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. 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. Smooth and balanced, our medium-roast coffees have a little kick and deliver a medium-bodied cup with a hearty roast. Starbucks coffee capsules by Nespresso, compatible with Nespresso coffee machines.
