This roast is strong enough for flavor but not so strong I get a stomach ache. I can have multiple cups without feeling like I’m overly caffeinated like the stronger roasts do to me. It smells amazing and gives the best flavor. I make mine in the keurig and it tastes like I just got it from the coffee shop. Usually I can’t make that great of coffee at home but this stuff is seriously the best.
I love Starbucks blonde roast coffee! And I especially love it during the fall!! I always get it with pumpkin spice syrup and add a little bit of half and half. You can purchase the blonde roast at your local coffee shop or at target! I would highly recommend this coffee if you are looking for something light and delicious. Definitely try adding some pumpkin flavor for an extra yummy fall drink!!
This is by far my favorite morning coffee. I open at my job quite often, and catch myself waking up more often than not at around 6:30 AM. This always wakes me up bright and ready to go for work, it is a bold blonde roast for me personally. I can really only drink blondes and medium roasts. Dark roasts gives me major headaches but these are just right for me. :-)
I love a light roast coffee, nothing to strong that will put hair on my chest but just right. I always thought Starbucks coffee was too strong for me but I must say I enjoyed Starbucks Coffee Blonde Roast, smooth taste that I can enjoy. I would definitely but this again and I would recommend this to anyone that wants a light roasted coffee.
My HOLY GRAIL. One sip of this and I can hear the hallelujah chorus in the morning. I'm not a morning person and now I'm extra groggy being a newborn mommy.. this is the EXACT thing I need to make me human in the morning and puts a smile on my face so my baby girl can see momma happy and cheerful. This is too good and isn't too deep with flavor.
Review for: Veranda
I normally do not drink a ton of coffee, but when I do, I really prefer this particular blend. The flavor is nice and light, but still gives you a robust coffee flavor. I think that the bag it comes in is a great size, as it lasts me a pretty long time. I would definitely recommend this blend to others!
Blonde roast from SB is my favorite coffee of all time. it has such a great flavor and a nice caffeine value too. its a more mild flavor than the dark or medium roasts but i think it has a smoother taste out of all three. i would recommend this coffee to anyone who wants a good pick me up drink!
Usually, I have a problem with Starbucks coffees because they are very bitter. But their blonde roast is perfect for me! Sometimes, I like to add in vanilla for a bit of flavor. I use the mini Keurig cups for loose coffee because it's much cheaper than buying K-Cups, so this works fine for that.
Call me crazy, but I love to make a strawberry blonde coffee drink with this brew. It's not as robust as my other blends I use, but it's got a nice flavor to it and really ( in my opinion and I'm just a 38 year old Animator not a Barista ), it pairs well with fruity flavored syrups.
Starbucks Coffee is always too strong for my liking, I usually enjoy Tim Horton's or Dunkin Donuts much more. However this Blonde roast is about the only one I'll drink at Starbucks. It seems like their lightest medium roast and is bearable for me to drink when I need caffeine.
