Every November, colorful bags of Starbucks holiday coffee arrives in stores, whether as a gift or as a treat to yourself. Introduced in 1984, the Christmas Blend is a holiday tradition, a comforting and delicious symbol of the most wonderful time of the year.
This year, the Christmas Blend features a dark roast of aged Sumatra beans, together with beans from Guatemala, Colombia and Papua New Guinea. With notes of herbs, baking spices and a velvety rich chocolate finish, the blend is reminiscent of the sweetness and spice of the original 1984 blend.
Fun fact: When Starbucks first launched the Christmas Blend, it was sold in plain brown paper bags to be brewed at home!
