The Starbucks Christmas red cup has gotten a serious makeover for 2018

Tis’ the season!

Well, hello there November – you’re looking well!

If there’s one thing we look forward to every year, it’s the festive JOY that Starbucks brings us.

Each year, as soon as Halloween is over, the coffee chain reveals its famous red cup.

They also reveal their delicious limited edition festive beverages.

As of this morning, the festive cups have arrived.

There are four this year, each with a cute little story to tell.


The “Stargyle” sweater cup takes inspiration from the stars illustrated around Starbucks stores, and those that have appeared in the company’s logo, since its founding in 1971.

 The “Espresso Houndstooth” cup features a steamy red and white design meant to capture that toasty feeling found around a fireplace.

“Festive flora” is a nod to both festive holly bushes and the coffee cherry plant, with bright red berries that represent both plants.

And the fourth cup showcases a relatively plain two-toned red design.

They have also introduced a reusable red, while stocks last!

But there’s more!

Starbucks also revealed its limited edition festive beverages, including a Caramel Brulée Latte.

It’s beginning to look A LOT like Christmas.
