Tell me what Seattle's Best Coffee "Level" you are and win!

***This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for your participation!***



This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Seattle’s Best.



My day is not complete without a cup of coffee or two (or even three).

I love drinking coffee with my morning breakfast both when I am at home or when I am traveling for work. I love drinking it in my cold office in the morning or right after lunch (or both). And I love grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend to catch up after work or on the weekends. Sometimes on the weekends my husband will even make me and espresso treat in the fancy espresso maker we got for our wedding. He is the best.

I take my coffee black. Or sometimes black with a bit of non-fat milk. It took me years of coffee drinking to learn to like it without cream and sugar, but I actually prefer it mostly black now. You can call me crazy if you want.

Recently I had the chance to read about Seattle’s Best Coffee’s new “Level” system for packaged coffee.

The Level System allows you to easily find and choose a Seattle’s Best Coffee blend that fits your tastes and personality best – from a mild, light, crisp Level 1 to a bold, dark and intense Level 5. It really takes the "guess work" out of picking a coffee. Pretty cool, right?


I went to the the website to see what Level I thought I would be. Having not yet sampled any of the levels, I think I’m a Level Three.

The Level Three personality says that, “you’re ready for anything. Adept at problem solving, you might be found playing chess, building a tree house, or negotiating a business deal.” That sounds like me, particularly the problem solving and business deal part (which is what I do all day every day).

The Level Three flavor profile is “medium-bodied, medium acidity, nutty nuance, and a clean finish.” Sounds delish! I can't wait to try it with a dash on non-fat milk as I head out the door to the office.

Soon I am going to taste all five levels and let you know what I think. But in the meantime, BlogHer is giving away a $100 Amazon gift card to one lucky reader!

hands down, level 3

Barbara said...

I like my coffee black. I like a lot of coffee flavor, but I don't like the dark or french roasts. They taste like burnt rubber tires to me.

So I think my level would probably be a 3 or a 4.

ellie said...

I'm not a coffee drinker but my husband and oldest son are. They both like it black and strong. So they'd be levels 5.
Thanks for the giveaway!

I don't really like coffee, so if that was all I could have to drink, I'd choose Level One and add LOTS of milk and sugar.

I would be a level 3 or 4. I dont like to go to dark because the darker the roast the less caffeine and antioxidents.

I don't drink coffee, but several in the family do, and they range from taking it strong & black to doctoring it with a flavored creamer & sugar.

I would def go with a level 1 because I am not a big coffee drinker but when I do drink it I like it to taste more like the flavoring/sugar/creamer/whatever than the coffee! :D

Gold Is Not A Good Investment. I am still as pro gold, pro precious metals, and pro freedom as I ever was. It's just that I have realized that gold is not a good "investment". Every school naturally comes with its sets of tests. We strongly believe that one investors success is our success. It needs about $15,000 worth of work. The case of stock markets is same, you need to lead up to the choices. By spending some time & practice, it is possible to you to grasp the methods you might wish for to achieve triumph in a market. The company that holds your mortgage has filed legal documents with the county to begin proceedings to take your home away from you.
