Come to L’illa Diagonal to find your perfect cup of coffee in Starbucks Barcelona. Flavour and delicius coffe and drinks to take away or eat here!
In 1971, Starbucks began with a single Seattle coffee shop in the historic Pike Place Market. From this small cafe they offered some of the best coffees in the world, freshly roasted with whole beans. The Starbucks number, taken from the novel Moby Dick, evokes the high seas, its legend and maritime tradition of the first coffee traders.
In 1981, Howard Schultz (CEO of Starbucks®) entered a Starbucks® salon for the first time and, after his first cup of “Sumatra”, he was immediately attracted to Starbucks® and joined the company a year later.
In 1983, during a trip to Italy, Howard Schultz fell in love with Italian coffee shops and their coffee rituals. He came up with the idea of bringing to the United States the tradition of Italian cafes, places of conversation and exchange, a third place halfway between home and work. He left Starbucks® briefly to create his own chain of coffee shops, Il Giornale, and returned in August 1987, when he bought Starbucks with the help of several local investors.
Since those early days, Starbucks chose to be a different company that not only celebrated coffee and its rich tradition, but also fostered human relationships.
Their mission is to inspire and nurture the human spirit while we meet, café by café, in each of the neighborhoods where they operate.
