  1. Coffee beans get oily when the roasting profile is too dark. So, coffee roasting is basically: light roast > medium roast > dark roast. If it’s oily, it’s beyond dark roast.

  2. Because they are over-roasted. Which is not preferred for a real coffee.
    So why they are doing this? If you roast darker the taste of beans became narrow. I mean coal… So you can easily serve the same taste in your every shop worldwide.

  3. As you will know (assuming you did read my bio before asking for my answer), I know nothing about Starbucks. However, oiliness depends upon the way coffee beans are dried and then roasted. Since I imagine Starbucks tries to achieve uniformity across its outlets worldwide, its suppliers and roasters are probably required to prepare its coffee beans to give exactly the same finished product in every batch. If that finish happens to be oily then that’s why.
