Then there are the dessert items for the sweet tooth-ers.
Starbucks Coffee Rolls are back too in a new tin can! It’s a new take on the crispy wafer rolls…infused with Starbucks Espresso Roast.
New Starbucks Coffee Blends
Try the new Starbucks coffee blends being introduced this year – two Reserve blends and one regular blend.
The beans of the Starbucks Reserve Brazil Sertao Yellow Bourbon come from the Sertao Estate, one of the first farms to produce coffee in Carmo de Minas, an area famous for its Yellow Bourbon variety. This blend features floral aromas with plum and dark chocolate notes and honey sweetness.
The Starbucks Reserve Tanzania Chagga blend comes from coffee beans grown in tiny farms circling Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. These lands have been tilled by the people of the Chagga tribe for hundreds of years, passing it down from one generation to the next. The blend features floral aromas with flavors of citrus peel and warm brown spices.
The beans of the Guatemala Casa Cielo come from the Antigua region of Guatemala. Taste the complementary flavors of rich chocolates, nuts, caramel, apples, berry, and lemon.
