Since opening our doors in 1971 we have loved the unique coffees from Ethiopia. And from customer requests it’s clear you enjoy it just as much. This is why we’re so excited to reintroduce Ethiopia coffee, with its velvety-soft texture and hints of citrus and dark cocoa.
This coffee combines beans from different growing regions allowing us to not only bring you the amazing coffee you’ve been requesting, but to also celebrate and pay tribute to the country known as the birthplace of coffee. (The first coffee trees are traced back to Africa’s Great Rift Valley, grown as early as 800 AD*.)
Ethiopians revere their coffee. It’s a daily ritual shared among family and friends, following distinct steps and often lasting several hours. To honor this timeless tradition we invite you to join us at any Starbucks for National Coffee Day, Sunday, September 29 and enjoy a sample. As they say in Ethiopia “Buna-Buna Tetu”—come get coffee.
To past devotees and new fans alike … come get Ethopia coffee and tell us what you think!
