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.

Rich, robust taste. This is my favorite Starbucks blend. It has a very complex, deep flavor that isn't bitter. February 13, 2015
Rich full bodied Very tasty, rich & full bodied. Not extremely complex, but very satisfying. January 21, 2015
Favorite brew This is hands-down my favorite Starbucks blend. A cup of bold, smooth, heavenly brew in every cup. January 14, 2015
THE BEST 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! December 30, 2014
Outstanding Coffee I wanted to try a different coffee than I have been buying. Wow... This might be my new favorite coffee. Very rich and smooth December 27, 2014
