I have bought the Christmas Blend for numerous years. We always look forward to a great cup of Christmas Blend after Christmas dinner. Our guests loved it so much that they buy it every year. The 2014 Christmas Blend was just not the same. It seemed very acidic/bitter. Something changed with the recipe? A few of our guests told me that they returned their package to Starbucks. I could not finish the 1 lb. bag. Please bring back the old recipe that we all loved!!!
The coffee brews up very well and is tasty. My only complaint is that there are a *lot* of small pieces in the bag instead of whole beans. Almost like it's what was left in the machine after roasting, the dregs. I've never purchased a bag of coffee from anywhere that had this large an amount of bean pieces. I guess in the long run it doesn't matter but it was disconcerting.
I look forward to Christmas at Starbuck's for the Christmas Blend coffee. The last two years I have purchased three bags of coffee to enjoy past the holidays. Has a great flavor!! I recommend this to everyone.
I love the Christmas Blend and didnt make it to any of the Starbucks in town to buy it before it was sold out. I was soo surprised to find it was available at StarbucksStore.com. I received my order quickly and was surprised to find a gift was included with my order.

Tried a pound of your "Christmas Blend" at the holidays as a treat to ourselves, because it was a great deal, and we are huge coffee fans! Lo and behold we liked it so much we bought 3 more online! Thank you Starbucks!
I was delighted to find your Xmas coffee on sale and purchased it as an after Xmas gift for a friend. I was particularly pleased and surprised that Starbucks also included and additional gift for me to try. Thank you!! Will order from the website again.
