Starbucks® Kenya Espresso Verismo® Pods, 12 count

Kenya’s high altitudes, ideal climate and strong traditions have helped put premium Kenyan coffees like this one among the world’s most treasured. And as it did when we introduced it in 1971, Kenya continues to astound our expert tasters and customers alike with flavors not commonly ascribed to coffee. It's bright with a juicy acidity, low wine notes and fruity flavors—ranging from black currant and blackberry to tart grapefruit—that become more pronounced as the coffee cools. Kenya tastes delicious hot or served over ice and is an important ingredient in our iced-coffee blends.

This coffee is specially packaged in 12 -0.31 oz (8.8 g) pods for exclusive use with the Verismo® System.

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.

Espresso Coffee Verismo® 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.

New Favorite

By coffeesnob

from Bishop, Ca

This is my new favorite! Deep rich flavor, minimal acidity. It is my morning regular two shots, plus I'm now having it in the afternoon, too. After my expresso shot I run the same pod through as a cup, then refrigerate it and ice it! Wonderful.

Not what I thought

By Jen

from Newtown Square, PA

I tried the Kenya espresso hoping for something new to drink; I typically enjoy Ethiopia espresso which I think had a bit more flavor than the standard issue dark roast espresso.
I thought there was too much going on with the taste - not what I was looking for but glad I tried it.

As compared to Starbuck's normal Espresso roast, this Kenya espresso tastes awful and is weak.

I would rate it zero if possible!

I don't know about any notes of grapefruit or black currant, but Kenya Espresso has a smooth rich flavor.
