The Starbucks Experience is more than a cup of coffee. From the beginning, Starbucks has been prepared for a different company. A company that not only celebrates the rich tradition of coffee, but also brings a sense of community, a Third Place comfortable away from work and family demands. And with every cup, we strive to bring our heritage and an exceptional experience of life. Our mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit – one person, one cup and one environment at a time. We are committed to conducting our business in a positive way for the planet and for others, since the way we buy our coffee to reducing our impact on the environment and our involvement with local communities. Today, with more than 16,000 locations in North and South America, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and the Pacific, Starbucks is the leading roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world.
