A Miracle From Sumatra in Starbucks Anniversary Blend


Long ago, Sumatran coffee was transported to Europe in the wooden hulls of sailing ships where it took on intriguing flavors. Since 1996, Starbucks has been honoring the the passage of time with our Anniversary Blend. To make Starbucks® Anniversary Blend, we carefully age rare Sumatra coffee for three to five years, then combine it with other thoughtfully chosen coffees. The result is a complex, hearty flavor with distinctive, cedary spice notes that our customers have come to know and love.
