Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavours.
What is behind the flavours in your cup?
We sample over 150,000 cups a year looking for the very best arabica coffees, and in the end, only about 3% of the world’s beans makes it into a bag of our coffee. Our premium coffee beans come from the world’s three main growing regions – Latin America, Africa/Arabia and Asia/Pacific – each offering its own distinctive characteristics.
Growing region characteristics
Latin American coffees tend to be clean, familiar and friendly, with flavours reminiscent of nuts or cocoa.
Coffees from Africa/Arabia are extraordinary and enticing, with floral aromas and flavours of berries and citrus.
Coffees from Asia/Pacific tend to be bold and assertive, full-bodied with earthy and herbal flavours.
We invite you to try them all, and explore the distinctive flavours in each cup.
Waking up with Seattle's Pike Place Market
Our first Starbucks opened at Seattle's Pike Place Market in 1971, and we have been fresh-roasting coffee every since. Experience what it is like to be there as the Market wakes up, and see the inspiration behind our smooth, everyday coffees.
The search for the best coffee
In our search for the very best arabica coffees, we spend a lot of time visiting farmers and growers, working with them to help improve the quality of their coffee. It is a long journey, but it is well worth it – just ask Carlos Mario, Starbucks Agronomist.
