Starbucks Reserve is the name we give to rare and remarkable coffees. And this holiday season, we’re blending two of them to create an unforgettable cup. Carrying on the Starbucks Reserve Christmas tradition, this year’s blend joins two extremely limited coffees: Hacienda Alsacia, grown at our very own farm in Costa Rica, and hand-selected aged Sumatra. Both are exceptional in their own right, and both are roasted artfully at our Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle. Our master blenders have forged a vibrant, modern expression of the holiday—with savory spice notes and sweet brightness, it is the gift of extraordinary flavor, a celebration of all the season’s beauty. We created the design on this card in collaboration with Costa Rican artist Erykah Zeledón Salazar. It tells the story of two lush coffee-growing ecosystems coming together in this year’s distinctive holiday blend.
