I am a very big fan of dark roast coffees and a have plenty of favorites, but Starbucks Christmas Blend is at the top of my list because it is more consistent than any other cup of coffee that I have ever tried. It has a great mix of flavors, is strong but not too strong, and it's not expensive even though it is a seasonal blend.
I drink just about every coffee with plenty of milk and plenty of sugar, but with Christmas Blend I usually only use a little bit of both because I actually like the flavor of the grounds. There's a slight earthiness that I really like, but it's the punch of spices that really does it for me. It's just a coffee that gives you different flavors that work very well together in every sip.
I have heard that Starbucks is going to start selling this stuff all year round, so I may have finally found a single coffee that I can stick to. This is great because up until the winter time I have a hard time finding any coffees that I can count on every single time I brew them.
This is a one of a kind coffee that I find myself recommending to everyone.
