Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend

Deep, untamed flavors ripple through. Earthy, herbal and complex with a lingering spice. The scent is like a stroll through the forest just after a rain. This is the essence of coffees from Indonesia, and no other beans bring these flavors. Our master coffee blenders have done something remarkable. Knitting together the best pieces of the region's coffees perfectly—allowing each taste to shine through clearly. It is an experience that would otherwise never exist. And is as extraordinary and wild as its namesake.

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.

Very Tasty

By Savanna

from Denver

Comments about Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend:

This blend brews great at home. It's also really good as the in-store dark roast weekly choice. However, for some reason, I don't like it much when brewed in the Clover.

Favorite Blend

By Your friendly neighborhood coffee snob

from Mid Cities (DFW), TX

Comments about Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend:

I love this coffee! It's a little tame in flavor compared to other blends but it makes up for the more mellow flavor with layers of complexity. I use it religiously for brewing espresso. When I brew "cone drip" pots, I add aged Indonesian and it's wonderful. For some guests I increase the ratio of coffee to water and they always come back for more. So after years and years, I finally discovered that I can write a review.

Not For The Faint Of Heart

By Krendei

from Newtown, PA

Comments about Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend:

Not every coffee will suit every taste, but if you like a really serious coffee that packs a flavorful punch and has a good lingering finish, this is one you might want to try. Slightly spicy, with a hint of an almost tea-like quality tannin. A touch of bitter that lets you add a little sugar without compromising the full flavor of the coffee. One of my new favorites.

    Comments about Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend:

    To say that BY FAR, this is the best blend Starbucks produces, would still be said in such a way that it doesn't do justice to the rich, full flavor, not bitter, intoxicating aroma, and satisfying cup, that Komodo produces. My go to blend for home and gifting and social occasion. And it's always complimented as a tasteful choice. And I should know as I was born in the year of the Fire Dragon. From one dragon to another, well played.

    Very Disappointed

    By JohnHH

    from LA County

    Comments about Starbucks® Komodo Dragon® Blend:

    I have been a Starbucks coffee drinker for years. I love Starbucks coffees and prefer them to all other brands. I have brewed and drank most other brands of whole-bean coffees, and always return to Starbucks. Never before in many, many years have I been totally disappointed in a Starbucks coffee, that is, until now.

    I love my coffee full, rich, flavorful. I always grind the beans fresh each morning. I am very fussy about how the beans are ground and brewed. I almost always get rewarded from the Starbucks blends and roasts.

    This coffee is different. It lacks any full bodied richness and to me is rather like drinking coffee-flavored tea. I have tried different grinds, fine, coarse, in-between, adding extra scoops of whole beans and nothing produces acceptable flavored coffee from this blend. Adding more scoops of beans just makes this coffee blend bitter.

    We will slowly use this coffee till it is gone, but never again will I buy this blend. There are just way too many other Starbucks blends that richly reward you every time.
