Starbucks just opened their second store in Johannesburg in the newly created Mall of Africa, in Midrand area. The store design is based on combining Starbucks coffee culture with the rich local art and craft in a modern way. The store has been constructed and built with local people and local designers for the lighting and wooden furniture. South African craftsmanship as portrayed in the wood cladding telling the Starbucks story of her Siren, her hairs painted by South African artist Kurt Pio.

The ceiling is based on how the beans are organized and raked on the fields. It is made out of Felt to give the space more dimension and better acoustics. The store also serves Starbucks Reserve Coffee which is a premium selection of carefully sourced coffees from smaller farms in Africa and other parts of the world.
