In 1975, we developed Starbucks® Espresso Roast. Rich and caramelly sweet, Espresso Roast is roasted dark in order to maximize the intensity of its blend. We love it for its bold profile of chocolate, spices and nuts and its lingering finish.
And now, for the first time, we’re proud to introduce a second espresso, our new Starbucks® Blonde Espresso Roast. Our first-ever light-roasted espresso, it delivers a seriously smooth and subtly sweet taste in the cup. The roast showcases the coffee’s natural sweetness, with a creamy body and light notes of lemon and orange.
All of our handcrafted espresso drinks are now available with either Espresso Roast or Starbucks® Blonde Espresso Roast at participating stores.
