The Starbucks Reserve™ coffees grant customers the opportunity to discover the unique flavors of these exotic locations.
Galápagos San Cristóbal
For more than a century, coffee has been cultivated on the Galápagos Islands where the nuances of the unique microclimate, rich volcanic soil and equatorial sun create conditions that produce a truly extraordinary coffee. Influenced by its environment, Galápagos San Cristóbal is a medium-bodied coffee that features fresh flavors and highlights of green herbs balanced by soft cocoa and spice.
