Say Hello to Starbucks® Blonde Roast


For the first time ever, Starbucks customers in New Zealand will have a second roast option and can order any handcrafted espresso beverage with their choice of “Starbucks® Signature” or “Starbucks® Blonde” roast.
The new Starbucks® Blonde Roast is mellow, but still packs a punch! It is softer on the palette with light notes of citrus, while Starbucks® Signature Roast is bold and caramelly.
Created by a team of master blenders and roasters, Starbucks® Blonde Roast brings together beans from Latin America and East Africa, roasted to the peak of their flavour to showcase the coffee’s balanced, subtle sweetness.
Whether you fancy a Flat White, Latte or an Iced Americano, shake things up and have your favourite espresso beverage in Blonde Roast today.

To celebrate the arrival of Starbucks® Blonde Roast, we are giving away a limited number of free coffees so you can experience this smooth and subtly sweet blend for yourself.
