Exceptional coffee can only come from exceptional beans.
Starbucks Arabica beans are different from regular Arabica beans. At every step, we go to great lengths to make sure our beans meet the highest standard of quality. How do we do it? Glad you asked
We go where the best beans are: up.
The best beans grow at higher altitudes. The cold nights and warm days create denser beans. And denser beans have deeper, more complex flavours. Taste them in every cup of Starbucks coffee.
We’re for the good of all coffee
So if we can help a farmer grow better beans, we will. Any farmer, anywhere. To that end, we have farmer support centres on four continents where our agronomists test soils, examine samples and provide advice, free, to any coffee farmer who asks.
We nurture deep-rooted relationships
The future of coffee is entwined with the future of coffee farmers. So we nurture those relationships the same way they nurture their beans. We work to get farmers a fair price and to make sure everyone in the community can benefit from the coffee industry. It leads to better livelihoods for farmers, and a better cup of coffee for all of us.
We’re very picky at harvest.
We taste – again and again and again.
