Colombia Cerro Azul returned the Seattle Reserve Roastery on May 21, 2019.
This is a Geisha varietal coffee which appears roughly once a year at the Reserve Roastery. Here it is in June 2017. There was a 2016 release of this coffee which was a China Asia Pacific market release only. The 2016 release was not offered in the United States.
This coffee launched on May 29, 2019. Rumor has it that it is a Seattle Reserve Roastery exclusive coffee and that Starbucks only sourced a few hundred pounds of it. It retails for $80 per half pound.
Kenya Kangunu launched at the Reserve Roastery in Seattle at the very beginning of March 2019. This coffee has been offered in previous seasons. This coffee was a StarbucksStore.com offering in March of 2017. Obviously, the 2017 release was a different crop year, but Starbucks has sourced this coffee previously for the Starbucks Reserve program.
