  1. Starbucks SBUX 0.27% is reportedly planning to invest big in sustainability. The company is selling $500 million worth of bonds with the express purpose of funding eco-friendly practices, according toSecurities and Exchange Commission filings. The 10-year senior notes have an interest rate of 2.45%, which is 0.74% higher than government bonds. The Huffington Post reports that this is the first time Starbucks is specifically asking investors to fund sustainability efforts. Proceeds from the sale of these bonds are estimated to be about $495.6 million. That money will allow Starbucks to buy coffee from farmers who adhere to Coffee and Farmer Equity Practices, which are principles established by Starbucks and Conservation International ensuring that coffee is grown and sourced responsibly. The standards apply to both working conditions and treatment of workers as well as environmental conservation. The half-a-billion dollars will also help Starbucks develop and operate farmer support centers and agronomy research and development centers. Additionally, the money will help subsidize the coffee chain’s Global Farmer Fund program, which provides farmers with loans to help them manage risk and strengthen their businesses. Starbucks spokesperson Linda Mills told Fortune that the company will have more to share about this initiative after the market closes on Monday.

  2. The food display looks enticing to you doesn't it? Well... it also is lickable and a temptation that some dogs also find irresistible Think twice before wrapping your fingers around that sandwich or wrap.. And no... this wasn't a "service dog" Public Health in restaurant establishments in the United States has plummeted over the past few years unfortunately. People years ago would have been horrified by this. But isn't a dogs tongue supposedly cleaner than a humans? (why do I doubt this wives tale?)
  3. Today, Starbucks (+0.78%) is opening its first location in Italy—a "Reserve Roastery" in Milan—as an homage to the very country that inspired its espresso-fueled vision (and ~28,000 stores worldwide). But this isn't your corner coffeehouse Look back at the picture. That's what the very upscale, 25,000-square-foot Milan Roastery looks like. Plus, it offers locally roasted coffee from 30 countries alongside freshly baked pizzas and pastries...and alcoholic drinks so you won't miss your after-work aperitivo. There's a backstory: Starbucks Chairman Emeritus Howard Schultz first traveled to Milan in 1983...when there were only four Starbucks locations, all of them in Seattle. Italy's cafe culture inspired him to "build a company with the same nucleus of warmth, community, and human connection," Starbucks wrote in a release literally called, "Starbucks comes to Italy: An opera verismo in seven acts." Italy worked its magic Now, Starbucks opens a coffee shop chock full of human connection (if someone writing your name on a cup counts) every four hours on average, and it clocked in $22.4 billion in net revenue last year. This is just its third Roastery (after Seattle and Shanghai). But Starbucks plans to open Roasteries in New York, Tokyo, and Chicago this year and next. FWIW: The Milan Roastery might not be an easy sell for the proud Italian coffee-lover. Starbucks will charge more than 3x the going price for espresso and cappuccino in Milan (at least visitors from NYC will be used to overpaying). Already, one consumer group has filed a complaint over prices. Plus, Italians are deeply protective of their coffee culture. Good luck defending why your "grande" size is only a medium. So why open the Roastery? Starbucks is trying to expand abroad as U.S. sales stagnate (and force store closures). In China, for example, Starbucks opens a new location every 15 hours. And expanding its global footprint is as important as ever—$13 billion of Starbucks's $73 billion valuation is tied to opening stores over the next few years, per Forbes. h/t Daily Roast
  4. For many years, nondairy users had one option at Starbucks: soy. Last year, coconut milk randomly materialized, but the chain’s never given almond milk any serious love. Until now: According to a press announcement, America’s most popular dairy alternative will finally hit stores nationwide next month. The rollout will occur in two stages: First, on September 6 at cafés in five regions — New York, Northern California, the Pacific Northwest, the Northeast, and the Mid-Atlantic. Then, by the end of the month, it will expand to all Starbucks locations. The chain says it will cost 60 cents extra and has “light almond notes without any added flavoring.” Veg News, an obvious proponent of this dairy-free addition, says a memo to employees noted that a My Starbucks Idea proposal (submitted back in 2011) begging the company to add almond milk is now up to almost 100,000 votes, making it one of the “most-requested ideas of all time.” (Starbucks has cited allergy concerns in the past to explain its foot-dragging.) In keeping with the theme of Japan always getting all of the cool stuff first, Starbucks’s locations over there have been offering almond milk for more than a year now. It’s even been the centerpiece of several promo drinks, suggesting it might be one way to help American stores reverse flagging sales if done right. http://www.grubstreet.com/2016/08/almond-milk-finally-arrives-at-starbucks-next-month.html
