About the new range of Starbucks® capsules for Nespresso system
- Starbucks® Espresso Roast: Every espresso beverage we handcraft for you started right here. A recipe for caramelly sweetness – so right it’s never been changed. Also available in Starbucks® Decaf Espresso Roast.
- Starbucks® Blonde Espresso Roast: A blend that is boldly mellow, it is derived from five decades of sourcing, blending and roasting. This special blend of beans from Latin America was carefully roasted to coax out sweet, vibrant notes. Soft and balanced, it highlights milk’s sweeter side, making classic espresso drinks extra smooth without a roasty edge. With its characteristic flavour that blends soft cocoa and lightly roasted nuts, one will enjoy the light richness and moderate acidity of this blend. It is lightly roasted, giving it a familiar flavour that makes it very easy to drink.
- Starbucks® Pike Place® Roast: From the 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. A smooth, well-rounded blend of Latin American coffees with subtly rich flavours of chocolate and toasted nuts, it’s served fresh every day at a Starbucks store near you.
