  • How to Prepare
  • Did You Know?

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Course for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

Storage philosophy 101

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

We created our biggest and boldest coffee blend in 1987 to commemorate our first store opening in Chicago. Our coffee artists created a blend that would stand up to the coldest winds off Lake Michigan: Gold Coast Blend®.

  • Product Details

Gold Coast Blend® is a sophisticated, full-bodied coffee with waves of flavor that evolve as the coffee cools.

Intensely satisfying, it features Latin American and Asia/Pacific coffees accented with a sweet touch of Italian Roast. Because of its great depth and complex taste, this whole bean coffee goes well with a range of food pairings, holding its own alongside flavors such as maple, chocolate, caramel or cheesecake.

Gold coast this blend is fantastic. I have been trying all the blends i can find but this one bets all! February 28, 2013
good but... not as good as the old Gold Coast. That stuff was AMAAAAAZING! (read in a high pitch) September 16, 2012
Simply the best I have been drinking Starbucks for some time and have tried many different selections. I prefer bold flavor coffees and the Cup of Joe has been my go to coffee for the past year. Sumatra had been my daily cup until I discovered the Cup of Joe-Gold Coast. I have tried Italian roast,Verona, French roast and several others but this coffee by far is my favorite cup. Great taste,full bodied and wonderfully aromatic. It is a great eye opener. July 25, 2012
Not like the old Gold Coast I have been buying Gold Coast for years. I brew it in a Rancilio Sylvia. The most recent purchase, which is the "Morning Joe" is different from my last purchase. It does not produce the crema that I got with the old Gold Coast and the taste is just not the same. So disappointed. I loved the old Gold Coast. I will not be repurchasing this. January 7, 2012
