From the famed roaster and cafe chain; known for its roast consistency.

Starbucks Veranda Blend is a popular coffee offering by Starbucks, known for its mellow and light-bodied flavor profile. It is specifically designed for those who prefer a smoother and less intense coffee experience. Veranda Blend is often categorized as a blonde roast, which means the coffee beans are lightly roasted to preserve their delicate flavors and acidity.

The blend consists of 100% Arabica coffee beans sourced from Latin America, such as Costa Rica and Colombia. These regions are known for producing beans with a mild and balanced taste, featuring subtle notes of cocoa and toasted nuts. Veranda Blend's flavor is characterized by a gentle sweetness, a hint of citrus, and a smooth finish.

This coffee is often described as having a lighter mouthfeel and a less pronounced bitterness compared to darker roasts. It offers a more approachable and less robust flavor profile, making it an excellent choice for those who prefer a milder and less acidic cup of coffee.

Starbucks Veranda Blend is available in various formats, including whole bean, ground coffee, and even K-Cup pods for single-serve brewing systems. It is a popular choice for those seeking a mild and easy-drinking coffee option that still delivers the quality and consistency associated with the Starbucks brand.

    Starbucks is tough for me since what I'm creating here is a specialty coffee focused site. Of course Starbucks is a big chain but also has its roots and still has a clear foot on the ground in the specialty coffee world.

    I've had Veranda blend many times but this is the first time under a critical eye. It does stack up against other light-medium roasts especially for drip/filter chain coffee.

    It's nicely balanced, smooth, chocolatey and has a nice strawberry acidity.

Roast Level: Light
Light roast coffee is a delicately roasted coffee that retains more of the beans' natural flavors and characteristics. Light-roasted coffees have bright acidity, complex fruit, and floral notes. Light roast coffee does not have less caffeine than darker roasts because caffeine levels remain stable during roasting.
Bean Source Country: International Blend
International blend coffee refers to a blend of coffee beans sourced from different regions or countries worldwide. International blends combine beans with distinct flavor profiles and characteristics, resulting in a harmonious and complex cup of coffee. The quality of an international blend depends on the expertise of the coffee roaster, who carefully selects and combines beans to achieve a specific flavor and balance. Roasters who excel in crafting international blends have a deep understanding of the different growing regions, varietals, and processing methods.
