The Starbucks Story
Starbucks’ story began in 1971. Back then they were a roaster and retailer of whole bean and ground coffee, tea and spices with a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Today, they are privileged to connect with millions of customers every day with exceptional products and nearly 18,000 retail stores in 60 countries. Starbucks Mission
Our mission: to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one neighborhood at a time. Starbucks’ Coffee
We’ve always believed in serving the best coffee possible. It's our goal for all of our coffee to be grown under the highest standards of quality, using ethical sourcing practices. Our coffee buyers personally travel to coffee farms in Latin America, Africa and Asia to select the highest quality beans.
