Welcome to the second round of my Starbucks Whole Bean Bag Art Review where I share and celebrate the art encompassing a one pound bags of Starbucks coffee.
The first bag art up for celebration this time around is the “Christmas Blend” and it is hardy and robust and extremely BOLD!
Starbucks has a yearly “Christmas” and “Holiday” bag of beans and I
find the color and the spirit of this emboldened tradition effective in
de Chiapas” is a delightful smoky blend of beans. You get the feeling
of the earth and good people in this bag art. You wonder what’s just
beyond the burning horizon — and you hope it isn’t your pot of coffee!
Estima” is a special blend and a pamphlet discussing the social
goodwill of the beans is attached to the bag. The coffee is smooth and
tawny. The leaves and the beans and the people punch out at you from
this bag coercing you to love it.
“Terraza Blend” is a cooler, lazier, coffee and the bag art says it
all: “We are jazzy. We are funky. We are the hepcat color combo of
brown, blue and silver!”
“Starbucks 35th Anniversary Special Blend” is a bag I didn’t want to
open because of the art would vanish along with the beans. The silvery
Starbucks mermaid swirls around the coffee in an ongoing orgasmic dance
of the senses and taste sensations.
Florentina” claims it is “complex and juicy” and the bag art confirms
that tasty argument! This blend speaks to you from The Old World in red
ochre and scuttled maps and plump beans and orangy golds. The bag art
is definitely beautiful — my favorite design in this round — and a
reminder of what makes life worth drinking.
special “Brazil” blend laughs at you from the bag art. There’s a
Carnivale in every cup! The flowers and the faces become one in a
glorious artistic aesthetic.
That wraps up this edition of the Starbucks Whole Bean Bag Art Review. We’ll be back soon with Round Three!
Keep your feet on the grounds and keep reaching for the Starbucks!
