Through a partnership with Kraft Foods, Inc. From a single small store that opened in to its status as a 21st-century gourmet coffee giant, Starbucks has led a coffee revolution in the United States and beyond.
Roots in Coffee Retailing and Wholesaling Starbucks was founded in Seattle, Washington, a haven for coffee aficionados. The city was noted for its coffee before World War II, but the quality of its coffee had declined so much by the late s that resident Gordon Bowker made pilgrimages to Vancouver, British Columbia, to buy his beans there.
His point of reference for the beverage was dark, delicious coffee he had discovered in Italy. Soon Bowker, then a writer for Seattle magazine, was making runs for friends as well. When Seattle folded, two of Bowker's friends, Jerry Baldwin, an English teacher, and Zev Siegl, a history teacher, also happened to be seeking new ventures; the three banded together and literally built their first store, located in Seattle's Pike Place Market, by hand.
Siegl went to Berkeley, California, to learn from a Dutchman, Alfred Peet, who ran Peet's Coffee, which had been a legend among local coffee drinkers since Peet's approach to coffee beans became the cornerstone for Starbucks' reputation: Starbucks bought its coffee from Peet's for its first nine months, giving away cups of coffee to hook customers.
By the three founders had opened a second store in University Village and invested in a Probat roaster.
Baldwin became the young company's first roaster. By the original entrepreneurs had a solid retail business of five stores, a small roasting facility, and a wholesale business that sold coffee primarily to local restaurants.
The first of the company's growth-versus-ethos challenges came at this stage: Starbucks insisted that the shelf life of coffee is less than 14 days after roasting. As a result, they donated all eight-day-old coffee to charity. In Starbucks hired Howard Schultz to manage the company's retail sales and marketing.
While vice-president of U.To say Starbucks purchases and roasts high-quality whole bean coffees is very true. That’s the essence of what we do – but it hardly tells the whole story. Every day, we go to work hoping to do two things: share great coffee with our friends and help make the world a little better.
