Costco carries several Starbucks staples in bulk, including the brand's whole bean French Roast as well as Pike Place ground coffee. But it's rare to find a limited edition blend at the popular retailer, which is why this news is big: for a limited time, Costco is selling big boxes of Starbucks holiday coffee blend.
Instagram account @thecostcoconnoisseur spotted that Costco rolled out a large box of the festive coffee as early as a week ago. OK, Costco, we understand the holidays are around the corner but can we at least get through Halloween first before we start cheering Deck the Halls?

The coffee doesn't come ground or even as whole beans. Instead, Costco is selling Starbucks holiday blend in the form of Nespresso pods and Keurig K-cups. Oh, and there's a reason you probably haven't seen the product in stores. While it's only available in select stores, it's mostly in stock online.
If you have a Nespresso machine you're in luck because Costco is currently selling a pack of 120 pods for $79.99 online. With this option, you can either brew 0.85 ounces for an espresso, 1.35 ounces for a ristretto, or 3.7 ounces for a lungo coffee. For those who have a Keurig at home, Costco is selling a 72-pack of K-cups for just $32.99.
As far as what the coffee tastes like, this blend is made from Latin American coffee beans with sweet notes of maple as well as Indonesian beans that add a hint of herbal spice to the mix. (Related: 20 Foods More Energizing Than a Cup of Coffee)
So, who's ready to ring in the holidays with this festive cup of Joe? Might as well stock up now so you don't have to worry about buying the warming blend when the weather outside is frightful.
