Easy Breezy: Coffee of the Day, Seattle's Best Blend




On a warm, late spring morning, full schedules beckoned---and I, like many, many others woke up to a pot of coffee.

The coffee of the day was Seattle's Best Blend. According to the packaging, this blend is "uncommonly smooth." I enjoyed the first cup, but had to drink it quickly and head off to an event in my first grader's class.

Afterwards, my friend, Lindsey, Founder of SEO-ME, and I came back vowing to uncover the "uncommon smoothness" of Seattle's Best Blend. My second cup was rich and had perfect depth--but admittedly it needed a little kick.

Lindsey's take: "The flavor's definitely bright, but I would not say it's uncommonly smooth. It's definitely coffee, but I feel like there needs to be something happening, like nutmeg or cinnamon. The good part though is I don't feel like I have coffee breath.

That being said, the day was beautiful and the morning was full of laughter. We were light and breezy--despite the fact that we both had a full day of writing ahead of us. As Lindsey said, "Coffee is good to get you through the day, but it's really about the connection to others." Well said, Lindsey.

And next up to try from the Seattle's Best selection : Beach House Blend. If it's good, I'll drink it at the beach and the pool. It's going to be a great summer!

Nicole, you do look great drinking that coffee! I am wondering what you think of Starbuck's individual packets of instant coffee. I found it surprisingly good.
