Brazil Nova Resende (March 2015 Roastery Subscription Coffee - First ever subscription coffee)
Brazil Nova Resende:
I attended a coffee tasting of this at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room. Here’s more information on this coffee.
This coffee was launched in Starbucks Reserve stores in North America on February 17, 2015, corresponding with the announcement of the all-new Reserve coffee subscription. I found a news article on this here.
This coffee was available at Reserve locations everywhere AND as the Subscription coffee. So it does have a Reserve tasting card. However, the Reserve tasting cards that were * exclusive * to the Subscription Coffees didn't start until Rwanda Abakundakawa.
Between March 2015 and February 2016, the Reserve Subscription coffees came with a tall info card (you can see what I mean here) only. Beginning in February 2016, Roastery Subscribers received both in the mail: Tall info card and Reserve taster card.
