If Starbucks coffee is too strong for you, try making it at home at the strength you like, or ask them to add about 1/4 to 1/3 cup hot water to your cup the next time you’re there. You will probably love it as much as we do!
- Starbucks was established in 1971 in Seattle, WA in the famous Pike’s Place Market.
- Starbucks is the largest purchaser or fair trade coffee in the world. Even though all Starbucks coffee is not “Fair Trade” certified, it is all ethically sourced. They give farmers the tools and resources necessary to grow high quality coffee. They invest in the communities that produce coffee for them and pay a fair price for all of their coffees.
- Coffee can only be grown between the tropic of cancer and the tropic of Capricorn, which is called the coffee belt. Due to this fact, the only American coffee is grown in Hawaii. It is usually only available in limited quantities because it is grown on smaller farms and co-ops. It’s pretty good and we actually have Hawaii Ka’u available in the reserve line at the store in Northville, Michigan where I work!
- Starbucks only uses high quality Arabica beans that are grown at higher elevations.
- Starbucks gets the majority of the beans from Africa, Latin America, and the Asia/Pacific region.
