Big, complex coffees roasted to create a refined, lingering, full-bodied blend.
Availability:  This item is in stock.
This is a serious cup. Big. Bold. Syrupy, complex and refined. A coffee that means Chicago to us.

When we opened our first stores there in 1987, we wanted to introduce a blend that would honor the city, and this is it. Our master coffee blenders brought together the heft of beans from Latin America and Indonesia with a bit of roasty sweetness from our dark Italian Roast. Creating a taste every bit as sophisticated as the neighborhood we named it after. And hearty enough to go up against the famously bitter winters.

A Better Cup

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.

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

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.

Disappointed

By fireside reader

from Ann Arbor, Michigan

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

Eh, drinkable, but just. We ran out of Casi Cielo and Cafe Estima, so picked up one of these locally until our online order gets here...will be discarding the rest once the Estima arrives (it will be next winter before we'll see the Casi Cielo again).

THE BEST

By Marty51

from Southern California

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

I've tried many of the blends, but this has to be my favorite. It's rather strong, so I blend it with another store bought coffee and it comes out perfect.
I love it!

Coffee ordered online

By Jabs

from Undisclosed

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

The order came quickly. I have never ordered coffee online before but took advantage of $25 off if I spent $70. I was surprised at the pull date on the ground coffee I ordered....Feb. 2015 (2 months away). When I buy it from one of your stores the pull date is about 6 months away. I am concerned that this sale was offered to get rid of coffee that would soon be out-dated.

Treat your taste buds

By Stevielin

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

Starbucks soars! We have sampled Starbucks other coffee blends and always come back to Gold Coast. We love the Christmas bulk coffee sales and would welcome a shipping break on larger orders throughout the year. We understand the intent of the bonus stars vis-à-vis store offerings such as pastry, but encourage Starbucks to establish a Stars value for bagged coffee/tea and single serve. Keep up the good work!
