We craft the Christmas Blend with heart and joy every year, but this year has something extra special. We’ve created a blend inspired by our 1984 recipe – with all the original sweetness and spice. Dark-roasted beans from Guatemala, Colombia and Papua New Guinea come together to highlight the hero of this cup: our rare aged Sumatra. Notes of herbs, baking spices and a velvety, rich chocolate finish will fill your cup with festivity. Christmas Blend is nostalgic, comforting and a delicious symbol of a wonderful time of year. The return of this Starbucks tradition heralds a familiar feeling of holiday warmth.
The ground version was created to provide convenience and an easy gifting opportunity. It allows you to purchase the coffee and bring it to a dinner, party, or home for brewing without owning a grinder. The grind is best as a drip, but could be used for a press.
Also available in VIA and Origami variants.

Espresso lovers, this blend is for you – an indulgent, roasty coffee with notes of mulling spices, smoked vanilla and sugar plum. For the first time, we’re adding sun-dried Ethiopia Sidamo beans to this blend of Costa Rican and Sumatran coffee. We begin with beans from Costa Rica Bella Vista as a base of nuttiness and bright acidity. To this base we add earthiness and spiciness from Sumatra and aged Sumatra. We finish off with Sun-dried Ethiopia Sidamo beans, bringing a plummy sweetness intensified by the espresso extraction process. All these coffees bring an extra layer of luxury to this classic blend, ideal for espresso beverages and equally superb as brewed coffee. Here’s to those who like their holiday season decadent.
