Verismo™ Brewed Coffee Pods, exclusively for the Verismo® System

This is the high-quality arabica coffee you love from Starbucks, roasted, ground and packaged specially for single-cup use with the Verismo® System. Just before brewing, remove the freshness tab from the bottom of the pod. Insert brewed coffee pod into machine and push "Brewed" button for a delicious cup of coffee.

Pods are for single use only. Never reuse. Use coffee pod only with coffee brew cycle. Misuse of pods can damage machine.

Each coffee requires slightly different amounts of time and temperature during the roasting process to create a cup at its peak of aroma, acidity, body and flavor. We classify our coffees in three roast profiles so you can easily find your desired flavor and intensity.

  • Blonde: Blonde-roasted coffees have a shorter roast time, lighter body and mellow flavors.
  • Medium: Medium-roasted coffees are balanced with smooth and rich flavors.
  • Dark: Dark-roasted coffees feature a fuller body and robust, bold flavors.

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.

Verismo™ Anniversary Blend Brewed Coffee Pods

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.

    Too strong A little bit to strong for my liking. But add milk might be ok. October 6, 2013
    Delicious! 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! October 4, 2013
    Great addition 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! September 28, 2013
    If you like Verona you will love this blend Bolder than Verona. Rich not bitter ... A Starbucks Classic. September 27, 2013
    Full body and smoo-o-oth! 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! September 27, 2013
