Starbucks to open Luxury Tasting Rooms for Fancy Coffee
You’re stopping at Starbucks on the way to yoga, work or a movie? Who isn’t!
But you’re heading out, just, to Starbucks? What!
Starbucks is launching a luxury outlet where customers can come in just to ‘taste’ coffee. Not just any coffee, mind you: Fancy Coffee. And if you’re thinking, “I still get to have the entire cup right? It’s not going to be on a teaspoon? ” Oh, yes you do. At $6 a cup, you can!
“This Roastery is the fulfillment of a decade-long dream — an homage to our relentless pursuit of coffee innovation that will create for our customers the most immersive, sensory demonstration of how we source, roast and craft the finest coffee from around the world,” said Howard Schultz, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Starbucks.
The 15,000-square foot roaster, which will be debuting in Seattle soon, will act as the “Willy Wonka factory of coffee,” where you can watch coffee ideas being invented and produced, while your $6 cup of coffee will be made from beans right before your eyes. (Source: Daily Meal)
