At home? You can still work from Starbucks with virtual backgrounds

Where’s your favorite Starbucks? Is it your cozy neighborhood café, with that comfy chair by the window? Or would it be a destination like a Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery, an immersive experience that showcases the journey of coffee. Or perhaps you dream of visiting a coffee farm in Costa Rica and sipping a hot cup of coffee from the terrace overlooking the lush rolling hillsides.

No matter where you are, you can feel like you are at your favorite Starbucks anytime with a new collection of virtual backgrounds ready to download for your use in any video meeting platform.


Sunrise in Jonesboro

The early morning sun streams in through the windows at the Starbucks Community Store in Jonesboro, Ga., a quiet spot for that first cup of coffee in the day with collage art pieces by local artist Marryam Moma.

Booksmart background

It’s a well-established fact that a Starbucks café is a great place for hitting the books. Join your next online study group with this background from the Starbucks store at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va, which features a one-of-a-kind collage of 34 flying books interspersed with sparkling clear glass globes.

Café as a work of art

Surround yourself with an intricate matrix of more than 2,000 wooden sticks from the iconic store near the Dazaifu Tenmangu shrine in Fukuoka, Japan. The store was created in collaboration with renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma (who also designed the exterior of the Tokyo Roastery). 

A place to connect

The company’s newest Community Store also makes a beautiful backdrop with a colorful mural by local artist Aniekan Udofia inspired by its location in the historic Anacostia neighborhood in Washington, D.C.

Evening vibes

As dusk settles in, this nighttime scene from the terrace outside the Olive Way store in Seattle casts a warm glow for a virtual happy hour, as if winking a good evening.


Journey to Hacienda Alsacia

Take a virtual trip to the lush landscapes of the Poás Volcano at the first and only Starbucks coffee farm,  Hacienda Alsacia in Costa Rica.

Drink in the view 

Unwind in the open-air café at the Hacienda Alsacia Visitor’s Center with (what else?) a cup of Hacienda Alsacia™ coffee.

A Seattle icon

You can almost smell the sea air from the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, located in a historic building not far from where the old tall ships docked in Elliott Bay. 

An afternoon on the piazza

Find a table on the leafy terrace of the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Milan outside the historic former post office in Palazzo delle Poste in the heart of the Italian city.

The world’s largest Starbucks

Sometimes, more is more. Imagine yourself inside the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Chicago, a five-story tribute to the city’s art, architecture and culture.

A Starbucks original

This is the place where it all began, the original Starbucks store at Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

Let’s meet on the patio

Feel the breeze as you pull up a chair on the patio of our store on Bainbridge Island Washington.
