Our Seattle's Best Coffee Level System Results and another $100 Amazon gift card giveaway

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer.

We've had a chance to go through the Seattle's Best Coffee Level System.

In case you're not familiar with it, Seattle's Best Coffee makes finding and enjoying premium packaged coffee easy with a unique level system that helps you find your taste profile. The new Seattle's Best Coffee Level System features coffee blends numbered 1 through 5, rated from lightest to boldest instead of trying to wade through names of various roasts.

Here's our (Busy Dad's and my) results:

Level 1 – "mild, light crisp" - Light, smooth, a bit of an after-taste, but a good one. It might be good for a casual coffee drinker.

Level 2 – "lively easy drinking" - This one is a good "regular" coffee taste, almost sweet.

Level 3 – "balanced, smooth, full-flavored" - As expected, this level was a little stronger, which I prefer. A good "middle of the road" coffee.

Level 4 – "rich, elegant, complex" - This one was my favorite, I liked it best with the way I drink my coffee: half-and-half only. Very smooth, yet strong enough to have a distinct taste.

Level 5 – "bold, dark, intense" - This one was strong, but without the "burnt" taste some bolder coffees have. It's smooth, and for the serious coffee drinker.

I'm a Level 4. I thought I was going to be a Level 5 for sure, but I preferred this one, it tasted a little smoother to me. Busy Dad turned out to be a Level 3 which surprised me a little.
