I've never been a big Starbucks coffee fan, for I always felt that it was much too strong, at least for my tastes. No matter how I would try to brew it at home, it just didn't taste good to me. Even in Starbucks locations I found the coffee too strong, so I was a little hesitant about testing out this new vanilla flavored coffee. I am pleased to report, however, that I am happy that I did.
This new edition of Starbucks coffee has a very subtle flavoring of vanilla, not enough to overpower the taste of the coffee, unlike the jarring tastes in other companies' flavored coffees.

Vanilla has a subtle flavor and an indulgent aroma that's simply made for coffee. To allow the vanilla to come through, we specially blended and lightly roasted Latin American beans.
