Starbucks buys Ballard coffee company

Posted by Geeky Swedes on March 19th, 2008

A few days ago, we posted a blurb about the Clover, an expensive single-cup coffee maker manufactured in Ballard that’s getting raves all over the country. Well, now there’s word that Starbucks is buying the company. “We’re ecstatic,” said 36-year-old Zander Nosler, the co-founder of Ballard’s The Coffee Equipment Company. “Every store manager wants one,” said Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz in an announcement. Schultz says the plan is to distribute the Clover to most of Starbuck’s cafes. Wow!
