Starbucks has opened on the campus of Purchase College. In response to student demand, this Starbucks also serves three blends of fair trade coffee; the only Starbucks store in the country to do so. Fair trade is a system that seeks to ensure that products traded internationally have been produced in a safe and healthy workplace by fairly paid workers.
The new store is located in the Fort Awesome residence hall on Lincoln Avenue and includes free WiFi and plenty of seating. Store hours are 7:30 AM to 11 PM, Monday through Friday, and 10 AM to 11 PM, Saturday and Sunday.
In addition to the fair trade coffee, the new store offers the standard Starbucks whole bean coffees and rich-brewed espressos, as well as teas, pastries, confections and coffee-related accessories.
Forms of payment accepted include cash, all major credit cards, the Starbucks card, plus the campus-based More Dollars, and meal plan, flex and dining dollars.
The store is open to the public.
