SWAP YO’ DROP: STARBUCKS®
Into Starbucks-style coffee, but want to try your luck with us? We break down our coffee comparison in this handy lil’ blog.
We hear you. It’s fashion, a trend, a statement. Sure, we can’t deliver your coffee with a whipped cream confetti-sprinkled-unicorn-marshmallow topping, but we can certainly offer up our cuppas for comparison.
If you’re loving Starbucks® coffee and want to give us a go, we’ve broken down our comparisons in this handy lil’ blog (and chart to boot!). Woot, woot! So whether you go with Brewster (us) or The Siren (the two-tailed Starbucks® mermaid), you’re all clued up on your options.
SWAP YO’ DROP: STARBUCKS®
ITALIAN ROAST → URBAN BREW MIND BLOWING (#14)
A roast with the most! For a perky pizzaz and all that jazz, switch up the bold roasted notes of Starbucks® with our #14. We’ll warn you – it’ll knock your socks off. So don’t blame us when you’re sipping bare feet, wondering what happened!
ESPRESSO ROAST → URBAN BREW VERY INTENSE (#12)
Rich, caramelly (we swear that’s a word) and full of personality, espresso yourself with our Intensity #12 if you’re looking for a new kind of cuppa. For those who are a fan of the complex, full-bodied flavour of this Starbucks® blend, you’ll love our classic #12 cuppa. Go on, go for it! We believe in you.
SINGLE ORIGIN SUMATRA → URBAN BREW INTENSE (#10)
If single-origin is your thang, swap the earthy, spicy notes of Starbucks® Sumatra blend with our #10 intensity. Our #10 blend gives maximum flavour and strength for a deliciously strong coffee every time.
CAFFE VERONA → URBAN BREW INTENSE (#10)
Same for Verona! If you want to make the switch, our #10 meets the dark cocoa and burnt sugar profile of this blend and gives it a good ol’ smack in the face! Brew up the short shot and drink it fast for a cafe-style sip no Italian-style blend can compare to.
PIKE PLACE ROAST → URBAN BREW STRONG (#8)
Into Pike Place, but lookin’ for a taste from a different place? We’re comin’ on it to suggest our intensity #8. For a well-balanced, no-nonsense straight up cuppa that is more faithful than a Fat Man Scoop remix, get into this blend (and if you’ve got a $10 dollar bill, put ya hands UP!).
HOUSE BLEND → URBAN BREW STRONG (#8) or INTENSE (#12)
Ah, the House Blend! This is probably Starbucks® most-loved blend and the staple roast they use for all their coffees. If you’re into a long black and have your coffee without milk, go for our legendary #8. It’s packed full of flavour and loaded with zing (if zing’s your thing!). If you like a bit of milk, drop our Intensity #12 into your machine - heck, drop two, top it up with a bit more hot water and finish off that cuppa with frothed cow’s/almond/oat milk!
BLONDE ESPRESSO ROAST → URBAN BREW MEDIUM (#6)
Light and alright! Our smooth, sweet #6 is the perfect comparison to the Blonde Espresso, a coffee blend that’s all about delicacy and deliciousness. If you’re a boldly mellow kind of fellow, pick up our #6! It won’t come in the pretty yellow packaging or jazzed up with a two-tailed mermaid on the cup, but it’ll certainly do the trick.
DECAF ESPRESSO → URBAN BREW DECAF
Er… we’ll just leave this here. It’s a no-brainer, really…
We hope you enjoyed that. If you're keen, give us a go and let us know how we did. We sadly don't come with a gazillion cult following (yet ????) but we DO come with a 100% money-back guarantee. So try your luck, ditch the Bucks, and we'll see you on the other side!
