Coffee business Starbucks Reserve Tata Nullore Estates
Starbucks customers in the U.S. will be able to experience a rare, small-lot coffee from the Tata Nullore Estates located in the Coorg region of India.
The brand - Starbucks Reserve Tata Nullore Estates - will be the first coffee from India to be roasted at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room. It will only be available at Starbucks' Seattle location later this year.
Starbucks also plans to expand the availability of Himalayan Mineral Water, bottled by Tata Global Beverages, beyond Starbucks stores in India to Singapore later this year.
Further, Starbucks will increase its coffee roasting capacity for supplying its stores in India. Starbucks has more than 80 stores across six cities in the world's second-most populous country. ■
