(Reuters) - Starbucks Corp <SBUX.O> on Thursday reported a better-than-expected rise in quarterly sales at established cafes, helped by strong growth in the United States and a rebound in China, sending its shares up 5 percent in extended trading.

The world's biggest coffee chain said global sales rose 3 percent in the fourth quarter ended Sept. 30, higher than the 2.32 percent rise expected on average by analysts, according to IBES data by Refinitiv.

Total net revenue rose to $6.30 billion (£4.8 billion), beating expectations of $6.27 billion.

However, net income attributable to the company fell to $755.8 million from $788.5 million.
