Say goodbye to these popular menu items at Starbucks
By Angeli Kakade, Buzz60
Starbucks is putting a halt on some of its menu items. Don't worry, you'll still be able to get your morning caramel macchiato, but you'll have to say goodbye to wine and beer.
Starbucks announced plans to end its Evening program, which sold tapas like food, wine and beer to customers in 400 Starbucks locations across the country.
Profits are up for the coffee giant, but the company plans on focusing its efforts on other programs such as increasing their lunch menu offerings since 50% of foot traffic happens after 11am, reports the Seattle Times.

Starbucks is also placing big bets on their new high end Roastery and Tasting rooms. They plan to open 20 Roasteries in the next 3 years and aim to bring serving alcohol to the roastery experience.
The company also plans on increasing their number of reserve stores, which are stores smaller than a roastery but larger than a traditional store. Reserve stores will feature beans roasting on site as well as pricier coffee. And just when people were starting to get used to the reality of a $5 cup of coffee!
