Blonde Espresso!!!!

Wowza!!!! Who would have thought that such a thing existed? As the coffee fanatic I am, I of course had to sample on launch day. Something that hasn't been done in the last 43 years.... a different type of espresso. Designed to be smoother and give a slightly sweeter undertone to it. My review: I enjoyed it very much, it is noticeably smoother in taste which will please most people who might not be too keen on super strong coffee however I'm not sure it would please everyone. I love strong coffee, mostly getting iced espresso with minimal cream added so for me, I'd prefer the classic espresso only because I love the bold flavor and enjoy it. However it doesn't deter me from ordering the blonde because given it's smoother flavor, if I wanted to add a syrup or sauce to it like vanilla or caramel, the blonde espresso would allow those softer flavors to really shine through versus the signature espresso which I feel would mask them. It did remind me of cold brew coffee which I'm not too fond of so not sure if possibly it's produced similarly. It's something to research for sure. Overall most who don't generally drink coffee quite as much as myself might not detect a difference between the two however someone who gets at least one coffee a day, I could definitely tell a difference and appreciate the variety that it can give us frequent coffee addicts. I was able to post about my blonde espresso on my twitter @Starbuckianclub and fan-girled when I saw Starbucks acknowledge my tweet and ask how I liked it and my preference when ordering. Coolest moment in a while for me :) Til next coffee break, J

Welcome welcome welcome!! Thank you for joining me on my world of caffeine addiction. To say that I've successfully lived the last 25ish years of my life without coffee would be an outright lie. I plan to update you guys several times a week on the latest and greatest with everything concerning coffee and just general good fun. When I was a little girl my mother, who I credit for my extreme coffee addiction, always provided me with one of my favorite things to do which was going to a coffee house and simply sitting with her while she drank fancy adornmented drinks that had so much candy and chocolate on them that I simply couldn't wait to be old enough to start ordering them for myself. I remember her ordering a small steamed milk for me and then pouring a third of her drink into mine while we played dominos or read the latest issue of Creative Loafing (Charlotte, North Carolina's weekly magazine with fun local activities and tid-bits). I loved being able to share that with my mom because it was something her and I were able to do together. We would have fun looking through the crossword puzzles and word finders and I also remember discovering what personal ads were....(I was about 10 or so at the time :/) and I couldn't understand why a man would seek a man or a woman would seek a woman. My mother instructed me it was purely for friendship and going shopping and hanging out. I know otherwise now :) I just remember going to these coffee shops and watching the barista's make these beautifully crafted coffees with there fluffy white whip cream, drizzles upon drizzles of caramel and chocolate sauce with sprinkles of nuts and mint pieces and simply observing a work of art infront of me. I think that was truly when I feel in love with coffee. And the addiction grew from there :) And here I am, some 23 years later and I am just as addicted as I was at 10 years old, except now I am better at crosswords and laugh at the personal ads. Til my next coffee break J <3
