Seattle’s Best Coffee

Seattle has not always been at the center of the coffee universe. In fact, the city was known as one of those places where bad coffee was served. But the scenario changed when a group of passionate coffee lovers started a revolution somewhere in the 1970s.

Seattle’s Best’s founders were some of the first coffee pioneers. The company first began as a combination of ice cream and coffee shop knowns as the Wet Whiskers in the city in 1969. Jim Stewart, one of the founders purchased green coffee beans from local roasters to be sold at Wet Whiskers. By the end of the next year, Jim sold Wet Whiskers and opened another coffee and ice cream store in Seattle’s Waterfront. This outlet was named the Stewart Brothers Wet Whiskers as Jim’s brother, Dave, also joined the business.

Soon, the brothers changed the name to Stewart Brothers Coffee and began to expand the business. The company then renamed itself to Seattle’s Best Coffee in 1991. AFC Enterprises acquired Seattle Coffee Holdings and initiated the franchising of the brand in 1998. Today, the coffee revolution has spread across America and Seattle’s Best company is one of them that offers smooth taste and bold flavors.

Why Seattle’s Best Coffee?

Seattle’s Best is a lot cheaper than Starbucks. The coffee also tastes nice and is becoming very popular among the crowd. The company also offers some of the best packages and blends – k-cup coffee, whole, ground bean. What makes this company so unique is that the level system makes it very easy to choose the correct coffee. They have also released brand-new packages as well.

Roasting process

The company makes use of Arabica beans, which are sourced from Latin America. Seattle’s Best works very closely with the farmers to make sure that the consistency of the beans remains the same. This means that you will get the best taste and flavor each and every time.

The master blenders create the most unique blends with approachable and easy taste. You can be sure to get the same smooth coffee in each batch, because of their expertise and experience. The company insists on rigorous quality checks before finally shipping it. The quality and consistency are also checked when the beans arrive for the roasting approval.

The master roasters micro-roast and taste-test to check if the beans match up to the set standards and criteria. Once everything checks out fine, the beans are finally shipped for consumption. The coffee beans that have been approved go through a very special roasting process that results in a very smooth flavor. Experts work very carefully to perfect each and every batch.

Here are some Seattle’s Best levels:

Seattle’s Best breakfast blend

This blend is very bright and crisp, coupled with some citrus notes. With a light body and mild flavor, this level is perfect if you are looking for a nice morning cup of joe. The coffee is a bit crisp and acidic and will wake you up perfectly. This blend is a good choice if you like citric and light coffee that is not on the bitter or strong side.

Seattle’s Best House blend

This level is balanced and smooth. The House blend has subtle flavor notes and a mild taste. Of course, it has a lesser acidic than the breakfast blend and is not bitter at all. It is an easy choice to drink if you like to simply sip your cup of coffee all day long. It is a very mild and nice blend and has a slightly better taste.

Seattle’s Best Level 3 (also known as Portside blend)

This is a very smooth and nice medium roast that is well-balanced. It is almost similar to the House Blend but has a bit more flavor, which is well-balanced as well.

Seattle’s Best Level 4 (also known as 6th Avenue Bistro)

For people who love dark roasts, this is the level you should go for. This level is very strong, yet smooth and balanced right. It has delicious and toasty notes, a hint of chocolate and brown sugar. The flavors are also toasty and deep, but not too overroasted or bitter. It is also one of the company’s best selling blends. You also have the option of going for the organic variant as well.

This is Seattle’s Best’s strongest blend. Intense and rich, this coffee has a bold, good and complex taste. There is no acidity whatsoever and nutty and dark chocolate notes. If you are a fan of dark roast coffee, then this is the blend you are looking for. The Post Alley blend is also perfect if you want to have milky drinks and iced coffee.

Seattle’s Best K-cups
