The Story of Veranda Blend. In Latin America, coffee farms are often run by families, with their own homes on the same land where their coffee grows. We've sipped coffee with these farmers for decades, sitting on their verandas, overlooking the lush beauty of the coffee trees rolling out in the distance. Most times it was a lightly roasted coffee like this one. It took us more than 80 tries to get it right--mellow and flavorful with a nice softness.

I am a very heavy coffee drinker and actually work as a barista at Starbucks. This is by far my favorite coffee blend from the store. It's light and the flavor is strong without being overwhelming (like a lot of our roasts). I especially love that it has a creamier and almost sweet taste to it. Blonde roast is always my go to at the store and the blonde espresso is my favorite for our specialty drinks!

I really though all coffee was the same until I got a sample from pinch me then bought this bigger bag from wal-mart it really does taste much better than my old brand of coffee, it smells super good to and makes you want to get up and make some coffee, I love the sweet taste it gives as well. I highly recommend this coffee.

I'm a heavy coffee drinker, and Starbucks is one of my favorites for sure!! It brews great at home, making you feel like you are drinking your coffee straight from the barista! The flavor is rich and smooth, and it never got the "burnt" flavor from sitting on the warmer. It is a little pricey, but it is Starbucks! Worth the money!

I really enjoy the smooth taste of this starbucks blend. We serve this where I work and it's my go to multiple times a day. Being a light roast it has slightly more caffeine and doesn't give me acid reflux like some of the other roasts can.

Veranda blend is easily my favorite coffee. I love that it has a full-bodied coffee flavor but doesn't taste burnt or too smokey like a lot of Starbucks' darker roasts. An excellent way to start the day and I like that it is conveniently available both at my local Starbucks and in take-home bags and coffee pods.

I LOVE the blonde roast because it's light and bright and flavorful! It's perfect for the morning and especially because it is less acidic, less bitter, but has more caffeine! It's extremely easy to drink on it's own or is perfectly paired with a dash of cream and sugar for a sweet treat!

This is a very light tasting coffee! If you’re not a huge fan of strong coffee I highly recommend this kind! It’s pretty expensive though and it’s the only reason I gave it four stars. I paid $10 for this tiny bag. Although it does have a great flavor, not bitter and very smooth!

Well, as an ex-employee, this is one of my favorites that I can actually drink black. It has such a smooth flavor. It can be expensive to some but not to me. It definitely meets my expectations. I recommend this to people who are coffee lovers.

This is my morning blend at home. It’s mild and vibrant, makes for a great latte with a splash of vanilla. I drink Starbucks on the go but this is my go to at home to start my day. I would recommend this blend if you love the kick of coffee but not a strong bold taste.

My favorite Starbucks flavor. It's very smooth and just right first thing in the morning. I'm not a fan of dark roasts so this one is perfect. Starbucks is definitely on the pricey side, so I look for deals at the grocery store and collect stars on all my purchases.
