Starbucks Coffee, born in 1971, took only a few years to become the benchmark of coffee lovers around the world.
In 1971, Starbucks Coffee was limited to a single coffee lounge in Seattle in the historic Pike Place Market. From this small coffee lounge, Starbucks offered some of the best coffees in the world, freshly roasted from whole grains. The name Starbucks, taken from the novel Moby Dick, evokes a high sea of legend and the maritime tradition of the first coffee traders.
In 1981, Howard Schultz (President and CEO of Starbucks) entered a Starbucks lounge for the first time, and from his first cup of “Sumatra”, he felt immediately attracted to the Starbucks he would join a year later.
In 1983, during a trip to Italy, Howard Schultz fell in love with Italian espresso bars and their ritual around coffee. He then had the idea of bringing to the United States the tradition of Italian cafes, places of conversation and exchange, a third place in some ways, halfway between home and work. He would leave Starbucks briefly to start his own chain of cafes, Il Giornale, and return in August 1987 when he bought Starbucks with the help of several local investors.
From the beginning, Starbucks chose to be a different company that not only celebrated coffee and its rich tradition but also promoted human relationships.
Their mission, to inspire and enrich the spirit with meetings, coffee after coffee, in each neighbourhood where they are located.
