1 Types of coffee beans

Coffee beans include “Arabica” and “Robusta”.

“Arabica” is laborious to cultivate and yields low but it is a variety with a gorgeous aroma and good flavor.

“Robusta” is relatively easy to cultivate and can be harvested in large quantities at one time. However, it is bitter and astringent, so it is cheaply exchanged for canned coffee or instant coffee.

The coffee beans used in Starbucks are 100% Arabica.

Arabica beans are cultivated at high altitudes of 900 to 1500 meters. Therefore, it must continue to withstand the heat and cold, and its harsh environment brings out a sophisticated taste.



2 Enjoy coffee at home

Have you ever brewed coffee at home? Instant coffee and packed drip are very easy, but I think it’s a luxury time to enjoy coffee brewed from beans with a little time and effort.

At Starbucks, beans are sold in 250-gram bags, but can be purchased in increments of 100 grams or more and 10 grams. You can enjoy the varieties you care about and the varieties for a limited time little by little.

You can also grind beans for free at the store. The clerk will teach you how to grind beans according to your home equipment, so you can buy the most delicious beans.

4 What is food pairing?

Do you know ”food pairing” ?

”Food pairing” is to select foods that are compatible with the coffee based on the characteristics and roasting method of each coffee bean.

For example, if you eat coffee that goes well with chocolate and chocolate together, the flavor of cacao will be more pronounced and will spread throughout your mouth.

“Ethiopian” beans produced in Africa are characterized by strong acidity and citrus cocoa flavor. Therefore, it goes well with chocolate scones. This combination is my favorite.

By the way, if you order at the store, you can choose between a mug and a paper cup. I like mugs that are more fragrant.

It may seem a little difficult, but it may feel like the world has expanded.
Check the Starbucks homepage or ask the clerk, You will surely find your favorite food pairing.



Enjoying coffee feels like an adult world, but there are endless ways to enjoy it with sweet sweets, add milk, and more.
