StarbucksĀ® Tribute Blend

Here's to you.

What began as a once-in-a-lifetime coffee--a tribute to our customers, partners and roasters--has become one of our most loved and requested blends. It's the culmination of the finest arabica beans, innovative farming practices and never-ending passion. Now it's an annual spring tradition that's worth the wait. This inspired blend features four of our favorite coffees: sun-dried beans from Ethiopia with a flourish of dark cherry; Aged Sumatra, loved for its syrupy body and cedary spice notes; juicy, herbal coffees from Papua New Guinea; and our Colombia coffee, bright, balanced and nutty. Pair this intense, deeply layered coffee with friends, neighbors and warm spring days.

How to Brew

Recipe for great coffee

  1. Use cold, filtered water and a clean machine.
  2. Grind beans just before brewing:
    • Coarse for coffee press
    • Medium for automatic drip
  3. Measure 2 tbsp (10 g) ground coffee for every 6 fl oz (180 ml) water.

To help preserve that fresh flavor, keep this bag sealed tight in a cabinet (not in the refrigerator) and brew within a week of opening.

The Starbucks Roast

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

Did You Know?

Starbucks Tribute BlendĀ® is a post-roast blend, meaning the coffees were blended after being roasted. Our roasters chose to make this a post-roast blend so they could highlight the berry notes of the sun-dried Ethiopian coffee.
