First up, let’s look at Starbucks® Blonde Roast, at the lighter end of the Starbucks® roast spectrum. Lighter-bodied and mellow, these coffees awaken the senses gently and deliver an approachable and flavorful cup with slight hints of roast.
As an example, Starbucks® Veranda Blend is a Starbucks® Blonde roast coffee – it’s on the light end of our spectrum – and showcases a mellow and soft taste with notes of soft cocoa and lightly toasted nuts.
Medium Roast is, as you might have guessed, in the middle of the Starbucks® roast spectrum. Smooth and balanced, these coffees are perfect for every coffee break. They have rich, approachable flavours.
An example of a Medium Roast coffee? Starbucks® Pike Place® Roast, with hints of cocoa and toasted nuts.
Lastly, let’s look at the darker end of the Starbucks® roast spectrum – the Dark Roast. Fuller-bodied and bold, these coffees feature robust flavours and the characteristic essence of an intense roast.
Starbucks® Italian Roast is a Dark Roast coffee, with a deep flavour and notes of caramelized sugar.
