Starbucks opens at The Pearls in Umhlanga

An exciting new Starbucks South Africa experience has launched at the Pearls in Umhlanga. Widely considered the most prestigious address in KZN, The Pearls luxury boutique mall is a flawlessly iconic slice of the world-famous Golden Coast — a perfect new home for the iconic Starbucks experience.

This pristine new Starbucks boasts a beautifully appointed private patio space with Instagrammable views of the Durban coastal skyline. This exclusively exotic spot is perfumed by Starbucks quality coffee roasts and the refreshing salty scents of the sea for a uniquely memorable world-class social experience with friends and family.

The brand’s wide range of premium coffees, warm and friendly service, the speciality iced Frappuccinos and other iced beverages promise to be a big hit with local and international visitors to this award-winning tourist spot.

The stunning new Starbucks, run by the UK-Starbucks-trained but proudly local Durbanite, Varny Govender, features the full range of Starbucks hot and cold beverages and a selection of delicious treats, including brownies, macaroons, and the famous Chocolate Brownie.

Varny and her team invite customers to visit and enjoy their handcrafted seasonal beverages, including the super-popular Pumpkin Spiced Latte, the indulgently delicious Salted Caramel Latte, crafted from salted caramel-infused milk and espresso shots, or the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate, a decadent blend of salted caramel-infused milk and Mocha sauce, topped with whipped cream and caramel drizzle.

This latest super-stylish Starbucks store is a world-class opportunity to kick back and relax or pull in and work in splendid surroundings brimming with WIFI and plug points. And while you’re there, ask Varny to brew up her personal fav’, “I go for our traditionally brewed filter coffee, simply because of the taste. The superior quality of our coffee is unmatched!”
