ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania-based convenience store is offering a new line of specialty coffees at more than 500 stores.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1IfSDa6) starting Wednesday, Altoona-based Sheetz will offer a light breakfast blend, a medium classic roast and a dark French roast along with a Sumatra blend.

Each Sheetz has retrained baristas to use new grinders that produce “a smoother, more composed taste profile.”

The store will also introduce seventeen creamer and flavor options.

The National Coffee Association says 34 percent of Americans drink gourmet coffee every day. The number of people who drink espresso-based drinks every day has increased from five percentage points in 2014.



Officials said in a press release the new “premium” coffee will elevate their customers’ “sensory experience.”
