Hi, my name is Teri and I currently work in Global Learning at the Starbucks Support Center in Seattle.
Sometimes I just want to shout from the rooftops about how much I love Starbucks commitment to people and community!
This really hit home for me when I was privileged enough to visit the coffee growing region of Costa Rica. I got to hear first hand from the farmer how working with Starbucks truly changes lives. The locals call it the “Starbucks Phenomenon”…REALLY, I am not making this up!
Café Estima Blend® is just one example of how we help make our planet a better place to live, help preserve the natural environment for future generations and promote economic stability within coffee growing communities. This coffee shows Starbucks efforts in purchasing ethically sourced and responsibly grown coffees, an important component in our larger integrated approach to purchasing coffee.
Specially formulated and roasted with versatility in mind, Café Estima Blend® works great in an espresso machine, drip brewer or coffee press. It is a smooth blend of washed Latin America and Africa beans with a consistent and pleasing mouth feel that pairs well with nuts, cocoa and caramel.
Taste this coffee on your next trip to Starbucks (and enjoy it with a Rich Toffee Pecan Bar. YUM!) You will feel good knowing that you are helping to support the environment, coffee farmers and their communities for years to come.
