This year, Starbucks will be launching Anniversary Blend K-Cups® into their lineup. They will be available on September 4, 2012. The whole K-Cup line up is fairly new for Starbucks, and was first introduced about one year ago. For those who do not know, K-Cups are designed for use in a Keurig coffee maker. I think this will be good news for Keurig coffee maker enthusiasts. As for myself, honestly, I am ambivalent. I don't own a Keurig machine, so there's almost nothing I can say about the cup of coffee produced by it. The pour over brew method still seems to me like the easiest thing in the world for a great cup of coffee. But I really would imagine that K-Cups fan will think this is good news! I must have some readers who own a Keurig coffee maker! I noticed that Starbucks has a promo right now offering a $5.00 Starbucks gift card when you buy multiple packs of K-Cups in one transaction. Take a look at this: Starbucks K-Cup Promotion ending September 30, 2012. Notice that you can also enter a giveaway for a year's supply of Starbucks® K-Cup® packs.
Are there any Keurig fans reading this? What do you think of Anniversary Blend as a K-Cup offering? (I'm tempted to say that Anniversary Blend would make a great Via but that's a little bit sacrilegious.)
