Gold Coast Blend® – Morning Joe Edition
Stout & Refined
A delicious start to your day. Whenever that might be.
The Story of Starbucks® Morning Joe
We like to think of this as your basic cup of coffee—if your basic cup is big, rich, bold and syrupy. We originally created it to honor the opening of our first stores in Chicago, calling it Gold Coast Blend® for the town’s famous neighborhood. And now it’s become a morning favorite far beyond the second city. Our master coffee blenders brought together the heft of beans from Indonesia and Latin America with a bit of roasty sweetness from our dark Italian Roast. Creating a taste that’s full-bodied, intense and perfect for the first cup of the day or anytime it feels like morning.
Processing: Washed & Semi-Washed
Is your coffee in the grocery stores the same as the coffee in your stores?
Absolutely—only the packaging is different. This is so you can easily find your Starbucks favorites in the coffee aisle.
What is Gold Coast Blend®? It is a bold coffee – yes, that is true. But it is more than that.
It is the place where I experienced the start of my career with Starbucks and a place I have grown to cherish. It is the great city of Chicago!
My best memories of Gold Coast Blend® take me back to my training time in the Gold Coast, one of Chicago’s most unique and exclusive neighborhoods. I spent so much time walking from coffeehouse to coffeehouse, experiencing the welcoming third place between our partners and customers.
