Anniversary Blend, the coffee that encapsulates 50 years of Starbucks


Starbucks celebrates 50 years with special Anniversary Blend
A bold blend ethically sourced exclusively from Indonesia
Testament to the past and a celebration of the future

At Starbucks, we celebrate milestones with coffee, from a single store at Pike Place Market to more than 32,000 stores globally, the limited-edition Starbucks® Anniversary Blend celebrates our milestone of 50 years.

This year’s Starbucks® Anniversary Blend – a full-bodied, robust, and undeniably bold coffee – is ethically sourced exclusively from Indonesia, the esteemed coffee growing region that has inspired us since 1971.

In terms of taste, Anniversary Blend has herbal characteristics, layers of spice notes and a smooth buttery mouthfeel, synonymous with the Indonesian growing region. It is a smooth coffee, with complex notes of smoked cedar, allspice, lingering accents of black truffle, and fresh tarragon.

We created Starbucks® Anniversary Blend in 1996 to celebrate our 25th anniversary. The siren is the star of the bag, with each Anniversary Blend having it’s very own uniquely created siren. This year’s siren, specially designed for Starbucks 50th, is reflecting on our heritage and boldly looking to the future…

Our aspiration is to be people positive—investing in humanity and the well-being of everyone we connect with, from our partners, to coffee farmers, to the customers in our stores and beyond.

Our vision for the future is to become resource positive—giving back more than we take from the planet. And we know we can’t do it alone. It takes all of us.

The coffee tree in the sirens hands represents that coffee is at our heart, inspiring our craft and driving innovation—in our drinks, our food, our stores, and new ways we bring the Starbucks Experience to you wherever you are.

Conservation International and Starbucks, joined by more than 130 other organisations, have a collective mission to make coffee the world’s first sustainable agricultural product. Today, 99 percent of the coffee Starbucks buys around the world is verified under its Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) Practices, which has helped farmers improve their environmental performance and weather the impacts of climate change for more than 15 years.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, we’re excited to share this amazing coffee with you, and raise a cup in celebration of our future.


Anniversary Blend is available for a limited time at participating stores across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. To find your nearest store, click here. Order in store, via the Starbucks App, or on Starbucks Delivers.
