And consider your pumpkin spice latte forgotten - at what we're calling the Starbucks of the future, "eight highly trained Chinese coffee roasters will be roasting unique, small-lot Reserve coffee which Starbucks sources from more than 30 countries around the world, including China's Yunnan Province".
Customers can also utilize the Roastery app to view digital menus and learn about Starbucks' various brewing methods. Once they hold their phone up to it, however, they can see inside the cask as newly roasted beans drop down inside - thanks to augmented reality.
Coils of long copper pipes crisscross the ceiling, carrying coffee beans from the Copper Cask to the main bar. One of the key features of the store is the ceiling, which is made of 10,000 handmade wooden hexagon-shaped tiles, inspired by the locking of an espresso shot on an espresso machine.
"And it looks so wonderful here, many people will come just to look".
At the Shanghai site, two huge black cast iron ovens churn out more than 80 different freshly baked products a day from focaccia sandwiches with real deal Parma ham and Italian mozzarella, to sinful desserts.
There's also a coffee library and the option of three "tasting journeys" to highlight the roastery's food and beverage offerings.
China has been crucial for Starbucks since SSSG (same-store sales growth) in China was 8% in fiscal 4Q17 compared to 2% in the rest of the world.
Sounding more and more like a coffee-themed amusement park, customers can also use their phones to enhance their experience once they've gotten their caffeine fix - "All along the way, customers can point their mobile devices around the Roastery for even more moments of discovery as they immerse themselves in the augmented reality (AR) experience". The experience brings to life information about the Starbucks bean-to-cup story.
The cafe spans 2,700 square meters (30,000 square feet) - almost half the area of a soccer field - and is the company's second Starbucks Reserve Roastery, a larger type of store featuring premium coffees, teas, and coffee-infused beer along with a personalised barista service.
"It's obvious to us that the holding power of China for Starbucks is going to be much more significant than the holding power of the U.S.", Howard Schultz, the founder and Chairman of the company, said on Tuesday. Along the way, customers collect virtual badges and once they've earned all of them, they'll receive a custom Roastery social media filter to share. According to agency reports, a Starbucks opens in China every 15 hours.
