Just for Coffee Aficionados

Caffeine enthusiasts are buzzing about the new Starbucks Reserve coffee line which will be offering the world’s rarest, most exotic and flavorful coffees. Starbucks is now offering customers a special opportunity to experience some of the most sophisticated coffees the world has to offer with the introduction of a premium, single-origin coffee line.
Galápagos San Cristóbal, the first coffee to debut under the Starbucks Reserve coffee line, is a rare coffee from the unique subtropical climate in the Galápagos Islands that produces a limited amount of coffee each year.


Galápagos San Cristóbal
For more than a century, coffee has been cultivated on the Galápagos Islands where the nuances of the unique microclimate, rich volcanic soil and equatorial sun create conditions that produce a truly extraordinary coffee. Influenced by its environment, Galápagos San Cristóbal is a medium-bodied coffee that features fresh flavors and highlights of green herbs balanced by soft cocoa and spice.
