Starbucks Malaysia today unveiled Starbucks Reserve® Tropicana Gardens, the largest in the market. Located in the heart of the bustling community between Kota Damansara and Tropicana Indah, the store features two bars: a main bar offering all core and seasonal handcrafted Starbucks beverages, as well as a coffee bar that offers six different brewing methods, including pour-over, Chemex®, siphon, Black Eagle espresso and Nitro Cold Brew.
The immersive coffee experience – spanning nearly 6,000 square-foot of retail space – celebrates all-things coffee. The layout of the store itself is similar to that of a coffee bean, with a large curvature and floor-to-ceiling windows that connect to a small garden and rapid transit station. The main highlight of the store is a 50-foot wide ‘Wall of Gratitude’, which features photos of more than 200 frontliners medical workers and Starbucks baristas. The mural serves as both a way to pay tribute to the people who have been fighting together against the COIVD-19 pandemic and also as a physical reminder of the events of the past year that have made Malaysians stronger and more resilient than ever.
“Over the past five years, the Starbucks Reserve® concept has brought about a catalyst of growth in the industry focusing on customer experience and passion for coffee in Malaysia. With the opening of Starbucks Reserve® Tropicana Gardens, customers can expect the same human connection and immersive coffee experience that will continue to inspire coffee passion to the community,” said Sydney Quays, Group CEO of Berjaya Food Berhad and managing director of Starbucks Malaysia & Brunei. “We are delighted to be able to open this store and celebrate the commitment, resiliency and creativity of our partners and customers in these unique times.”
