WOOP! WOOP! WOOP! WOOP!
THAT'S THE STARBUCKS ALARM AGAIN, TURDLETS. LISTEN UP!
Starbs is here to help us all on our journeys to consume so much Starbucks coffee/culture we all eventually just become Starbucks.
The 'Bux recently confirmed plans to open a Starbucks FREAKING Roastery in New York City come 2018.
Oh, you thought Starbs Roasteries were only a Seattle, Washington thing? YOU'RE DEAD WRONG, BUTT MUFFIN.
According to a press release, the new NYC Starbucks Roastery will allow customers to watch the roasting process like a sort of "coffee theater," providing time for visitors to interact with roasters and baristas so they can learn more about the sourcing, roasting and brewing of rare coffees.
HELL YES, TELL ME WHERE MY COFFEE'S FROM. LUXURY, REFINEMENT, BEANS.
The space will be designed by architect Rafael Viñoly and reside a block south of Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District, precisely 61 Ninth Ave.
COPY AND PASTE THIS INTO YOUR CALENDARS ALREADY!!!
Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz expects the roastery to be a goddamn groundbreaking moment in coffee history.
In a statement, he said,
Our Seattle Roastery experience created something that had never been done before, transforming a retail environment into something far beyond just a coffee shop and into the single-best retail experience of any kind. In New York, we want to take elements from what we originally created and build something even bigger and bolder, celebrating coffee and craft in a completely unique and differentiated way.
HEAR THAT, SEATTLE? NEW YORK'S ROASTERY, MUCH LIKE ITS RATS, ARE GONNA BE BIGGER AND MUUUUUCH FREAKING BOLDER.
SEE YOU IN 2018, THIRSTIES.
