Coffee lovers will be giddy about Starbucks鈥檚 latest addition (Hint: It鈥檚 not a new drink, although we鈥檙e pretty excited about the recently announced Latte Macchiato). Rather, it鈥檚 an app available to the public that will help you learn all about the coffee you love so much.

Starbucks baristas have been carrying around a print version of this guidebook since the 1990s, which tells all about buying, roasting, brewing and tasting Starbucks coffee. Now regular people like us will have access to the coveted info via the app.

Truth be told, the app was really made with the company鈥檚 partners in mind, so they can have group coffee tastings, take notes and receive stamps for the coffee they鈥檝e tasted, but it鈥檚 also handy for the 鈥渢ruly coffee-curious customers,鈥 says David Carter, manager of Global Coffee & Tea Education for Starbucks. 鈥淏y making this publicly accessible, we hope that Starbucks partners and customers around the world will be able to connect through coffee.鈥
