Starbucks launches the Blonde Roast coffees today: Veranda and Willow blends

Today is launch day for the new Starbucks Blonde Roast coffees.  Feel free to talk about them here, or how customers like them at your store.  I will have a longer blog post up later this week on the same topic.  I will be attending a "Blonde Roast media relations" event later today, along with other Seattle-area journalists, and I'll write about that later.  (I don't really consider myself a journalist, but it seems that blogs are now journalism.)  My twitter feed already has several people talking about these new coffees, so I realized that I had to get something up here too quickly! (Silly me that I didn't plan this until 7:15 am on the 10th). A Seattle Times article here discusses these new coffees, and references my earlier tasting of Veranda and Willow.

From my twitter feed, Donna's review of the Veranda is here.

Here is  Rachel's immediate reaction of Veranda, also from twitter.

And lastly, I got this tweet from Frank about trying the Veranda blend coffee.

I am looking forward to the excitement of today!  As I said, I will write more later in a separate blog post.

Hope everyone is having a great Blonde Roast launch day!
