For the first time in 40 years, Starbucks is adding a new kind of espresso to its permanent menu.
This is an espresso that will help you cut back on sugar.
While their bold, Signature Espresso will continue to be served, the new Blonde Espresso joins the menu today(1/9).
This now gives you an option for the first time between light and dark roast when you order your next latte or macchiato.
It's made with lightly roasted Latin American and East African beans.
The Blonde Espresso is much brighter than the dark roast and has notes of citrus and caramel.
Even though the Blonde Espresso is a lighter roast and has a much smoother flavor, which means you can add less cream and sugar to it.
The good news is that there is still just as much caffeine in it as the original dark roast espresso.
