Learn About the Starbucks Roast Spectrum
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.
Starbucks® Dark Roast Coffees
Fuller-bodied and bold, these coffees feature robust flavors and the characteristic essence of an intense roast.
Starbucks® Medium Roast Coffees
Smooth and balanced, our medium-roasted coffees are perfect for every coffee break.
Blonde Roast Coffees
Lighter-bodied and mellow, Starbucks® Blonde Roast coffees awaken the senses gently and deliver an approachable and flavorful cup with slight hints of roast.
