Although the gulf between these two types is huge, we think all can agree that our Breakfast Blend is one fine coffee. It’s a gathering of Latin American beans chosen for their sparkling flavor. Kind of like orange juice and the way it dances on your tongue, this coffee has a get-up-and-going charge to it. But we roast these beans a little lighter than we usually do. So the flavor is lighter-bodied and milder – just a nudge really. What you get is a nice, clean taste with a sunny disposition. Whether your cup is half full or half empty, it’s all good.
Six thousand feet – straight up. Sounds extreme, we know. But high atop the majestic Andes, in a rugged landscape of simmering volcanoes, is where the finest coffee beans in Colombia like to grow. And just as there are no shortcuts through the dirt paths that crisscross the sheer slopes, we take none when it comes to nurturing these treasured cherries to gourmet perfection. This Colombian marvel erupts on the palate with a juicy feel and robust flavors, a testament to the hearty riches of volcanic soils. Its remarkable finish, dry with hints of walnut, lifts this superior coffee into a class of its own. One sip and you’ll agree it’s worth every step of the climb.
From ninth-century Ethiopia, arabica coffee beans began their journey to the rest of the world. Today our master roasters have created an entirely new way to experience these treasured beans. With a velvety texture and floral, peppery spice notes, this exquisite blend is our tribute to the birthplace of coffee.
These agricultural lands are famous for their passion and tradition, for exemplifying the best qualities of their respective beverages. This lush part of southern Guatemala is nestled among three volcanoes. The high altitude and loamy soil create conditions that are nearly ideal for coffee growers and coffee lovers alike. And love this coffee we do. It’s an elegant affair: refined in its acidity, identified by the pedigree of its gentle spice flavors and subtle cocoa-like texture.
One sip and you immediately recognize the characteristics that make this coffee so distinctively Starbuckian. An attention to quality in sourcing the finest Latin American beans. A care in the roast that brings forth all of the flavors locked within those beans. And a smile as the cup is handed across the counter to you. (Of course, if you’re brewing this at home, we realize you’ll be the one providing both counter and smile. Fortunately, smiles are easy with this familiar and friendly blend. Our House is your House too.)
And big – awash with a full-bodied juiciness that makes it instantly recognizable to its many, many fans. These qualities are all true of our Kenya coffee. You can recognize Kenya through its tell-tale citrus flavors – grapefruit most often, but sometimes lemon and sometimes tart orange. There’s a sparkle to this coffee, a bright acidity, that makes it so refreshing to drink. In fact, it's a terrific iced coffee on a hot summer day.
The very first day Seattle’s Pike Place Market opened in the summer of 1907, hundreds of eager customers snatched up all the farm-fresh goods in a matter of hours. By noon, there wasn’t a scrap of produce left as the farmers’ wagons began to roll out. When we set up shop here in 1971, we knew our success would depend on how well we could cater to this insatiable appetite for freshness. Naturally we took up this challenge with gusto, offering superlative brews day in and day out. Pike Place® Roast is as much a celebration of our proud history at the market as a heartfelt toast to our discerning customers. We created this blend to meet a wide range of tastes. Whether you prefer it straight up or complemented with cream and sugar, we promise a bold, satisfying cup that’s rich in flavor yet balanced enough to enjoy every day.
