Starbucks / Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas Blend
Posted November 19, 2015 / Starbucks / Have Yourself A Very Merry Christmas Blend
In 2015, as the American media stirred controversy over the lack of Christmas imagery on Starbucks red cups, the coffee company was preparing to introduce its perennially-anticipated Christmas Blend for the 31st year in a row. Indeed, before Starbucks created Christmas Blend in 1984, Christmas coffee wasn’t even a thing.
To celebrate Christmas Blend Vintage 2015 we traveled to the original Starbucks store at 1912 Pike Place in Seattle, invited some customers to join us for an exclusive private cupping, and spoke to Howard Schultz and his master blenders and roasters about what makes this coffee special.
I was extremely stoked to partner with my new friends at 72 and Sunny on this project.
