I'm not new to the Starbucks brand of coffee. I did a review on their Naturals Fusions Cinnamon flavor coffee about a year ago and didn't really care for it. But I wanted to give Starbucks the benefit of the doubt, thinking it was just the variety we got.
I was WRONG.

The Starbucks Rewards Code program
inside of the 'sticker'
Not entirely SURE what the 'Starbucks Rewards' program is. From what I understand, it's a loyalty program that allows you to earn Stars by paying with a registered Starbucks Card, the Starbucks mobile app or by entering Star codes from specially marked Starbucks® products. In return, you can earn free drinks, free refills, free food and more. Our household doesn't buy bagged Starbucks coffee or visit a Starbucks coffee shop enough to actually use this program.
As for the taste of the coffee, again, it was bitter. I was able to use my normal amounts of sugar and milk, but I was still able to taste the bitter undertones of the coffee.
Mixing the grounds with another brand (in our case, Maxwell House) made the taste MUCH more tolerable.
Disabled people will have trouble using the bags the grounds come in. The openings are small and it's hard to get the grounds out when over half the bag is gone. I would recommend disabled people pour the bag of grounds into a different canister (old coffee can or a plastic coffee tub) or use the K-Cup method for ease.
I was hoping this variety of the Starbucks brand of coffee would be better than the Natural Fusion brand we tried in the past. It wasn't. I would NOT purchase this variety.
WOULD RECOMMEND: No
