Starbucks gets artsy with spring bevy cups

Brittany BishopMar 13, 2017

Customers might recall the Starbucks Christmas cups controversy of 2015 that featured plain red cups with the Starbucks logo on them.

The global coffee giant has made a decision to go in a new direction with their spring cup collection, opting for a style that is every minimalists dream.

Last November, the company released a cup with a green and white design populated with cartoon people, which Chairman and CEO Howard Schultz said was meant to "represent the connections Starbucks has as a community with its partners (employees) and customers".

Starting on March 16, coffee lovers will be be able to sip on their lattes that are served in the new spring cups.

The cups will be available beginning March 16 at Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada for a limited time.

Each size gets its own cheerful design.

Cheer up! Spring is on its way. In the past, it has offered cups for the fall and summer, but never for the spring.

The bright-yellow (Venti), baby-blue (grande) and pale-green (tall) cups are the first time Starbucks has expanded on its seasonal holiday tradition.

They might be just the thing to get us past these winter doldrums.
