Starbucks Corp. is set to open its Reserve Roastery in New York on Dec. 14.
The 23,000-square-foot site on Ninth Avenue marks the coffee shop's fourth roastery and its second in the U.S. The site joins locations in Seattle, Shanghai and Milan, with future openings coming to Tokyo and Chicago in 2019, according to a Dec. 13 news release.
In addition to a working roastery that small-batch roasts rare coffees, the site hosts a cocktail bar and Italian bakery Princi.
The coffee giant's CEO Kevin Johnson added that the roastery serves as a brand amplifier and innovation platform for Starbucks.
In May, Starbucks said it plans to double its store count in China by 2022.
