Since 1975, Starbucks only had their signature roast espresso. It has been the essential taste to all of their handcrafted beverages. Up until yesterday Starbucks locations across Canada are now able to enjoy their new Starbucks Blonde Espresso Roast that they’ve added to their selection. This is a complete alternative flavour than the original. The new espresso offers a lighter roasted flavoured coffee and sweet flavour with a smooth creamy taste.
Anthony Carroll who is one of the specialist of Starbucks Coffee who was part of the team that created the new espresso. It is described as being a unique blend of Latin American and African coffee beans that have been roasted to bring out the lighter side of espresso. So, if you aren’t a fan of the bitter taste of regular espresso, the new Blonde Espresso is an option that offers smooth subtle flavours that anyone can enjoy.
“With our signature Starbucks Espresso, the caramelly roast comes through in the beverage while Blonde Espresso is a sweeter, gentler flavour. 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.” – Anthony Carroll (Starbucks Coffee Specialist
