Exotic, rare and exquisite, these coffees are available only for a short time, and are not to be missed. When you taste one of our gourmet coffees, you’ll have no doubt that this is some of the world's most extraordinary coffee. Discover their exquisite flavors, unique characteristics and enjoy these special beans from remarkable lands.
From the remote highlands of Papua New Guinea to the shores of the Galapagos islands, Starbucks Reserve® coffees come from exotic places. But there’s more to it. The taste in cup should give you a feeling of being transported to a unique, exclusive locale far away. There is a range of flavor that is far outside of the everyday – something exciting to be explored.
It could be the discovery of an exceptional micro-lot. An award winning coffee from an acclaimed farm. A perfect confluence of weather, soil and timing. Rare speaks to the unbelievably fleeting nature of the experience – coffees so special that they are often found in very small, unpredictable quantities.
The clarity of a single cup’s flavor – remarkable and refined. Coffees that take our breath away.
"Starbucks Reserve® coffees have been a personal labor of love for me. I get to help bring remarkable coffees that speak to the heart of what the Starbucks Reserve® name means. They represent the best of the best in terms of capturing it all in one singular experience, your cup of coffee. The selection of coffees we have shared has been diverse and complex with an array of flavors that take us to far and away places."
