CNNMoney.com: The world’s cheapest coffee, nearly $4 million.
The company behind the coffee is one of a handful of companies in the world to have its business in the US skyrocket.
With Starbucks’ latest launch, it is the biggest coffee company to launch in the United States since the company started in 1999.
“We are very excited about the Starbucks Coffee Roasters, and their commitment to serving quality coffee,” said Starbucks founder Howard Schultz in a statement.
Starbucks said it had bought about 1.5 million pounds of coffee beans from a third-party supplier in the last two months and had purchased additional coffee for about 1 million pounds from the company’s supply chain.
Shares of Starbucks closed higher by as much as 5 percent, or $3.16 per share.
Its shares are up about 1 percent over the past 12 months.
In the last three months, the company has grown its coffee production by about 100,000 pounds annually, Schultz said.
On Tuesday, Starbucks said it has sold more than 50 million cups of coffee globally since the launch of the new line in 2014.
As of Tuesday, the new coffee line was available in the U.S. and Canada.
This is the company that launched in 1999 and continues to provide quality coffee to the entire world, Schultz added.
While Schultz was quick to note that the coffee company is the most expensive brand to open in the past 30 years, he acknowledged that it is not the first brand to launch on a $1 billion scale.
He pointed to the $2.5 billion purchase of Costa Coffee by Starbucks in 2012.
Starbucks purchased its Costa coffee business in 2010.
That purchase raised the value of the company to more than $12 billion.
And Starbucks’ new $4 billion investment in the coffee business comes after Starbucks was purchased by PepsiCo in a $3 billion deal in 2016.
Meanwhile, Starbucks will expand its roasting operations in the second quarter of 2021, Schultz confirmed.

It’s got a good flavor and it’s good for a $4,000 espresso machine.
Coffee is very expensive.
But at Starbucks, we want to be known as a premium company, not a cheap cup.
A couple of years ago, the coffee market was a little smaller than it is today, Zengerles report said.
But today, coffee is a very big deal.
So when you look at Starbucks today, I think they are doing a great job, and it will grow in the future.
There is going to be a lot more roasting and it is going be a big part of the future, Zengers report said, adding that Starbucks has a lot of other coffee brands that it plans to add to its portfolio in the near future.
