Experience Costa Rica through the eyes of a partner.
In February 2010, a group of Starbucks partners participated in an in-depth coffee origin experience in Costa Rica.
Melinda Altamirano, a district manager from southern Oregon, was one of those partners. What she saw gave her a new perspective in coffee farming – the hard work, passion and pride that goes into every pound, every cup.
“I’ve never been more proud to work for an organization, nor have I ever felt a greater responsibility to so many people,” Melinda said after her journey. “I can make a difference, and I can do it through Starbucks.”
