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.

Now, That's a Cuppa Joe!

By Doc

from Berea, OH

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

Gold Coast Blend is one of the heartiest, most well-balanced coffees I've ever tried. Its aroma is tantalizing, and its smooth-texture is complemented by just a touch of sharpness, making it equally delicious either piping hot or over ice. I have enjoyed this coffee with sandwiches and pastries as well as just leisurely sipping it by itself. Gold Coast Blend has joined Pike Place as my favorite blended coffee.

Comments about Starbucks® Gold Coast Blend®:

We rented a secluded cabin in the beautiful hills of Tennessee and our hostess generously stocked the pantry with Gold Coast Blend. The weather that week was damp and unseasonably cool, but a hot mug of coffee throughout the day sure made it memorable.
