What really captures the spirit of the holiday season? 

Is it the month?
Is it the music?
Is it the decor?

No. It’s the seasonal coffee, and you know it. 

This is Seattle we’re talking about, and not only are we internationally famous coffee lovers, but we’re proud of it, too. That’s why there’s nothing better for getting into the festive feeling than a warm, fragrant beverage in your hands. So, you can imagine our excitement when Seattle’s iconic Starbucks Reserve® Roastery dropped its holiday menu and gift sets!

Starbucks Reserve® locations around the world stand above the rest by providing a premium coffee experience. These stores offer unique small-batch coffees brewed by baristas through different techniques.

Seattle’s flagship Starbucks Reserve® Roastery opened in the Capitol Hill neighborhood back in 2014. The building itself is iconic, but that’s not all that’s special about it. The Seattle Roastery represents Starbucks heritage and a deep passion for coffee, and if that sounds relatable, you’re going to want to keep scrolling…

Starbucks Reserve® just announced its new holiday menu lineup, and it’s enough to make you salivate. Get into the holiday spirit with all the signature flavours of the season, like peppermint, mocha, hazelnut, nutmeg, and maple.
