The Starbucks Experience is more than a cup of coffee. From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that not only celebrated the rich tradition of coffee but that also brought a feeling of community, a comfortable third place away from the demands of work and home. And with every cup, we strive to bring both our heritage and an exceptional experience to life.

The Starbucks mission statement is more than words on a piece of paper - it's the philosophy that guides how we do business every day. Our mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit - one person, one cup, and one neighborhood at a time. We are committed to doing business in ways that are good to the earth and each other. From the way, we buy our coffee, to minimizing our environmental footprint, to being involved in local communities.

Today, with more than 31,000 retail locations in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and the Pacific Rim, Starbucks is the premier roaster and retailer of the finest coffee.

At Starbucks, we are focused on delivering the best experience to every customer at each of our locations around the world. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to work with so many communities, and we are committed to providing the Starbucks Experience while respecting the local customs and tastes of each country we operate in.
