I received my order in April 2010 and was disappointed to see that the expiration date on all three packages of coffee is June 2010. The same bags of Starbucks at the grocery are usually almost a year out for the expiration date. I won’t be buying coffee online again. Otherwise, the service and shipping were just fine. I’m almost always happy with my purchases from Amazon– this is a rare exception.
I must admit I’m not a fan of the brewed coffee at Starbucks. It has a one-note taste to me, and that taste is: Burnt. I’m not even a fan of most of their beans. There are only two blends they sell that I love: The Christmas Blend (a little different every year, but always good) and this one. It doesn’t have that heavy, dark, bitter signature Starbucks taste, so if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll be disappointed. It’s mild and bright, which is just what I want when I go down to my Cuisinart Brew Central
at 6 AM for a cup. Because of this blend’s mildness, I always add an extra tablespoon or two to the pot, to make the flavor a little richer. It’s not necessary, but I think it improves the taste.
Incidentally, darker roasts do not have more caffeine, even if psychologically they seem to have a bigger “kick.” This blend may be easy to drink, but it’s got plenty of punch in the caffeine department — my definition of a “good morning”!
Got this for the office morning coffee gang, and it does the job. Its nothing exotic or special, but its a very balanced, relatively mild coffee that goes well with donuts and whatnot. And for the price that I got it for ($12 shipped for a 3 pack) it cant be beat. We used to have Peet’s and various other coffee but most people prefer Starbucks; but whether it actually tastes better or its just the hype I dont know =P.

This is my favorite Starbucks coffee…nice and mild and flavorful. I do not like heavy or darks roasts…this one hits the spot..
