Adventures in Coffee… Starbucks Caffe Verona

I got this little bag from Starbucks. They often do a charity collection and provide little bags of ground coffee for people to take in return for a donation. I usually grab one if they do this as I get through so much coffee!

I like the Verona blend. I thought I had done a review of it already as I have bought it before, but looking back I hadn’t so here it is. It is a bold, dark roast coffee. It is based on the coffee you get in Italy, which are my favourite types of coffee – strong and full bodied ( also I love Italian wine).

This one made a good espresso even though its not an espressos blend. It was smoother and good for a black based coffee. I find you need an espresso based coffee for milk based drinks as I like to taste the coffee through the milk.

I’ve also had this coffee in a French press and it is very nice, it makes a muddy coffee, but that’s how it supposed to be. It keeps it oils and flavours, which you don’t get through the espresso machine or when done as a drip coffee.

Overall one of my favourite regular Starbucks blends 🙂

  1. Did you ever have their Ubora blend? Have we talked about this? That was my all time favourite roast of any coffee I’ve ever had, but it was a limited edition only, and they haven’t brought it back since, to my sadness 🙁

    I’ll have to try this one though – I don’t think I’ve had it yet, and it sounds good!

    1. No I haven’t seen that one. We don’t tend to get the limited editions very often which makes me sad. The Christmas blend is back now though!
