This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Seattle’s Best.
I love trying new kinds of coffees. I enjoy how some coffees are more bold, or nutty, or rich but there are so many names for coffee it’s hard to know what is what. That’s why Seattle’s Best Coffee started their Coffee Levels – Level 1 is the lightest and mildest coffee and Level 5 is the boldest and darkest coffee.
I recently had a chance to try all five of Seattle’s Best Coffee Levels (no, not all on the same day. That would be a lot of coffee, even for me!).
I started with Level 4 – rich, elegant, and complex. It was very rich, almost like dark chocolate. I like it a lot but one cup was enough because it was so so rich.
Then I had Level 1 – mild, light, crisp. I actually enjoyed this milder blend much more than I thought I would. It was easy to drink and had a slightly sweet aroma.
But I really hit my sweet spot when I tried Level 3 – balanced, smooth, full flavored. It was funny that I liked this one best because that is what I had predicted I would like best. It was very smooth but yet full for flavor.
A close second to Level 3 was Level 2 – Bright, lively, easy drinking. Level 2 reminded me a lot of Level 3. I would definitely buy these two levels again in a heartbeat to be my daily drinkers.
I finished up with Level 5 – Bold, dark, intense. I liked this one too but it was bit too dark for me.
Overall, I liked all of the coffees a lot and think the level system is really cool. I am a little surprised I liked the more medium blends better, because I think of myself as a “strong coffee drinker” but I guess I like my coffee somewhere in the middle so I can drink it black and drink a lot of it!
