1.Blonde roasted espresso beans

To start off, let's take a look at the beans on offer that will automatically make your drinks stronger.

If you go there often, you might have noticed the blonde roast coffee offering. This is their light roast version, roasted at lower temperatures for a shorter amount of time.

Many people assume that a dark roast contains more caffeine, but you'd be wrong.

Lighter roasts contain more caffeine as moisture and oils are retained, meaning you get more caffeine in your espresso shots.

A doppio blonde espresso (made with two shots of espresso) contains 170 mg of caffeine compared to the signature roast which contains 150 mg.

Next time you come in, give it a try! Citrus notes and fruity nuances can be found in its blonde version.

2.True North Blonde Roasted Filter Coffee

If you want something that will really keep you awake during your workday (or long study nights!), the True North Blonde filter is the way to go, as it's Starbucks' strongest coffee yet.

Baristas supposedly need to use a smaller scoop of beans when brewing because of their strength.

In fact, the Starbucks Nutrition Facts website confirms that you're getting 475 mg of caffeine in one size of Venti. A great caffeine hit!

Surprisingly for such a strong coffee, the flavor is smooth, sweet and rich in citrus and floral notes.

The lighter roast does not contain the oils that create the bitter taste in a dark roast, so it would be best for those who like their coffee with a sweeter taste.

3.Café Starbucks Clover

Before rushing to your nearest Starbucks to try this coffee, make sure they have it in stock.

Clover coffee is only available at stores that carry a Clover machine, so it may not be available in your area.That said, once you find a store, don't miss out!

Coffee made with clover is quite intense. It has a full-bodied flavor with some citrus and floral notes, but you can definitely tell how much stronger it is compared to regular light roast coffee.

Coffee made with clover is available in dark roast, medium roast and light roast, and the caffeine content is reversed.

Forget everything you know about light and dark roasts because this vacuum press shakes things up.

  • Dark roasted: 475 mg
  • Torra media: 445 mg
  • Light Roasted: 425 mg

As confusing as it may be, coffee made with Clover provides more caffeine than standard beverages.

Plus, they can only brew one of these coffee drinks at a time, meaning each drink is unique down to the last drop, offering a world of different flavors.

4.Iced Shake Espresso (Doubleshot On Ice)

An iced, whipped, fan-sized espresso is sure to keep you going on those summer days.

Originally called Doubleshot on Ice, it was renamed because confusion between patrons and baristas resulted in the drink having only two drinks when it should have had five.

Espresso shots are poured over ice, shaken, then poured over more ice and drizzled with milk and syrup.

With up to 375 mg of caffeine, this sweet coffee and milk blend provides a great start to each hot day.

Even in a large size, you can expect up to 300mg of caffeine, so you'll never run out of this drink!

7.Sweet vanilla cold cream

If you're not a fan of traditionally strong and bitter coffee, Starbucks has you covered!

Cold-Brew offers a blend of stronger and sweeter notes thanks to its brewing process, but it might be too much for some coffee lovers. Cold coffee with sweet cream corrects this problem.

Starbucks Cold Brew Coffee is brewed as standard, then topped with vanilla syrup and sweet vanilla cream, cold foam or Cascara Sagrada cold foam.

It's much easier to drink than a traditional iced drink and still offers a bigger caffeine boost: 320mg for Venti.

This Starbucks iced coffee contains more caffeine than a regular iced drink because it requires more coffee in its base.

A sweet start and finish with smooth coffee notes in every sip of this icy drink.

8.Pike Place filter coffee

A rumor once said that Starbucks roasts its coffee longer to flatten the flavor so it tastes the same everywhere.

Whether this is true or not is anyone's guess as filter coffee still tastes great in every store you visit. Roasted filter pike is no exception.

Its smooth, rich roast was created by blenders in 2008 and has been around ever since.

You'll find it at every Starbucks you frequent and whenever you have a great-tasting caffeinated drink.

The tall version of this Starbucks coffee alone has 308mg of caffeine, and if you upgrade to a Venti it has 410mg!

