Spark the Spirit of the Season as Christmas Returns to Starbucks 
Promotion Period: November 2, 2015 January 7, 2016  

Starbucks® Christmas Blend combines lively Latin American beans with mellow Indonesian coffees and rare aged Sumatra. Artfully roasted and expertly blended to be both spicy and sweet. 

Starbucks® Christmas Blonde Roast is specially crafted by Starbucks master roasters, this coffee is roasted for a shorter time bringing out the warm, woodsy aromas and flavors of brown sugar, sweet oranges and all-spice. 

Starbucks® Christmas Blend Espresso Roast is inspired by the tradition of Christmas blend, this coffee starts with Latin American beans perfect for a darker roast, then adds Indonesian beans from Sumatra that add herbal and spice notes. A common misconception is that this is Christmas Blend, only roasted darker. This isn’t the case, but this coffee was inspired by the taste profiles of both Christmas Blend and Starbucks Espresso Roast. 

Starbucks Origami is a new single-use fresh brewed coffee that uses the exact same high quality arabica beans we use in our whole bean coffees. 

Our artful blend of the finest aged Sumatra, lively Latin American and mellow Indonesian instant and microground 100% Arabica coffee creates layers of deep spiciness and a touch of sweetness to enjoy wherever, whenever. Starbucks VIA® Christmas Blend makes a thoughtful gift for coffee lovers, and is a way for anyone to enjoy Starbucks coffee at home or on the go.
