What Kind of Blender Does Starbucks Use?

Vitamix 36019Very often, we are asked by customers, “What kind of blender does Starbucks use? That’s the blender we want!”

For years, Starbucks used a Blendtec blender, but the coffee giant eventually switched over to Vitamix, which created a blender specifically for Starbucks’ needs. Today, you’ll see the 48-ounce Vitamix Blending Station Advance, better known as “The Quiet One,” in nearly every Starbucks you go to around the world.

The quietest machine on the market, it is the ultimate blender with unparalleled sound reduction, as well as exceptional beverage blending. These features improved speed of service with users rarely have to reblend a drink.

The Quiet One’s smart product design means that because of its advanced vibration dampening technology, this blender it is up to 18 decibels quieter than the competition. This is 4 times quieter than the competition and creates a much more enjoyable atmosphere for customers, whether waiting in line or enjoying coffee and company at a table. The magnetically designed floating sound enclosure is dramatically easier to clean and disassemble since there are no screws involved.

Like most Vitamix blenders, The Quiet One has variable speed control and automatic shut-off, providing the user flexibility in creating endless recipes. Designed specifically with coffeehouses and high-end bars in mind,  it features:

6 programmable buttons

34 optimized programs

Powerful 3-horsepower output motor

Air management design for reduced noise, improved reliability, and reduced down time.

The blending container is also uniquely designed for faster, smoother pouring and a long lasting blade life. What does this mean Vitamix customers, whether at Starbucks or anywhere else? Time and cost savings, along with improved customer experience. The container’s double-sealed bearing also provides improved wash-ability, extending life of the blade assembly.
