Now Baking! Princi Bakery Barista – Craft cocktails, baked goods, Starbucks Coffee.

From the beginning, Starbucks set out to be a different kind of company. One that celebrates coffee, it’s rich tradition, and a feeling of connection. Continuing in our quest, we announced a partnership with Princi, a renowned boutique bakery and café founded by Rocco Princi in 1986. Known for its artisan breads created from traditional family recipes, Princi’s locations have become beloved experiences for customers across Milan and London.

Now, Starbucks brings Princi to life in Chicago in Starbucks Roastery, Reserve, and Princi Bakery locations!
