The World’s Largest Starbucks in Seattle, Washington

The coffee giant we all know and love has returned to its hometown to build out the world’s largest Starbucks store to date, and it’s a thing of beauty.

Birthed at Pike Place Market in Seattle, Washington back in 1971, Starbucks has since gone on to open up over 23,000 stores across the globe. With so many stores, one would think the brand had done everything there is to do in retail coffee, but one would be wrong. The brand recently opened up a new flagship store in Seattle’s Capitol Hill, and it’s more than your typical corner coffee shop. This location has two coffee bars, an in-house kitchen, a shop, a two-story library complete with 200 books to get some reading done, and even a roasting plant where the company produces its small batch Reserve beans. The space spans 15,000 square feet over three floors, is LEED-certified, and has been described by designer Liz Muller as being a “little bit like Willy Wonka.” [Via]
