To Commemorate International Coffee Day, Starbucks in Indonesia Build Its Foundation on Three Key Pillars.


Every year on October 1, people all around the world celebrate International Coffee Day, a time to come together, celebrate, learn about, and be inspired by one of the most popular beverages in the world. When we bonded over coffee with more than 5,000 partners (employees) dispersed throughout Indonesia more than fifty years ago, Starbucks altered how people enjoy coffee and reimagined what was possible.

“For Starbucks, International Coffee Day brings partners (employees), customers, and communities together to celebrate our mission of endless possibilities. In Indonesia itself, we will celebrate by prioritizing the 3 main pillars of Starbucks: PEOPLE, PLANET, COFFEE,” said Anthony McEvoy, leader of PT Sari Coffee Indonesia, the official license holder of the Starbucks brand in Indonesia.

“For People, we will hold a simultaneous coffee tasting at all Starbucks outlets in Indonesia which will also involve customers on October 1st, 2023, at 13:10. “Wherever you are, we invite all customers to join and enjoy our tradition together over a cup of coffee,” he added. “For Planet, in accordance with what we conveyed at the 21st anniversary celebration of Starbucks in Indonesia last May, we will reaffirm our commitment by donating 48 thousand coffee seeds to coffee farmers in West Java.” “As for Coffee, we will showcase Starbucks as a coffee expert in the industry by launching whole beans that we roast ourselves in Bali, Starbucks® Bali Batur Volcano, as well as launching a new campaign, Coffeenental,” explained Anthony.

Coffeenental is taken from the words “Coffee” and “Continental”. This is Starbucks’ latest campaign in Indonesia which will show how coffee from all continents can embrace the spirit of diversity. This theme comes to celebrate the rich world coffee heritage demonstrated through a series of Coffeenental merchandise that highlights whole beans from Indonesia (Java, Sumatra, Bali, Sulawesi) and beverages made from recipes representing various continents (Asia-Aceh Indonesia, Europe- Germany, Latin America-Cuba, Africa-Algeria). This series of Coffeenental merchandise and drinks can be enjoyed by Starbucks Rewards members from 30 September – 1 October and customers throughout Indonesia starting from 2 October 2023.

Starbucks has a long commitment of investing in the communities it serves worldwide. Celebrating its 21st anniversary, Starbucks has expanded to more than 50 cities in Indonesia, with more than 5,500 partners who are proud to wear the green apron. And today, the company offers many ways for customers to connect with their loved ones over a high-quality cup of Starbucks coffee. In its mission to make a difference in the lives of those connected with Starbucks, the company also strives to make a positive impact in the communities it serves.

In 2020, Starbucks opened its first Community Store in the Jakarta Tanah Abang neighborhood, to create educational opportunities for young people in Tanah Abang, followed by the Starbucks Creative Youth Entrepreneurship Program (SCYEP) in supporting youth empowerment. At the end of 2022, Starbucks also opened its first Signing Store in Indonesia to provide an inclusive work environment that is unified in Sign Language.
