The Starbucks Blonde Espresso is the latest core menu offering that will be available in all locations nationwide as a lighter coffee option for consumers to try out. Crafted using beans that have been sourced from Latin America and East Africa, the espresso is reported to have a balanced flavor with a subtle sweetness that is lighter than the traditional profile of the Starbucks Signature option.
While the new espresso flavor will be available in all drinks, the brand has placed a number of featured drinks in the spotlight to communicate the new option with consumers. This includes the 'Blonde Caffè Latte,' 'Iced Blonde Caffè Americano' and the 'Blonde Cappuccino.' The Starbucks Blonde Espresso will also be made available in pod form for the Verismo coffee system.
