There are many Starbucks cup designs that have been sold over the years, including tumbler, thermos and mug styles, but in Asia, a few new styles are being introduced.
Across Starbucks locations in China, Taiwan, and South Korea, a new kind of hybrid bottle-cup is being sold for the summer months. These three-piece systems have removable caps, as well as a middle opening that can be unscrewed in order to make it easy for cleaning the two separate pieces. There are several styles available, including ones with straws, as well as ones with small loops that can be used for easy carrying.
These inventive Starbucks cup designs discourage single-use plastics from being picked up in-store, while also providing a solution for consumers who don't keep a dedicated bottle brush at home.
