Organic Yukon Blend®
Gutsy, robust and ready to face the untamed northern reaches, this coffee has a tale as old as Starbucks itself.
As the legend goes, back in 1971 the original owners of Starbucks crafted this blend for one of our customers – the captain of a fishing fleet who wanted to keep his crew happy in chilly sub-arctic seas.
His was no ordinary request. Our coffee had to stand up to frigid mornings and long days spent fishing in the icy waters where the Yukon River feeds into the Bering Sea. And so we created Yukon Blend: a hearty, bold, well-rounded coffee that laughs in the face of nature at its most rugged. No wonder it became one of our most popular coffees.
Now it’s better than ever as a 100% certified organic coffee. A balanced blend of Latin American and Sumatran beans, Organic Yukon Blend® is warm and smooth, revealing deep spicy notes for the adventurer in all of us – perfect with sweet flavors like cinnamon, raisins, oatmeal and chocolate.
People often ask me, “What’s your favorite coffee?” I tell them it’s hard, like trying to choose your favorite child (for you parents out there). At any given time, we have 20 or so different coffees in our whole bean lineup. Light- and dark-roasted, blends and single-origin offerings from every corner of the coffee world. From earthy and spicy Sumatra , to smoky-sweet Italian Roast, to the vibrant acidity and brightness of our Breakfast Blend… how could I pick just one?
But I can pick just one. And for me it’s Yukon Blend®.
