Hi! My name is Mani, and I worked on the development and launch of Starbucks® Natural Fusions. We’ve heard lots of your comments and questions, and we wanted to make sure that you have the latest information.
Many of you have asked: where’s hazelnut? We hear you on this flavor request. Because Starbucks® Natural Fusions are made with natural flavors and real ingredients ground right in, developing a nut-based product has allergen implications that we have to work through. I can’t promise we’ll figure this out, but we are definitely looking at it. We would also love to figure out how to offer a mocha-flavored coffee – more to come on this front!
One other big request we hear is for a whole bean offering. On the whole bean front, the way we develop this product is by blending our freshly roasted coffee with real ingredients and natural flavors. Each component is carefully measured, mixed, and ground together for a consistent cup of coffee with every brew. Since grinding is a necessary part of the process, a whole bean version just isn’t possible.
We’re so glad to hear from flavored coffee lovers like you who aren’t willing to compromise on coffee quality or taste! If you haven’t tried Starbucks® Natural Fusions, it is currently available in Vanilla, Caramel and Cinnamon at Target, Wal-Mart and many major grocery stores. Pick up a bag today and experience it for yourself.
