    The Blonde Espresso by Starbucks at Home is a light and fruity coffee pod that offers a sweet and acidic flavor with hints of berries and floral notes. While the aftertaste can be slightly bitter, the overall taste is smooth and easy to drink, making it an ideal choice for those who prefer a milder coffee that is not too intensely roasted. The nutty undertones provide an additional layer of complexity, resulting in a pleasant and enjoyable coffee experience without any harsh notes. Rating: 4/5.

    The manufacturer describes this pod as a mellow Latin American Arabican blend, light roasted to an intensity level of 6. It's supposed to be able to highlight the sweetness of milk, and is suitable for espresso and ristretto. Looking forward to trying these variants!

More Details

Espresso is a concentrated coffee beverage brewed by forcing hot water through finely-ground coffee beans under high pressure. It is characterized by its rich flavor and distinctive crema—the creamy layer that forms on top of the extracted process. When evaluating espresso, coffee experts often focus on key tasting characteristics such as aroma, flavor, body, and aftertaste. Aroma refers to the fragrant smells released during brewing, while flavor encompasses the coffee's overall taste profile, including notes of sweetness, bitterness, acidity, and richness. Body refers to the coffee's texture or mouthfeel, with descriptors like full-bodied, medium-bodied, or light-bodied. Aftertaste, or the finish, pertains to the lingering flavors and sensations experienced after swallowing the coffee. A well-prepared espresso is prized for its balance and complexity, combining these sensory attributes into a harmonious whole.
