Reverence for Italian coffee culture has been at the very heart of Starbucks for more than 45 years. Rich and dark, bold and assertive, these coffees—and the spirit they evoke—are a constant inspiration. So it’s a particular honor to offer this blend in collaboration with Rocco Princi, the legendary artisanal Italian baker with whom we’re so proud to work. To help us develop the perfect companion to his exquisite baked goods, our master blenders worked with Rocco to create a full-bodied, creamy, sweet cup. Bold and forthright yet approachable, Princi™ Blend excels as espresso—an homage to the craft and culture that continue to shape us.
