From our first store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market to our coffeehouses around the world, customers requested a freshly brewed coffee they could enjoy throughout the day. So in 2008 our master blenders and roasters created it for you, a blend so consistent and harmonious that no single characteristic dominates—or disappears. A smooth, well-rounded blend of Latin American coffees with subtly rich flavors of cocoa and toasted nuts, it’s perfect for every day.
- Pike Place Roast is well-rounded with subtle notes of cocoa and toasted nuts balancing the smooth mouthfeel
- Medium-roasted coffees are smooth and balanced with rich, approachable flavors
- Enjoy Starbucks at home. The coffee you love without leaving the house
- For best taste, use cold, filtered water and store ground coffee in a cool, dark place
Smooth and balanced, our medium-roast coffees are perfect for every coffee break.
In 1971, we opened our first store in Seattle’s Pike Place Market. Reflecting on our heritage inspired us to create this delicious blend with smooth body and subtle flavors of cocoa and toasted nuts. Brewed fresh every day in our stores, it’s a rich, satisfying and balanced cup.

The Starbucks Roast Spectrum
A Better Cup
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.
Starbucks Blonde Roast
Lighter-bodied and mellow, Starbucks Blonde Roast coffees awaken the senses gently and deliver an approachable and flavorful cup with slight hints of roast.
Smooth and balanced, our medium-roast coffees have a little kick and deliver a medium-bodied cup with a hearty roast.
Fuller-bodied and bold, these coffees feature robust flavors and the characteristic essence of an intense roast.
Get the perfect grind and the freshest flavor by grinding whole beans just before brewing.
