ABOUT US

Our mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit - one person, one cup. and one neighborhood at a time

Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better. It was true when the first Starbucks opened in 1971 and it’s just as true today.

About Us

It happens millions of times each week – a customer receives a drink from a Starbucks barista - but each interaction is unique.

It's just a moment in time - just one hand reaching over the counter to present a cup to another outstretched hand.

But it's a connection.

We make sure everything we do honors that connection – from our commitment to the highest quality coffee in the world, to the way we engage with our customers and communities to do business responsibly.

From our beginnings as a single store nearly forty years ago, in every place that we've been, and every place that we touch, we've tried to make it a little better than we found it.
