Raspberry Coffee Beans
Starbucks does not currently offer any drinks made with raspberry-flavored coffee beans. The raspberry drinks on the Starbucks menu all contain standard coffee beans and raspberry syrup or sauce. The raspberry flavor comes from the added syrups, not the beans themselves.
Some small batch specialty coffee roasters do offer limited-edition raspberry-flavored coffee beans. They soak beans in raspberry juice or oils to infuse them with flavor. However, flavored beans like this are not mass-produced and are not available at Starbucks.
Why Starbucks Doesn’t Sell Raspberry Beans
There are a few reasons why Starbucks does not offer raspberry coffee beans:
- Difficult to mass-produce – It’s challenging to consistently infuse beans with raspberry flavor on a large scale.
- Focus on natural coffee taste – Starbucks aims to highlight the inherent flavor of quality coffee beans.
- Lack of demand – Most Starbucks customers prefer adding syrups rather than flavored beans.
- Preference for versatility – Flavored beans limit how drinks can be customized with other syrups.
Closest Option to Raspberry Beans
The closest drink you can get to the flavor of raspberry coffee beans at Starbucks is asking for an iced coffee or cold brew with raspberry syrup. The cold temperature helps the raspberry flavor infuse into the coffee rather than just coating it.
Raspberry Coffee Alternatives
If you like the taste of raspberry coffee but can’t find the beans, here are some alternatives:
- Raspberry mocha – The classic way to get raspberry coffee flavor at Starbucks.
- Raspberry cappuccino – Raspberry syrup added to espresso and foamed milk.
- Iced raspberry latte – Cooler take on the latte with raspberry syrup.
- Raspberry iced tea – Black iced tea with raspberry syrup for a fruity caffeine boost.
- Pink drink – Starbucks’ Strawberry Acai Refresher blended with coconut milk.
Starbucks has lots of delicious raspberry-flavored coffee drinks made with syrups and sauces, but does not currently offer raspberry flavored coffee beans. The raspberry options are limited to add-in syrups and seasonal specials. To get the closest raspberry coffee bean experience, order an iced coffee with raspberry syrup. But for now, flavored beans remain a niche product not mass-produced for Starbucks’ global scale.
