But let's get back to the specs. Starbucks promises that customers will be greeted by a multi-sensory coffee experience in an interactive coffee and retail destination like no other. It's home to three "coffee experience bars", one of which is 88 feet long, making it the longest Starbucks coffee bar in the world.
When Shanghai's Starbucks Reserve Roastery officially opens Wednesday, customers will find a "theater of coffee", where beans are roasted and sent in copper pipes to be packaged. Customers to the tea experience bar can select a Teavana signature pure tea or blend, served either hot or iced. Using fine tea ingredients, the bar's "tea curators" will handcraft new brews through Starbucks' classic tea mixology, as well as using more surprising processes such as nitrogen and tea.
This new Shanghai store is almost 30,000 square feet, has over 100 beverages on the menu, and allows customers to participate in the first AR (augmented reality) experience from Starbucks. Each step of the way, customers unlock a virtual badge and once all badges are earned, they receive a custom Roastery filter to commemorate the moment and share on social media. There's also pricey merch for sale, such as a wooly gray cap with a "Starbucks Reserve Roastery Shanghai" patch ($55.80) and a $90 coffee press. Check it out for yourself starting December 6th.
