It’s definitely winter where I am! It feels like -45 degrees here so I thought today would be the perfect day to review the Costco Starbucks Winter Blend Whole Bean Coffee.


This is a delicious, easy to drink medium roast whole bean Arabica coffee that not only warms you up on a cold winter day but also wakes you up! The beans are from the Asia/Pacific region and are This coffee is nice and full-bodied, not very acidic and has a little bit of nut flavor to it. It’s rich, smooth, robust tasting coffee.

The 1.13 kg bag of Starbucks Winter Blend coffee is $22.99 Canadian at Costco (regular price). I was able to purchase it on sale for six dollars off which is very reasonable!


These are whole beans so you do have to grind them and make your coffee. Not as convenient as coffee pods (which I use every day for work). Some people (like my husband) love grinding their own beans and making fresh coffee. If you only drink coffee occasionally or want to keep the beans fresh they do freeze rather well.


Coffee without cream or sugar basically has 0 calories but whether caffeine is healthy for you is completely up to you to decide!

This is a nice tasting coffee and the price at Costco when on sale (or even at regular price) can’t be beaten.

  1. Beware: this coffee roast is NOT medium. It is on the dark side (hence a more bitter – or “burnt” in a previous comment – taste) and consequently somewhat oily. Should NOT be used in automatic coffee machines with built-in grinders.

  2. The Winter blend is my favourite, too! It’s always slightly different each year, and I always love it.

    I’ve tried the Starbucks inhouse blends, the Kirkland House and Expresso, and the House blend is smooth. The expresso is not dark enough for me. I usually go for very dark french roasts, but since having Covid19, my taste buds, once they came back, have changed a lot- which has been interesting to say the least. It’s really affected what coffee I like. The Level Ground I didn’t like, too light a roast and, to me, bitter. But the Winter blend makes me happy.

    Thank you for your reviews!

  3. ” Delicious ” omgosh it So nice & strong & flavorful….is Now my Favorite!!!
    I want more, but can’t find it? Wondering if COSTCO is out of it?
    PLEASE – ORDER it again and for next year too! Thank you! : 😊 ☕️☕️☕️☕️☕️🎁🎄

  4. Just tried it and to me it tastes terrible like it’s burnt, even before you blend your beans. I don’t know what to do with it no one in my house will drink it.
