Starbucks baristas talk about Starbucks Blonde Roast coffee. “Not everyone liked our dark roast coffee. We are known for our bold taste, and some people found that a little bit strong. If you don’t like that dark roast we’ve created a coffee for you. Blonde is a beautiful light-roasted coffee. A light roasted coffee… you can enjoy at home. Kinda mellow, sweet, a little citrusy. And now there’s two new Blonde Roasts to try. Available only where you buy groceries.” The three kinds of Blonde Roast are Veranda Blend, Aria Blend, and Bright Sky Blend.
