New Starbucks Blonde For Weak Coffee Drinkers

Introducing Blonde, Coffee Lite For Starbucks Fiends

Do you belong to the camp of believers who are convinced Starbucks's coffee is way too strong? If so, there's a new blend for you.

Enter Starbucks Blonde, a new "super-premium light roast coffee." It was unveiled in New York today and will roll out in Starbucks stores, and as whole bean, roast, ground, Via, and K-Cup packs in supermarkets as well, come January 2012.

Perhaps weak coffee will take off just like low-alcohol cocktails have in the past year. I'm curious to know: will the super-light coffee come with a lighter price tag as well?

I love the taste of Starbucks coffee. Not a fan of the elaborate drinks - just black coffee (hot or iced). I like the strength, so I probably won't try the Blonde. As far as price goes, if you just get regular coffee, Starbucks isn't expensive at all. If you like iced coffee, a tall at Starbucks is $1.85, a small iced coffee at McDonald's (Green Mountain) is $1.99, and a small iced coffee at Dunkin Donuts is $2.05... so it's actually the cheapest (although I don't know if the ounces are the same for all the "smalls/talls".

Not a big fan of Barstucks either--it's wicked strong and too spendy. But I will probably try a cup if I find myself near one when a coffee jones hits.

I like this idea and am interested to try it. I'm not a fan of Starbucks coffee because it's so strong (Dunkin' Donuts all the way...and it's cheaper), but I'd definitely give this a go!
