SEATTLE — Starbucks Corp. is introducing Starbucks Premium Instant coffees, the latest retail innovation to come from Starbucks’ global coffee alliance with Nestle SA.

Made with the same coffee beans used in Starbucks cafes, Starbucks Premium Instant coffees are available in three varieties: medium roast, dark roast and blonde roast. All three are ethically sourced and made with 100% Arabica coffee.

Starbucks Medium Roast Premium Instant Coffee is a Latin American coffee with notes of milk chocolate and nuts.

Starbucks Dark Roast Premium Instant Coffee features a sweet, toasted flavor with notes of dark chocolate.

Starbucks Blonde Roast Premium Instant Coffee is bright and complex with a crisp, sweet flavor, the company said.

Starbucks Premium Instant coffees are available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $9.99 per 3.17-oz canister.

“As we’ve all spent more time at home, our daily coffee habits have changed, with 85% of coffee drinkers having at least one cup at home (up 8% since January 2020) and more than 40% of Americans buying types of coffee they had never tried before during the pandemic,” Starbucks said. “Instant coffee is one format customers have been eager to try, with sales increasing 12.5% year-over-year.”

Starbucks and Nestle formed the global coffee alliance in August 2018. In 2019, the companies launched the first range of Starbucks coffee at home, which has expanded into categories including coffee creamers and Nespresso coffee pods.
