Starbucks is Introducing a New Espresso Flavor for the First Time in Over 40 Years


Exciting news for coffee lovers– and actually, non-coffee lovers, too!

For the first time in over 40 years, Starbucks is releasing a new espresso flavor: Starbucks Blonde Espresso. According to the press release, the blonde espresso “brings together beans from Latin America and East Africa, roasted to the peak of their flavor to showcase the coffee’s balanced, subtle sweetness.”

The VP of Global Coffee for Starbucks says they are “proud” of the new option. “We set the standard for a dark, boldly roasted coffee and in this case, we broke a few of our own rules by taking a lighter approach to espresso which created a bright taste with sweet citrus notes and a smooth body. We are really proud of the roast and think customers are going to love experimenting with it.”

You can order the blonde espresso with their Caffe Latte, Cappuccino, Flat White, Macchiato, and Americano drinks.
