StarbucksMelody.com is the leading Starbucks news and information website. We feature articles about Starbucks, Teavana, Seattle’s Best Coffee, Evolution Fresh, Tazo tea, and the Starbucks concept stores, such as Roy Street Coffee and Tea and the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room.
Since September 2009, I’ve been giving you the best Starbucks news on the web. I update with fresh content a minimum of three times a week. I live in Seattle close to the Roastery, 1912 Pike Place, and the headquarters, and so there’s isn’t a better vantage point to write about Starbucks from.
This website is a major source of Starbucks news – I’ve been cited, mentioned and/or quoted by these fabulous media outlets: (These citations are in no particular order!)

Guest Article Submission Guidelines and Story Ideas:
The experts at StarbucksMelody are always looking for new Starbucks stories! Please contact me via the Contact Form on this site if you have a Starbucks story idea. I’d love to hear from you!
If you would like to write guest articles, please submit your article for submission. Suggested length is 300 to 500 words with at least one original anchor photo. Keep in mind, I only publish content directly related to Starbucks, their brands, and products available in Starbucks stores or the Starbucks Roastery.
Over all, this unofficial Starbucks news site will present a positive and uplifting view of Starbucks. However, I do not work for Starbucks and absolutely will – when a relevant and valuable conversation may be productive – write articles critical of the brand and their campaigns.
If you are looking for only 100% content this might not be the site for you. It would be disingenuous if I never wrote a critical article.
However, if you want to guest write for this news site, I’m more likely to publish positive and uplifting articles.
Why are there ads on this blog?
For a long time, I was married to the idea that this blog would be ad-free. From September 2009 to November 2014, I kept this blog ad free. However, over the years, I’ve invested a lot into this site. It’s moved hosting providers four times. I’ve hired and contracted people to do website updates – it didn’t start out as a mobile phone responsive site in 2009. I’ve spent untold amounts on giveaways and even just presents for regular readers and commenters. The expense has been enormous. My monthly hosting is expensive! I finally decided that I would try to recover a tiny fraction of what I’ve spent via ad revenue. The purpose of this blog is – and will always remain – great Starbucks stories!
This is my blog and not a public space. Critical discussion is fine. I will, however, decline to approve (or delete your comment) if you descend into personal attacks, inappropriate language, disrespectful behavior, or excessive self-promotion and link-baiting.