So next time check out the extensive selection and give the pike a chance to move on.

9.Cold coffee

If you prefer a stronger coffee flavor and don't like sweet vanilla cream, Starbucks' standard iced coffee might be for you.

Starbucks cold coffeeIt's different from the rest of your coffee because it's brewed longer.

To retain the same taste as hot coffee, coffee beans need to be soaked for 8 to 20 hours.

If you went inside and noticed that they are sold out, it's because it takes a long time to get it right!

Even with a shorter brew, where the coffee beans steep for 8 hours, you still get a coffee that's strong and has a bold flavor.

Their drink is made with a darker roast, so the bottom has a rich, full palette.

Every sip of this Starbucks coffee brings hints of cocoa and nutty flavors. And there's no shortage of caffeine either; A large provides 300 mg of caffeine, while a large increases it to 360 mg.

Not bad for a smaller size!

10iced american coffee

The best thing about Americanos is its simplicity. Espresso over hot water has been around since WWII, and pouring it over ice water gives it the same iconic taste.

Starbucks tends to use more coffee shots in its iced drinks, which means that the iced Americano delivers a stronger flavor with every sip.

Because of the extra drinks, an iced Americano provides 300 mg of caffeine.

For the summer months when you want to cool off and lighten up, this iced coffee is for you.

11cold nitro beer

Starbucks' iconic Nitro Cold Brew has that weird draft beer look and is no longer served as a tall beer. But it's definitely a change from your usual Starbucks espresso drinks.

The difference between a cold drink and a nitro cold drink is that it is enriched with nitrogen during the pouring process, i.e. it is poured from a faucet.

The added nitrogen gives the cold brew a smoother, sweeter taste, along with a decent caffeine boost. It's also visually appealing.

The bubbles give Nitro Cold Brew an iconic look that reminds me of ordering drinks at a bar.

You can't serve more than a large Nitro Cold Brew due to its strength and nitrogen content, but you still get a generous 280 mg of caffeine.

Nitro Cold Brew is really smooth but still one of the strongest coffee options. You can add a layer of chilled foam on top to sweeten the drink, and chilled foam in a glass works great.

12Nitro Cold Brew with Almond Milk Foam and Dark Cocoa

If you're not a fan of cold beer, don't worry!

Thankfully, Starbucks lets you customize the drinks to your liking, and the addition of almond milk foam and dark cocoa gives Nitro Cold Brew a sweeter twist as an alternative to regular whipped cream.

The foam helps balance out the strength of Starbucks coffee beans, but don't be fooled into thinking it's still one of Starbucks' strongest beverages.

This nitro cold brew alternative still contains 280mg of caffeine. A perfect twist on an iconic Starbucks drink!

13iced coffee

The best thing about mocha is the hint of chocolate you get. Their dark roasted mocha combines bitter and sweet flavors to create a great chocolate coffee!

It is made with espresso coffee, chocolate malt powder, milk and topped with whipped cream. And it works even better on ice.

Frozen mocha contains more shots as the drink would not have the same notes.

This means you drink more coffee and a higher dose of caffeine. An iced mocha contains 265 mg, which would be perfect to power you through a long night of study when you need it!

15.Lace Latte

The best-selling drink at Starbucks is latte. And it's easy to see why: mixing milk foam with two or three shots of espresso makes for an excellent drink for any time of the day.

It's versatile too. It works well with different flavors of syrup, with less or more coffee and with whipped cream on top, and you can drink it as an iced latte - it really is a great drink.

Remember we mentioned roasted bay leaves? Well, just changing your latte to blonde gives yourself a sweeter, more caffeinated kick to your day.

The blonde latte has 225mg of caffeine content and floral notes and citrus undertones, making it a smoother, tastier coffee to get you through the morning.

Want a little more flavor in your strong latte? Turn it into a Starbucks vanilla latte by adding vanilla syrup or drizzle some sweet and sour mocha sauce over the top.

