Renowned coffee chain Starbucks has launched a blockchain solution from Microsoft that allows US customers to trace the origin of coffee.

According to Bloomberg, it is possible to trace the origin and roasting of coffee beans using a special code on the packs of coffee.

Farmers will receive a separate code. With it, they will be able to track their products.

Microsoft’s new blockchain-based tool aims to attract a young audience.

Recall that Starbucks, together with Microsoft, is going to provide customers with the opportunity to receive information about coffee from the pack they bought, it became known last year.

In 2020, the Bakkt cryptocurrency platform began testing the Bakkt Cash option on the Starbucks app.
