeau Funabashi South Building
  • Starbucks Coffee Lucua Osaka
  • Starbucks Coffee Namba Skyo
