Located at Lulu Mall, this is Starbucks 201st store, since announcing its 200th store in Amritsar last week.

“We at Tata Starbucks have proudly served our customers in India with the premium Starbucks Experience for eight years and are excited to bring the first Starbucks store to Kerala, at Lulu Mall in Kochi,” shared Navin Gurnaney, CEO, Tata Starbucks.

A major coastal port in south-western India, Kochi is known as the ‘Gateway to Kerala’ and boasts of a diverse and cross-cultural heritage. The store’s warm and rustic colour palette represents Kochi’s charming atmosphere, and features artwork of the iconic Starbucks Siren in etched wood panels, as if it is floating in water.   

The store also features two colourful and vibrant watercolour paintings created by a local Kerala artist, one depicting coffee trees found in Southern India, the other paying homage to the first Starbucks store in Seattle, Pike Place Market.
