Seattle's Best Coffee
|Roaster Location:||Seattle, Washington|
|Coffee Origin:||Not disclosed|
|Review Date:||February 2004|
Straightforward, simple but satisfying dark-roast: cleanly roasty, pleasantly smoky but without burned or excessive bitterness. In cup and finish the roastiness takes on a toasty, campfire chocolate character.
Seattle's Best Coffee is a large, pioneering specialty roaster-retailer chain established in 1970 and now owned by Starbucks Coffee. Henry's Blend, apparently named after a cat in earlier, less formal days, is one of SBC's best-known blends. Visit
Who Should Drink It
