Meet Joshua! He's a mixologist at the Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery in Seattle. “When you come in, it’s like I'm hosting you in my home.” Benefits and the opportunity for growth also surprised him, “at the end of the night, you know that you are part of a company that's invested in you, a company that wants to see you light up.”


Joshua sees mixology as a form of expression and a way to highlight unique coffees. “Mixology is about bringing these two worlds together: we start with really good coffee and add the world of alcohol.”


“The Starbucks Reserve Roastery™ redefines how people engage with coffee, it makes people invested in coffee and find out what they really dig.”

Meet Giampaolo! He is the general manager of the Milan Roastery.


The passion and the desire that Starbucks dedicates to everything it does, comes from the love for its work and for the satisfaction of its partners and customers.


Being part of Starbucks is beautiful and representing these values in the Italian market will be an immense honour for me.


I believe that making our own family and the people around you proud every day is the most satisfying success that can be achieved.


Being a leader means being an example, it means facing the problems and facing them with courage, it means being at the side of our partners every day and sharing success together. Being a leader means improving the lives of the people around you.


Starbucks for me means, that opportunity of a lifetime, the possibility of being myself and choosing who I want to be during my journey called Vita (Life in italian).

Meet Mikey! He’s a 15 year partner working as part of our fantastic Roastery team based in Seattle.


Combining his upbeat energy and coffee knowledge he provides incredible insight into the world of coffee roasting to customers.


His favorite part of the job is the challenge of dealing in such diverse and amazing coffees from around the world.

Meet Sarah! She’s been a partner at Starbucks for 17 years!


Sarah’s part of our Roastery team based in Seattle.


The Roastery really brings the company back to its roots and brings to light all of the things I really love about Starbucks. My favorite part of being here is being around the passion of all the amazing coffee nerds I get to work with!



To be a Partner
