Kirkland is a Costco brand, just like Great Value is with Walmart. Most Kirkland branded items actually tend to be a special partnership with a big brand. In this case, it’s with Starbucks.
This blend tastes very similarly to the Starbucks Organic Winter Blend I reviewed last year. The advantage of course is that this Kirkland blend is cheaper, yet is the same quality. The coffee comes as whole beans, so be sure you have a grinder handy. If you don’t, just remember that Costco has coffee grinders handy in their stores.
