Starbucks is a coffee chain that has a diverse range of coffees that are top-rated by consumers. It is one of the biggest coffee chains in the world and continues to grow by the day. They wanted to increase their sales and started the “bean bar.” The bean bar ultimately led to where Starbucks is today.
