Starbucks Espresso

Starbucks Espresso

In 1983 Howard Schultz ordered a Caffé Latte in a coffee shop in Milan, Italy. Something clicked when he saw the espresso prepared before him. It was the undeniable degree of passion that went into crafting his drink, and the community formed around great coffee that made a lasting impression. He knew that he had discovered something special.

Today, upholding this attention to detail is just as important as the variety on our menu. Whether it's the pure and bold espresso flavor of a doppio or the creamy blend of a latte perfectly crafted, there's passion in every cup.

  1. The heart and soul of all our espresso beverages. Each shot we pull has three distinct layers that create a deep, rich flavor.

  2. A celebration of espresso flavour—hot water poured over rich espresso for a cup that is as deep and dark as the coffee bean itself.

  3. This classic European-style beverage is made with a perfectly pulled shot of our signature espresso marked ever-so-lovingly by a dollop of steamed milk. Anything more than a hint of milk and we would risk obscuring the rich, caramel flavor that gives the espresso its wonderful intensity.

  4. Bold ristretto shots matched with the perfect amount of steamed milk to create a not too strong, not too creamy flavor.

  5. Dark, rich espresso lies in wait under a smoothed and stretched layer of thick foam. It's truly the height of our baristas' craft.

  6. Delicious espresso and steamed milk always blend perfectly with whatever flavours you desire to add.

  7. A wonderful treat featuring layers of sweet drizzle, dense foam, rich espresso, steamed milk and an oh-so-sweet finish.

  8. Hot espresso and bittersweet chocolate melt together before mixing with steamed milk. A delicious treat.
