Seattle’s Best Coffee Introduces New Specialty Iced Drinks To Help Beat The Summer Heat
Cookie Dough JavaKula® blended beverage and Peach CremeKula® blended beverage available at cafes nationwide
SEATTLE, June 02, 2010 – As the mercury begins to rise, Seattle’s Best Coffee is the place to cool down this summer with the arrival of new blended seasonal beverages and the return of a favorite packaged coffee blend at its cafes nationwide. Inspired by the belief that everyone deserves a great cup of coffee, Seattle’s Best Coffee is focusing on new beverages that highlight the company’s commitment to high quality, freshly brewed coffee.
The star of summer this year at Seattle’s Best Coffee is the Cookie Dough JavaKula® blended beverage. This new premium blended beverage is made with smooth, cold brewed coffee and a combination of cookie dough syrup and white chocolate sauce and topped with a signature chocolate baton, whipped cream and a sprinkle of chocolate chip cookie crumbles.
The key ingredient in the Cookie Dough JavaKula is the Seattle’s Best Coffee cold brewed coffee concentrate, a concentrated coffee extract produced by using a special cold brewing process. The cold brewing process extracts the delicious flavors of coffee and leaves behind undesirable acids and oils, resulting in a bold, slightly sweet, smooth-tasting coffee with the added benefit of more than 50 percent less acidity than conventional brewing methods. Cold brewed coffee is used as the base for the Seattle’s Best Coffee JavaKula blended beverages, coffee milkshakes and Hand Shaken ColdBrewed Originals.
Other new summer seasonal offerings at Seattle’s Best Coffee include:
* Peach CremeKula® blended beverage – a chilly beverage featuring a creamy blend of sun-ripened peaches blended with ice and topped with whipped cream. Seattle’s Best Coffee is also bringing back a favorite beverage from last summer – the Peach FruitKula® Blended Beverage, a refreshing non-coffee blended beverage.
* A favorite summer coffee since 1998, Beach House Blend® packaged coffee returns in a one-pound whole bean package. Beach House Blend, which can be brewed hot or served over ice, offers a refreshingly mild citrus flavor, delicate aroma and smooth finish.
Complementing the cool new summer offerings, Seattle’s Best Coffee is also introducing new OvenSong® Cupcakes in three fun flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla Bean and Raspberry Sparkle.