You can even add chai spices to make a messy chai milk tea. Starbucks Lattes are strong yet customizable, so you can enjoy this beverage any way you like.

sixteen.American coffee

Americans are arguably the strongest coffee at Starbucks. It's a classic drink that's been around since the 1940s, when American soldiers found Italian espresso too strong.

The flavors you get with an Americano vary and each one is unique.

So, in terms of size, the Tall/Big/Venti Americanos come with 2/3/4 shots of coffee. The average American high has a caffeine content of 225 mg.

Topped with a variety of milks, it can really boost your energy throughout the day!

17geeister Karamell-Macchiato

Caramel Macchiatos are a unique drink at Starbucks as they contain a blend of vanilla and coffee with a caramel finish.

But they are weaker than other coffees and only hold two shots in the larger size. It's for those who like sweeter flavors, but don't want so much coffee.

This is where the Iced Caramel Macchiato comes in. The icy version holds up to 4 shots, which means you get a more powerful hit.

The reason for this is that Iced Caramel Macchiato has a much weaker flavor compared to the hot version, so adding more coffee solves that problem.

Next time you want a sweeter caffeine fix, try the Frozen Caramel Macchiato!

Do you prefer creamier espresso drinks? You can order a frozen latte macchiato.

It has the same amount of light roast coffee, but more milk, so the latte is smoother and easier to drink, despite the high caffeine content.

You can also order a regular latte macchiato, made with milk foam and served hot.

You can also get the espresso macchiato which has no frothed milk and less hot water to give you a coffee concentrate with the highest caffeine content of the three macchiato options.

Starbucks Espresso offers a flavorful and robust drink to complete a meal or start the day with energy.

Each roast and blend offers such a variety of notes that it's hard to pick a favorite. Espressos are popular because they are also high in caffeine.

If a doppio isn't enough, you can also opt for a triple espresso! Since there's no milk, it can be quite overwhelming at first, but the 225mg of caffeine makes it worth it.

The addition of blonde boosts it to 235 mg, so you're sure to be excited at meetings or classes.

19Espresso Blend Frappuccino

Most Starbucks blended frappuccinos are very low in caffeine. You balance it with a lot of sugar to taste.

This is because Frappuccinos use a special type of frapp roast, which is cold instant coffee.

It contains less caffeine but gives Starbucks drinks a smoother taste.


The espresso frappuccino is the only exception. These are espresso shots that are combined with frap roast and coffee base to create a stronger frappuccino.

Contains 185 mg of caffeine which is superior to others. It has a great coffee and classic frappuccino flavor that will give you the punch you need to get you through the day.

Flat White is a relatively recent addition to the coffee scene, appearing in Australia in the mid-1980s.Simply put, it's a blend of espresso shots with smooth, textured milk that gives it a velvety aftertaste.

It is stronger than a latte because milk does not suppress the coffee aroma and gives it a stronger flavor.

In general, a flat white at Starbucks provides 130 mg of caffeine, which is a good amount to get you through the day. Its texture and strength make it a classic drink that will provide you with everything you need!

What's a sweet, strong coffee at Starbucks?

Is espresso stronger than coffee?

A straight espresso is stronger because there is less caffeine and flavor intensity to remove or suppress.

However, espressos are not for everyone, as their taste can be overwhelming at first.

Does a darker roast mean a stronger coffee?

Not necessarily. A darker roast means it has been roasted longer at higher temperatures.

This means the caffeine has had more time to burn off or dissolve with the moisture. Lighter roasts are considered to be higher in caffeine, but darker roasts have a stronger flavor.

Starbucks coffee usually comes in a variety of roasts, but the light roast produces the strongest coffee.


Next time you go to Starbucks, don't settle for your usual order.

There's more caffeine to drink and flavors in every drink, and with such an extensive menu, Starbucks won't be short of coffee options.

If you like an extra punch, try the True Northern Blonde Filter, Starbucks' strongest coffee, but for something more low-key, a flat white will keep you energized and free of coffee jitters.
