The Return of Starbucks Tribute Blend

Tribute Blend is back

It’s true. We said we’d never bring it back. Starbucks Tribute Blend® was intended to be a once-in-a-lifetime coffee, created to celebrate you and the coffee producing communities around the world that grow the premium beans we’re so proud of. It’s a blend of four distinct coffees from around the world, incorporating the qualities each coffee growing region is famous for. The result is a spicy, full-bodied coffee with exotic notes of berry and dark cherry and a lush, syrupy mouthfeel. And you loved it.

You loved it so much you begged our baristas to bring it back. You sent us emails, left messages on Facebook and asked for its return on My Starbucks Idea.

So, because you loved it so much, we brought it back. In honor of you, and thanks to you, Starbucks Tribute Blend returns. Enjoy it while it lasts.

      I have never tasted this one, and can you kinda taste the fruit and chocolate notes in it?

        No you can't but I just bought my first k cups last week and it's all gone and I'm going to buy at least a case of it for now. If you like bold coffee you will love this one. I used to buy the French roast cause I like Expresso but can't find it in k cups. The store recommend this one and I love it. If you like your coffee strong then you will love this. It's strong but goes down real smooth.

    I, for one, am very glad that the "Tribute Blend" is back on the shelfs and behind the counters, in the hands of Starbucks' lovely Barristas.  Upon hearing of the return, it really made me wonder why the "Tribute Blend" was discontinued, and, after seeing so many requests for its return, what took so long?!

    Cheers to the "Tribute Blend!"

    Absolutely lovely blend. I really do hope it is permanent. Tried it in a Grande Misto the other day and the complexity and flavor even came through there.

    Excellent!

    I absolutely love TRIBUTE beans, k-cups and via. It's my favorite; no other coffee has affected me as much. Last year I stocked up on Tribute because i didn't want to run out! So happy that it's coming back. Thank You!!!

    Bought 6 boxes yesterday. I am not certain, but I think the blend has been altered.
    First cup I made, first thing I smelled was chocolate. Although it was a great cup of coffee,
    I will have to evaluate the next few to see if it is what Tribute started out to be!

    Amongst all the "this is yummy" comments, I thought I'* point out that I'm not a huge fan of coffee and actually prefer hot chocolate, which Starbucks does very well unlike most other coffeehouses in Chicago. However, I tried the Tribute and am a diehard Starbucks fan now. During Tribute's off-season, I switch between hot chocolate and flavored mochas. When Tribute is in, I snag 10-12 1-lb bags of whole beans and squirrel them away for the rest of the year. Spring brings much happiness.

    The stars have aligned and the beans have been roasted! Tribute once graced my coffee mug and it shall again. Can you hear that....Angels are singing....or my coffee maker is finished...I'm not sure.

    Last week in one of your stores the lady recommend the Tribute and let me tell you I drink coffee all day long. The stronger the better. I really wish Starbucks would have an expresso in the k-cup but any way I had to try the tribute and loved it. It is my new favorite and I will be buying a case to start. It's the best coffee ever!!! Thanks for bring it back for all of us who didn't know about it. I will be posting it on my Facebook also to share with my friends. Please leave on the shells !!

      you should get yourself a My K-cup i use them all the time and have two. They work great and all the starbucks coffee that I have tried have an unmatched flavor from them. Here is the link to the official site but you can also get them at your local walmart and other stores. http://www.keurig.com/accessories/my-k-cup
