The new café, located at Haggatt Hall St. Michael, will welcome local customers beginning July 30.

Customers will enjoy the iconic Starbucks coffeehouse experience alongside Starbucks signature handcrafted beverages prepared by passionate baristas, and locally-sourced menu options including sandwiches, wraps and juices.

“We are honored to have the opportunity to bring the unparalleled Starbucks Experience to customers in Barbados, our 10th market in the Caribbean, in partnership with Caribbean Coffee Traders Limited,” said Ricardo Rico, General Manager, Starbucks Latin America and the Caribbean.

CCTL, a consortium led by Margaritaville Caribbean Group and Adam Stewart in his private capacity, through its sub-licensee Caribbean Coffee Baristas (Barbados) Ltd., will be the operating licensee of Starbucks® retail stores in Barbados, leveraging more than 25 years of retail and hospitality experience within the Caribbean region.

Barbados is the fifth market where CCTL operates Starbucks retail stores, in addition to locations in Jamaica, Turks and Caicos, the Cayman Islands and Panama. Together, CCTL and Starbucks plan to open more stores in the coming years, with a shared commitment towards creating opportunities and delivering a unique customer experience.

“We are thrilled to introduce the Starbucks brand on the beautiful island of Barbados,” shared Ian Dear, Founding Partner of CCTL and CEO of Margaritaville Caribbean Group.

In addition to ample indoor and outdoor seating, Starbucks first store in Barbados features a unique design and convenient pick-up window for customers on the go. Plans to offer customers a convenient way to place and pay for their order online, in advance of their visit, and pick it up at their earliest convenience at the store’s designated pick-up window are also underway.
