Starbucks House blend: It’s deceptively simple. A blend of fine Latin American beans roasted to a glistening, dark chestnut color. Loaded with flavor, balancing tastes of nut and cocoa, just a touch of sweetness from the roast. This coffee is our beginning, the very first blend we ever created for you back in 1971. A true reflection of us and a delicious cup of coffee, period.
Starbucks Veranda Blend: In Latin America, coffee farms are often run by families, with their own homes on the same land where their coffee grows. We’ve sipped coffee with these farmers for decades, sitting on their verandas, overlooking the lush beauty of the coffee trees rolling out in the distance. Most times it was a lightly roasted coffee like this one – mellow and flavorful with a nice softness.
Starbucks Caffe Verona: This is a coffee of one true love, and three names. We created it for a Seattle restaurant in 1975, as Jake’s Blend. People loved it so much we began scooping it in our stores as 80/20 Blend, after the recipe. The love was so strong we finally made it official, calling it Verona after the city that inspires so many.
Starbucks Single Origin Colombia: We’ve always loved coffee from Colombia. And we’re never reminded of that love more than when we’re traveling to the coffee farms. Driving treacherous dirt roads with a sheer mountain wall to one side—nothing but air for thousands of feet to the other. For us, the round body, juicy taste and signature nutty finish of this 100% Colombian coffee are worth the journey every time.
