Starbucks just came out with a new core espresso blend for the first time in more than 40 years: Starbucks® Blonde Espresso. It’s subtly sweet, citrusy, and extra smooth, whereas their signature espresso delivers a nutty, chocolatey, caramel-sweet flavor. It’s all thanks to the brand-new roast profile.

If you’re planning to try Starbucks® Blonde Espresso, the question remains: How will you take it? Hot or iced? With or without milk? There are tons of ways you can customize your drink, but here’s a breakdown of how you can enjoy two of the espresso drinks on the Starbucks menu: the Flat White and the Iced Americano.

The Flat White

With shots of Starbucks® Blonde Espresso topped with steamed milk, the Flat White strikes the balance between bold and smooth. To create a velvety foam, steamed milk is folded into itself and finished with a signature white dot. Looking to sit and savor your espresso before diving into some work? Try a Flat White.

The Iced Americano

If you prefer your espresso chilled and on the go, consider the Iced Americano. Starbucks® Blonde Espresso is topped with water and served over ice for a smooth, refreshing espresso experience that’s ready to go wherever you take it.

Remember, these are just two of your options at Starbucks – you can have any beverage made with Starbucks® Blonde Espresso. But the question still remains...

How do you take your Starbucks® Blonde Espresso?

Hot and foamy Flat White or chilled and smooth Iced Americano?
