Just today, I noticed that people are starting to tweet about Starbucks Christmas Blend in a Blonde Roast profile.  And then, in my email, this photo of the new Blonde Roast Christmas Blend just showed up.  This sounds really interesting to me.  I am definitely game to try it.  I would imagine it to be extremely spicy because of the aged Sumatra component, and I can’t quite imagine how that works as a blonde roast.

Have any baristas reading this tried it?  It seems as though it is just now beginning to appear in stores.  I am so curious to try this.  I will try it with an open mind!
