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.

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.

Starbucks® Gold Coast® Blend

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.

    Great price, Fast delivery, and wonderful coffee :) Great price, Fast delivery, and wonderful coffee :) August 11, 2014
    Smooth & Strong Smooth & Strong. Gold Coast pulls off the impossible with a deeply rich coffee without the heavy acidity that usually comes with a dark roast. Hints of dark chocolate, roasted malt, hickory smoked nuts, and sweet vanilla bean makes this a wonderful morning coffee that you will never tire of. August 11, 2014
    Perfect Strength Gold Coast Blend/Morning Joe is my favorite. It is strong and flavorful without any bitterness or earthy taste. This is one coffee that actually tastes as good as it smells. It never disappoints. Try it! I think you'll agree that it's a great blend. August 11, 2014
