Starbucks Ethical Sourcing

At Starbucks, We Believe in Sourcing the Best Coffee Possible in an Ethical Manner

And it's our goal for all Starbucks coffee to be grown under the highest standards of quality, using ethical sourcing trading and responsible growing practices. We believe that the care we take in our coffee doesn’t just mean that you get a better cup of coffee, it also helps create a better future for farmers and a more stable climate for the planet.
