The best coffee ever – Never once that I was disappointed with Seattle's Best Coffee. I live just a couple blocks from all stores in downtown. So, it's easy to walk down there to get it. But when I'm out of the area, it's so hard to find the store.
The taste is smooth, not too bitter, not to weak (like Starbucks which I never finish my cups whenever I have to get it). Anything I get from SBC is good. I always get latte but mocha tastes very good too. Not too sweet. They're the best.
Born from the infamous coffeehouse culture of Seattle, this to-go coffee chain draws the crowd with its highly aromatic brews and flavored coffee creations. – In Short
From its humble beginnings as a response to the coffee revolution of the 70's to a brand name acquired by Starbucks and recognized nationwide, Seattle's Best continues to serve high-quality coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. Intoxicating smells of bold blends waft through the simply decorated café, where patrons gather to sip on small tables and comfy armchairs. Flavor-infused brews like Hazelnut Cream, Almond Roca, and Crème Brulee draw passionate coffee aficionados to experience new blends with creative touches, while seasonal specialties, teas and an assortment of breakfast pastries and treats round out the menu.
SBC is Seattle's Best – Not only are the employees always smiling and helpful. The slow roasted small batch coffee is the Best! I had a Javanilla Milkshake (made with real ice cream) and it was the best ever. I Visit all of the 5 downtown Seattle cafes on a regular basis and I am never dissapointed! Their blended Java Kula coffee line is also very tasty way better than the Frappucino!
Better than Starbucks, not Torrefazione – They produce a nice espresso, strong and flavorful! Would select them over Starbucks any day.
A rose by any other name... – First it was Stewart Brothers Coffee. You can morph it, spin it, or grind it but the best is still the best. And Stewart Brothers had the audacity to rename it Seattle's Best. With huevos like that, one had better be able to back it up. No contest...SBC IS the Best. The down side is there are just not enough of the coffee shops in other city's. I stop for Starbucks if there is no SBC around and I really have to have a cup o' java.
Gross & disgusting – They should dubb this Seattle's Worst Coffee. The coffe is bland and weak and their interiors/ambiance is ugly and dated. They could use an entire re-branding of their image and coffee houses. It's no longer (if it ever was) a nice place to sit back and have a nice, calm, relaxing cup of coffee.
Is the REALLY Seattle coffee? – It may be a coffee for people who like their coffee on the lighter side (I like the Folger Crystals review!). But for REAL Seattle coffee, this is NOT it. However, I give them high marks for consistency of their product, it just isn't a robust product.
Seattle's Best for a Reason – The Stewart Brothers have got good coffee sense. Seattle's Best, no matter if I'm at Pike Place or elsewhere, always gives me a great cup of joe. Can't beat it.
No Atmosphere – Although the coffee may be decent, chains like Seattle's Best and Starbucks lack character, atmosphere and, of course, individuality. If I'm the middle of suburbia and there's no where else, it'll do. But if you're actually IN the city, why would you go here?
not your average joe – Without a doubt there is no worse coffee in all of Seattle. I'd rather use Folger's Crystals.
