If you are a regular at Starbucks you may have noticed that the baristas across all Starbucks outlets usually wear green aprons. This would make sense considering the brand color is green. But if you have a keen eye and are not rushing about your day after getting your daily dose of caffeine, you may have noticed that sometimes the baristas are wearing black aprons. You may have not thought much of it and assumed it was just a personal choice of that particular employee. Or you may have been bothered that the uniformity that the green apron provided to Starbucks stores was messed up.

Worry not, turns out corporate chains don't leave much to chance and everything that goes on has a special meaning. There are actually more than just the green apron with the Starbucks logo on it. There are several colors and each one has a special meaning. The aprons serve as more than just a practical way to keep the baristas' clothes clean. When Starbucks first opened in 1971, the employees behind the counter wore brown aprons since they worked with whole-bean coffee every day. Besides the Starbucks logo was also brown at the time.
