Learn About the Starbucks Roast Spectrum

The Starbucks Roast™ Spectrum

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 flavour. Our coffees are classified by three roast profiles – Starbucks® Blonde Roast, Medium Roast and Dark Roast – so you can easily find the flavour and intensity that’s perfect for you.

  1. Blonde Roast Coffees

    Lighter-bodied and mellow, Starbucks® Blonde Roast coffees awaken the senses gently and deliver an approachable and flavourful cup with slight hints of roast.

  2. Medium Roast Coffees

    Smooth and balanced, our medium-roasted coffees are perfect for every coffee break.

  3. Dark Roast Coffees

    Fuller-bodied and bold, these coffees feature robust flavours and the characteristic essence of an intense roast.
