Thanksgiving Blend is in stores on 11/1. And Melody tells her personal Thanksgiving Blend story.
Starbucks Thanksgiving Blend 2012 has landed! This coffee was first introduced into the Starbucks whole bean lineup on November 4, 2008, which was election day 2008. It’s a blend of Sumatra and Guatemala Antigua, paired together in perfect proportion, and roasted deeply. It’s pretty amazing how well these two coffees go together. This blend was created in partnership with the famous chef Tom Douglas, and really designed to work perfectly with a big savory meal. By the way, I have heard (seriously, on many occasions) partners (Starbucks calls their employees, “partners”) describe this coffee as having an Aged Sumatra component. This is false! There is no Aged Sumatra in Thanksgiving Blend . It’s the wonderful semi-washed Sumatra normally grown and processed on the island of Sumatra.
