For those who are being initiated to coffee, many start off having a disdain because of the bitterness.
Some start off with medium roast or dark roast because they hear other coffee connoisseurs talking about it, blogging about it. And then they try it and stay clear away from coffee.
For those starting out, it’s best to start off with a blonde roast is light and just a slight hint of a light roast.
For K-Cups, I recommend the Starbucks Veranda Blend Blonde Roast Ground Coffee K-Cups or Starbucks Bright Sky Blend Blonde Roast K-Cups.
According to Starbucks:
In Latin America, coffee farms are often run by families, with their own homes on the same land where their coffee grows. We’ve sipped coffee with these farmers for decades, sitting on their verandas, overlooking the lush beauty of the coffee trees rolling out in the distance. Most times it was a lightly roasted coffee like this one. It took us more than 80 tries to get it right—mellow and flavorful with a nice softness.
When I first started drinking coffee, I would only purchase Starbucks Veranda Blend Blonde Roast Ground Coffee because I loved the taste of light ground coffee.
And while I loved the nutty sweetness, especially with the cocoa, I then explored medium and later with dark roast and found what I enjoyed. And eventually discovering which roast works for me.
I recommend the Starbucks Veranda Blend Blonde Roast Ground Coffee K-Cups for those who want a light blonde-roast coffee. It’s a great starting point for those who want to get into coffee for the first time and enjoy the experience.
