Opening Tuesday in the Chinese city is Starbucks' second Reserve Roastery, a "megastore" that is more of a mecca for coffee lovers than a traditional cafe.
'Rocco and his team's passion for handcrafted food and artisanal baked goods at Princi mirrors how I feel about our coffee, ' Mr Schultz said. Executive chairman Howard Schultz believes that appetite for top-end luxury goods in the People's Republic is transferable to coffee and predicted at the roastery's unveiling that China is on course to become the company's biggest market within a decade, according to Bloomberg. Customers can point their smartphones around the roastery for an augmented reality experience.
Starbucks first debuted the Roastery store format in 2014; much larger than a typical Starbucks store, the Roasteries showcase single-origin beans that are roasted on-site and prepared with a variety of brewing methods, from Chemex to pour-over.
Starbucks chains are viewed as upmarket destinations in China, enabling the company to extract more profits from them.
The new roastery in Shanghai is expected to enhance Starbuck's reputation as a go-to place for dates and business meetings at a time when some locals argue that the company is losing its premium branding.
Starbucks has said it plans other Roastery cafes in New York, Tokyo and Italy. At this rate, the coffee giant estimates that a new store opens ever 15 hours in China.
