Did you heard about the collest starbucks Coffee partnership with Alibaba ?
Just when you thought in China could not get better, the world’s largest Starbucks opens on the Nanjing Road.(Shanghai)
The new Starbucks Reserve Roastery Shanghai is the company’s most ambitious project and offers the first fully immersive coffee experience in Asia. Basically, it’s like chocolate shop Willy Wonka coffee shops. The Roastery occupies a 30,000 square foot space on Nanjing Xi Lu, which is about 15 times the size of your average Starbucks location and two times larger than the first roaster, opened in Seattle in 2014.
Inside the Wonderland caffeinated beverages, you’ll find an 88-foot-long coffee bar, a home-made bakery, and the Resistance Room, a magnificent two-story pavilion carved with over 1,000 traditional Chinese stamps .
If all that sounds a little overwhelming, Alibaba is here again to help you. Roaster visitors can use the app. And if that’s not too much for sense, you can also visit the store on Tmall and have some coffee beans right on your doorstep. Really, we live in the best of circumstances.
The ultra-giant Roastery is just the most daring part of Starbucks’ big plans for China, where every 15 hours a new location opens up. By 2020, the company hopes to have 5,000 stores in the country.
