Each chilled coffee journey begins with responsibly sourced, Fairtrade, 100% Arabica coffee. We select our beans and roast them longer and darker, true to the Starbucks philosophy - unlocking the delicious potential every sip.
Starbucks is pleased to have transitioned from plastic to paper straws on our chilled cups, as part of our ongoing efforts to reduce waste and deliver our global commitment to eliminate plastic straws.
We are committed to finding sustainable solutions without compromising on customer experience, which is why Starbucks has been undergoing testing of various paper straw options to ensure they meet our high-quality standards, in addition to supporting our sustainability goals.
Moving to sustainable sourced paper straws is one of many steps in our sustainability journey and we will continue to innovate to ensure we deliver the Starbucks Experience to our consumers while building towards a more sustainable future.
