On Friday, December 5, 2014, Starbucks opened the doors to an all-new coffee experience: The Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room. You'll find it at 1124 Pike Street, in Seattle, Washington. It is a place where you can experience coffee from the unroasted bean to your cup of coffee. You can watch it being roasted. You'll see the burlap sacks it comes in. You can watch it being loaded into the green coffee loading pit. You can buy it scooped at the coffee scoop bar. You can experience your coffee as a pour over, Siphon brewed, Clover-brewed, a shot of espresso, espresso beverages, and more. The experience is all about the coffee.
More Starbucks Roastery locations are coming soon: Right now, there is only one Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room. It's the location in Seattle. However, more are coming. In 2018, there will be a New York City Starbucks Roastery. Soon, there will be a Shanghai Starbucks Roastery. Stay tuned!
