Discover the rich & caramelly notes of STARBUCKS® by NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Espresso Dark Roast Coffee Pods. 


Enjoy this intense and caramelly sweet coffee, at the heart of our handcrafted latte. STARBUCKS® started hand-crafting every espresso beverage in 1975, searching for the perfect melding of beans and roast. Months of intense experimentation ended with this coffee. A recipe for caramelly sweetness – so right it’s never been changed.


The box contains 12 capsules of STARBUCKS® by NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® Espresso Dark Roast coffee pods, designed for NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® coffee machines.



Create professional quality coffees with a thick velvety crema, thanks to the machine’s high pressure (up to 15 bars).



With our hermetically sealed capsules, which preserve coffee freshness, you’ll enjoy rich aromatic cups every time.



Simply slide your Espresso Dark Roast capsule into your NESCAFÉ® Dolce Gusto® machine. Your coffee will be ready right away.

Not Bad

This is actually quite a good espresso, however it is nowhere near as good as the Dolce Gusto Ardenza & Barista pods.

Review by Adrian (Posted on 24/05/2020)

This is by far the best coffee I have tried yet. Full bodied rich coffee.

Amazing taste and excellent intensive aroma

Review by Katarzyna (Posted on 15/08/2019)

The taste is amazing. You can try it very short espresso or an americano. I am not a big fan of Starbucks, but this coffee edition is very good. I will keep buying the product

Never been to a Starbucks so I thought I'd give these a go. Wonderful. Good aroma, lots of depth in the taste and a bit of a "kick" so I'm assuming the negative feedbacks must have had a dodgy batch. Always had Peru in the past but this, for me is the best.

Far better espresso available...

Very disappointed with the weak strength, the bland flavour and the nasty bitter aftertaste of this Starbucks-branded espresso. I purchased purely because I needed my coffee fix and it was the only espresso Dolce Gusto pods my local supermarket had in stock. Now wished I hadn’t. This coffee is not a patch on the wonderful Ristretto Barista or Ristretto Ardenza which are both absolutely sublime. I would strongly suggest avoiding this one and treating yourself to one (or both) of those. You won’t regret it.

Weak and bland

Extremely disappointing. Was expecting much more from something with the Starbucks brand. Won't be buying again.

Not lived up to its name

Highly disappointed with this as it did not live up to its big brand name. Bought this for my other half as a surprise, and now stuck with the box as refusing to drink the rest. Real shame as we love our Dolce Gusto machine, according to my partner Dolce Gusto pods are much much better in taste and quality than this. Which was surprising as we’re gold members at Starbucks, just not the same quality at all. Therefore would not recommend unfortunately.
