Starbucks is more than a business franchise that sells coffee and biscotti. In fact, it’s one of the most popular coffee brands in the world, and you can order Starbucks coffee through Hav-A-Cup.
The company got its start in 1971 in Seattle. The name Starbucks is an allusion to the literary masterpiece Moby Dick, named after the the Pequod’s first mate Starbuck. Starbucks owners believed the name would evoke images of the high seas romance of early coffee traders. We agree.
The essence of Starbucks coffee can be understood best by exploring its coffee beans. They grow and produce high-quality whole bean coffee that as drawn millions of coffee lovers around the world into their doors. The atmosphere in a Starbucks restaurant is laid back and ephemeral, what you’d expect in a coffee shop. I guess that’s what keeps people going back.
Along the way, Starbucks started selling its coffee in bags, allowing its fans and customers to take its product home with them. They also allow coffee services like Hav-A-Cup an opportunity to add their world class coffee to our line of commercial vending services.
