Exceptional coffee can only come from exceptional beans.

We only use Fairtrade 100% Arabica beans in our Starbucks® Chilled Classics. At every step, we go to great lengths to make sure our beans meet the highest standard of quality, only selecting the best for each of our cups.

We go where the best beans are: up.

The best beans grow at higher altitudes. The cold nights and warm days create denser beans. And denser beans have deeper, more complex flavours. Taste them in every Starbucks Chilled Classic.


We nurture deep-rooted relationships.

The future of coffee is entwined with the future of coffee farmers. So we nurture those relationships the same way they nurture their beans. We work to get farmers a fair price and to make sure everyone in the community can benefit from the coffee industry. It leads to better livelihoods for farmers and a better cup of coffee for all of us.

We’re very picky at harvest.

We only pick coffee cherries when they are at their peak. Red, ripe and perfect. After that, we sort them over and over based on size, colour, and density to ensure the highest quality. Some people might call that obsessive. We call it great coffee.


We help each bean reach its maximum potential.

Each coffee bean requires a unique roasting formula - a balance of temperature and time - to reach its individual peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavour.

Once the beans are roasted, we brew the coffee and swirl in smooth, creamy milk, to create the authentic flavour of Starbucks in every Chilled Classic available in your local supermarket or convenience store.
