Anniversary Blend Brewed Coffee Verismo® Pods, 12 count
Rare Aged Sumatra beans add cedary flavor to this coffee, reminiscent of coffees transported in wooden-hull sailing ships of long ago. Coffee traveling from Indonesia to Europe was exposed to fluctuating temperatures in the wooden hulls, allowing the unroasted beans to take on intriguing flavors, much like the Aged Sumatra in this blend. Carefully aged for three to five years, these beans' cedar spice notes and full body combine beautifully with other Asia / Pacific coffees.
This coffee is specially packaged in 12 – (9g) pods for exclusive use with the Verismo® System.
Did You Know?
In 1996, we created Starbucks® Anniversary Blend to commemorate our 25th year. The flavor was so unique, so amazingly bold, we were instantly enamoured. Now the celebration continues.

This may replace my first choice - but not yet in Verissimo pods - Gold Coast for taste. Compared this to Pike's Place, found it a bit closer to my favorite Gold Coast. Too bad it's only a seasonal, but then it couldn't be called 'Anniversary Blend'.
We love the Anniversary blend, it is flavorful, not to bold, it is our go to every morning.
The flavor is rich and full-bodied. Subtle blend of aromas.
A little bit to strong for my liking. But add milk might be ok.
This has great taste and flavor with a perfect amount of spices! Goes great with some spice creamer to bring out the flavor to its fullest!
Like many, the only complaint I have with the system is the limited choices of pods. I grabbed the Anniversary blend while traveling, and enjoy the more complex flavor.
Don't be put off by the word "spicy"- it doesn't have any bite or aftertaste (like the Chi-which is appropriate).
As others have stated, this is my new go-to flavor.
Looking forward to more variety as well!
I'm a lover of the Verona Roast, but the Anniversary Blend kicks it to the side. I prefer Anniversary Blend as my everyday coffee while it lasts. I hope they actually make it as a permanent part of the Verismo pod selections, because this should not be discontinued.
The blend is bold, but not bitter, and amazingly smooth without a sharp bite like say, Sumatra.
I wish I could drink Anniversary Blend all day without getting caffeine overdose. Decaf selection perhaps??
Without a doubt, this is an excellent blend!
Bolder than Verona. Rich not bitter ... A Starbucks Classic.
Great tasting, just like visiting the store. Please keep introducing new offerings and consider larger packages! Starbucks Verisimo for life customer!!
I was happy to see another variety added to the Verismo pods with such great, full flavor.
