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.
We’re committed to ethically sourcing and roasting the highest-quality arabica coffee in the world. When we buy coffee this way, it fosters a better future for farmers, and a more stable climate for the planet. It also helps create a long-term supply of the high-quality beans we’ve been carefully blending, roasting and packing fresh for more than 40 years.

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.