  5. This Thursday, September 29, is National Coffee Day in the United States. In honor of everyone’s favorite morning beverage and the farmers who make its consumption possible, Starbucks has announced it will donate one coffee tree to a farmer in need for every cup of Mexico Chiapas coffee sold Thursday. The Coffee Day initiative is part of Starbucks’s broader commitment to help wipe out coffee rust—a fungus threatening coffee trees in Latin America. For the last year, Starbucks has donated a coffee tree for every bag of coffee purchased in participating stores in America and Mexico. Already, the company has raised enough money to plant 18 million rust-resistant coffee trees, 10 million of which have already been delivered to farmers. They hope that by extending their “One Tree for Every Bag” commitment to cups of coffee for National Coffee Day, they will be able to meet their goal of donating 20 million trees by the end of 2016. “I have seen firsthand the devastation coffee rust has had on farmers. The initial distribution of these coffee trees has already had a positive impact with potential to help farmers and their families for years to come,” said Starbucks Global Coffee executive vice president Craig Russell in a statement. “This is the perfect way to have our customers and the coffee community become part of the solution on National Coffee Day.” http://mentalfloss.com/article/86755/every-chiapas-coffee-sold-thursday-starbucks-will-donate-tree
  6. Starbucks has dedicated one of its outlets in Malaysia to hiring deaf baristas — a first for the company globally. The outlet in the Bangsar district currently has 10 deaf baristas, and three hearing staff, Starbucks told Mashable on Wednesday. If you don't know sign language, the baristas are ready to take orders written on menu cards. Each customer is assigned a number, which will flash on a screen when their order is ready. The Seattle coffee company worked with the Society of Interpreters for the Deaf (SID) in Malaysia to train and hire the newer baristas, it said. The shift manager at the Bangsar outlet, Muhammad Aizad Bin Ariffin, has been with the company for three years, and was recently promoted. He said he's working toward enrolling under the company's Coffee Master programme eventually — Starbucks' advanced coffee expert course. Starbucks has launched other social good initiatives in the past, including a commitment made several years ago to hire military veterans. In February, a barista in Virginia made headlines for her gesture to learn American Sign Language to better serve a deaf customer that frequented her outlet. http://mashable.com/2016/07/20/starbucks-deaf-malaysia/#FbfUbznUegqB
  7. Usually when we're psyched about something new happening at Starbucks, it has to do with the latest latte or Frappuccino flavor. (See: the Caramelized Honey Latte.) But today brings an exciting update from the coffee chain that has nothing to do with an upcoming menu item. According to a press release, Starbucks employees wanted to figure out a way to donate the extra ready-to-eat meals that they'd otherwise be throwing away at the end of each day. So the company is meeting the call to action with a new program dubbed FoodShare. Within the next year, through an existing collaboration with Food Donation Connection and a new partnership withFeeding America, Starbucks plans to donate millions of meals to food banks nationwide, including breakfast sandwiches, paninis, Bistro Boxes, and salads. "This program was inspired by our partners [Starbucks employees], who challenged us to make a change and find a way to put our unsold food to good use. Our aim is that by this time next year, partners in our U.S. company-operated stores will be able to add five million nourishing, ready-to-eat meals to the pastries they already donate today," Jane Maly, brand manager for Starbucks Food team, told Refinery29 via email. Starbucks is currently setting up the new system whereby 7,600 American locations will give their leftover food to those in need. The company will scale the program over the next five years, with the goal of hitting 50 million donated meals anually by 2021.

  8. Starbucks will be using TurboVote to make it easy for all U.S. employees to register to vote from both computers and mobile devices. | Getty Coffee company Starbucks is urging its American employees to register to vote, chairman and CEO Howard Schultz wrote in a letter on Monday. “For decades we’ve created meaningful connections with our customers and served communities,” he wrote in the letter to 150,000 U.S. employees. “We’re about to answer these questions once again by addressing a problem that many partners have identified as extremely important: increasing voter registration and participation across America.” Story Continued Below The company will be using TurboVote to make it easy for all U.S. employees to register to vote from both computers and mobile devices. Schultz said that he got the idea from a February forum with employees in Brooklyn when he asked what the company could do to emphasize citizenship. One shift supervisor told him that he should “make people aware of the importance to vote” which “would be phenomenal.” “Our intention is nonpartisan, and it is simple: by helping to increase voter registration and participation, we believe more people will have an opportunity to make their voices count,” Schultz, who’s donated to Democrats in the past, wrote in the letter, provided first to POLITICO. Schultz, who wrote a New York Times op-ed last August saying he wouldn’t run for president, has tried to re-orient the company toward being more activist, hiring more veterans, paying college tuition for employees to enroll at Arizona State University, and launching a dialogue on race last year called “Race Together,” which got mocked online. This is not the first time Starbucks has promoted voting; they gave customers who said they voted on Election Day in 2008 a free cup of coffee.
