TORONTO — Starbucks has launched the first-ever addition to the chain’s core espresso offerings — Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast. The new espresso offers beverages a lighter roast that provides a balanced and sweet flavour with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel.
The Blonde Espresso features a unique blend of Latin American and African coffee beans roasted to bring out the lighter side of espresso and is a delicious option for iced-espresso beverages, creating smooth, balanced drinks.
“With our signature Starbucks Espresso, the caramelly roast comes through in the beverage while Blonde Espresso is a sweeter, gentler flavour,” says Starbucks Coffee specialist Anthony Carroll. “It’s a great way to invite new espresso drinkers to try our beverages, while also offering our seasoned coffee drinkers a way to experience our beverages in a new way.”
Customers in participating stores in Canada can now request Blonde Espresso with any handcrafted espresso beverage.
