Learn About the Starbucks Roast Spectrum

Coffee Profile

The Starbucks Roast™ Spectrum

Years of focus and expertise have led to the Starbucks Roast Spectrum. Each coffee bean requires a unique balance of temperature and time to reach its individual peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. Our coffees are classified by three roast profiles – Starbucks® Blonde Roast, Medium Roast and Dark Roast – so you can easily find the flavor and intensity that’s perfect for you.

  1. Blonde Roast Coffees
    Veranda Blend

    Lighter-bodied and mellow, Starbucks® Blonde Roast coffees awaken the senses gently and deliver an approachable and flavorful cup with slight hints of roast.
