Our story began in 1971 in the US. Back then, we were a roaster and retailer of whole bean and ground coffee, tea and spices with a single store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market in the United States. Today we are privileged to welcome millions of customers through our doors every day, in more than 50 countries. In 2002 Starbucks opened its doors of our coffee roasting plant in Amsterdam which is the first roasting plant outside of the US. Our roasting plant is considered the heart & soul of our organization and the place where our coffee is roasted, packaged and distributed to our Starbucks stores in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
We create an environment that is lively, fun and has a focus on continues improvement, a place where your voice matters and where you are asked for input. We’re growing in dynamic new ways and we recognize that the right people offering their skills, ideas and expertise will enable us to continue our success in building a different type of company in the Netherlands.
