Starbucks House Blend Coffee
I love this Starbuck‘s House Blend coffee. It's a good, basic coffee that does not require much from me to brew a good cup. Since it is a medium roast, it's good first thing in the morning and still tastes good at lunch. It's smooth and goes very well with milk. Because it is affordable, I can purchase it without ruining my grocery budget. Also, it is widely available, so I can find it in any grocery store in the United States,. Since I travel a lot, I find this detail a very welcome one. Also, the coffee is available in smaller sizes, so I do not have to lug around a big bag of it with me when I travel.
The best thing about this coffee is that most people enjoy it. I do not have to worry about serving it to friends or company. Also, the coffee has a broad enough appeal I do not have to worry how it will taste from coffee maker to coffee maker. That is another big plus for me when I am away from home. If Starbucks House Blend has one drawback, it is that it is so ordinary. There are no bells and whistles with this blend. A coffee connoisseur may find it too insipid for his taste.
An espresso lover will feel shortchanged by the lightness of this Blend. Despite those few downsides, I still believe Starbucks hit a home run with this blend. It is delicious. It does not overpower. I find it a comforting way to start my day.
