Espresso Roast Pods

This espresso is part of our history—the same beloved blend we've been serving in our stores since we handcrafted the very first Starbucks latte. Much has changed since then, but we still feel that nothing beats this rich blend of high-grown beans. It reaches its flavorful zenith through a longer roast to achieve a dark, caramelly sweetness. Great for the office, each of the 12 pods is filled with fresh-roasted, ground and tamped coffee for a mess-free, delicious shot of espresso, every time.

Roast:
Blonde Medium Dark

Full-Bodied & Bold

Tasting Notes Rich & Caramelly

Region multi-region

With the help of Starbucks® coffee pods, it's easy to create your favorite espresso beverage at home.

Each pod is filled with ground and tamped Starbucks® Espresso Roast, so there's no measuring, no grinding, no mess. Just a consistently delicious shot of espresso, every time.

Starbucks® espresso pods measure 54 mm across from the edge of the filter paper to the other. It is 43 mm across the section containing the coffee and 9 mm thick. Each pod contains 7 grams of coffee, enough for one shot of espresso. Starbucks® Espresso Roast pods can be used with most home espresso machines; they will fit in all espresso machines accepting E.S.E. (Easy Serving Espresso) pods.

Espresso pods are not compatible with single-serve pod coffee makers or the Verismo® System.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Bring back the best espresso ever!!

By pod mistress

from NM

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

Come on, please! I got so excited when I hit on the picture of exactly what I've been dreaming of finding again. I would buy these exclusively for my espresso machine, if you'd just bring them back. They are so easy to use and make a perfect shot every time.

2015 and still no ESE Pods

By Tom

from Amherst, MA

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

It was a big dissapointment in 2013 when the ESE pods were discontinued at Starbucks. Nothing said, just dropped. After spending $400 for a home machine, now I have to go through the messy process of measuring out grounds and disposing of them. The only choice is a third party with their own (unknown) coffee. HOWARD, if Starbucks cannot make these pods, you must find someone else and make a deal for them to put your espresso coffee into their pods so that you can recommend them. DO IT.

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

I bought a Saeco Aroma espresso machine to use at the office. The pods were so convenient. Switched to decaf later in the day. So sad Starbucks espresso roast is no longer available in ESE pods

Please bring the Pods back!!!

By Marella

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

I have your coffee pot and espresso Barista. I buy your K-cups and regular coffee and pods. However, since my last stock up I only have one box of pods left and found out you can no longer buy them at Starbucks. Yes us consumers can buy the pods from another maker but THEY ARE NOT STARBUCKS :*(

I did spend 500.00 on the Stainless Steel Machine and almost 200 on a Starbucks Barista Coffee pot so why not supply the pods? Or at least recommend a company that can supply the same quality and price!

Highly disappointed since the espresso machine will be almost valueless now.

Sincerely,

Heart Broken and Disappointed

BRING THEM BACK!!!

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

I came here to reorder espresso pods... only to find that you'd discontinued them. Since I use them for my expensive espresso maker, I absolutely refuse to buy in to the Verismo system. You just lost my business... I'll have to look for another coffee pod manufacturer.

Make them available again

By Banyan

See all my reviews

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

I have been using these pods for about ten years and gone through two or three machines with them. I usually order a quantity and my stock is running out.
Is this lack of availability to pressure us addicts into buying Verismo at almost many times the price per pod?

An Excellent product

By CohoQueen

from Mossyrock, WA 98564, USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Starbucks Espresso Roast Pods:

The Starbucks ESE (easy serve espresso) pods are a wonderful product. Easy to use, no mess or wet grounds to clean up and always produce an excellent shot in our Saeco Sirena machine. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring them back. There is NO equivalent product on the market. We live in a very rural area and the nearest Starbucks is 30 miles away, making it impossible to enjoy fresh, good quality espresso on a daily basis without making it at home. When our pod stash is depleted we will be forced to use a brand X pod or *horrors* go back to brewed coffee.

These were the BEST pods for my ESE machine. Please bring them back. Pretty Please? Pretty Please with a cherry on top?
