Verismo™ Espresso Coffee Pods, exclusively for the Verismo™ System

This is the high-quality arabica coffee you love from Starbucks, roasted, ground and packaged specially for single-cup use with the Verismo™ System. Insert espresso coffee pod into machine and push "Espresso" button for a delicious shot of espresso. Americanos and Caffè Lattes can also be made with this espresso pod.

Pods are for single use only. Never reuse. Use espresso pod only with espresso brew cycle. Misuse of pods can damage machine.

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 Coffee-Like Ethiopia Yirgacheffe is by far the best coffee yet for the Verismo system. I've found that while other Verismo coffee tastes good, it lacks aroma and doesn't form the classic latte crema. Ethiopia Yirgacheffe changes that, with a coffee aroma that triggers memories and enhances the drinking experience. Great upgrade to the Verismo line. August 1, 2014
    Love the flavor I have tried every pod available and this is one of my favorites, especially for after dinner as a sweet treat. July 22, 2014
    Great coffee but too close to expiration I ordered the 96-count to get free shipping and the bulk price. Ship date was June 9 and "best before" date on all 8 boxes I received was July 19. Since I'm the sole drinker this means I will use most of the pods after that date. Not a big deal, just annoying. Probably not a problem if you're buying for a small office. In person I can usually get boxes with several months until the best before date. Other than that, the Yirgacheffe are my favorite espresso pods. June 23, 2014
    overall excellence and balanced taste Just a wonderful espresso, and even better latte .. there is a distinctive fruit taste I love! June 9, 2014
    Smooth and "mild" for an espresso Quite good. Ideal for those who prefer "milder" tasting espressos. I mainly use espresso pods for preparing Raspberry Mochas at home. Though this was still good for the preparation (and better than their original Dark Espresso Pods), I would have to say that the Guatemala Antigua remains my preference for a full, flavorful and well-balanced espresso component in my verismo lattes/mochas at home.
