Starbucks Mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit- one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time. We create a safe place for our partners and customers to enjoy moments of connection. Our relationships with farmers yield the highest quality coffees that we proudly serve to our customers. We are performance-driven, through the lens of humanity.
Our story began in 1971. Back then we were a roaster and retailer of whole bean and ground coffee, tea, and spices with a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market.
