Maybe I haven’t been paying close enough attention at my local stores, because I don’t remember spotting this summery Mélange d’été at any Starbucks stores near my house – and certainly not with french packaging. I snapped this picture on a recent trip to Montreal, where it seemed to be a popular choice for people looking for a lighter roast. The blend is made with the Blonde roasts, so although I didn’t get to taste it (they were brewing dark roasts at the time), I would put my money on this tasting a lot like Veranda and being a good choice for those who prefer going blonde. I really liked this packaging design – I wish they had had a summery mug in matching colors, as I definitely would have picked up one even without getting the coffee.
