Starbucks in the Jubilee building

We chose Starbucks based on its commitment to 100% ethically sourced coffee, produced in line with its Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) practices, in partnership with Conservation International. These practices have created a sustainable supply of high-quality coffee that positively impacts the lives and livelihoods of more than one million coffee farmers and their communities.
