Starbucks has opened its first store in Portugal. The new store, located in Lisbon, is part of the company’s ambitious plans for international growth.

Starbucks has been working with small speciality Portuguese food companies in order to de-velop food items that use local ingredients and are exclusive to this market.

"We are thrilled that we will be able to share our passion for high-quality arabica coffee and the Starbucks experience with the people of Portugal," said Luis Mello, operation director of Starbucks Coffee Portugal.

"Additionally, we are excited to be offering traditional Portu-guese food items in innovative ways that are complementary to our high-quality coffees."

Products include pastel de nata, a small custard tart and pastel de Feijao, a pastry made with almonds and sweet beans.
