Starbucks Blonde is an attempt to offer a wider selection and attract some of those milder coffee drinkers to the brand.

When is Starbucks New Blonde Roast Coffee Being Released?
And where can I buy it?
Starbucks released its new blonde coffee in its cafes and in supermarkets on January 10, 2012. Canadians had to wait a bit longer until February, 2012.
Why Did Starbucks Release Blonde Roast?
Starbucks released the new Blonde coffee roast in an effort to offer more selection and attract that fairly substantial number of people (54 million) who prefer a lighter roast coffee. Previously, the range at Starbucks went from Breakfast Roast to French Roast. This new roast allows customers an even wider choice than they had before and allows Starbucks to compete against companies like McDonald's and Dunkin' Donuts who offer coffees that are milder.
What Is The Blonde Roast Like?
* Milder * LIghter * Richer * Mellower * Subtler *
According to the news, Starbuck's new blonde roast is "milder in body and in acidity" than Starbucks' previous coffees, which tended to be darker roasts. The video introducing Starbucks new coffee adds the words "lighter bodied, rich, mellow and subtle."
According to the Starbucks website, they went through 80 recipes before they settled on the ones that will be included in the Blonde Roast. Those new coffees will be called Starbucks Veranda Blend, Starbucks Willow Blend, Decaf Starbucks Willow Blend and Starbucks VIA Ready Brew Veranda Blend.
