FIF-Seattle's Best Coffee!! #Giveaway


With the schedule we kept (or rather didn't keep, since there was absolutely no schedule or routine in our days whatsoever) on our trip to Florida, late nights and early mornings were pretty much the norm. I think there were at least 7-10 days straight that I only got about 5 hours sleep each night. Needless to say, finding good coffee was a necessity. Most hotels have coffee in the room or down in the lobby, but many times, this coffee just doesn't taste the same as a gourmet cup from a nice cafe. That's why I was so excited about the chance to visit Seattle's Best Coffee, located on campus at the University of Central Florida! 

After a long trip, that took longer due to traffic (if you've ever been in Orlando, you know what I'm talking about) I was more than ready for some coffee! It was a short walk from the drop-off zone over to the Seattle's Best Cafe, and I wasted no time in checking out the menu. 



It didn't take long for me to spot exactly what I wanted to try-a Cookies and Cream Latte Frozen Coffee! I ordered C a Mocha Frozen Coffee, since that is her favorite at just about any coffee shop. Both employees were very friendly and helpful, and made the experience extremely pleasant. It wasn't just a place-your-order-here's-your-drink-now-leave kind of thing, but they chatted about the weather, the traffic, and made me feel welcome at Seattle's Best. 
Jason, the manager, also came over and welcomed me to Seattle's Best, and told me a little about their business. 




After the drinks were made, I had to rush out, since my ride was waiting (I'm not that important; it was just my sister, circling the campus parking lot so we didn't have to pay for parking). I couldn't wait to try my Cookies and Cream though, so please excuse the picture :)



This was without a doubt, the best frozen coffee drink I have ever tasted! You may not think Oreos and coffee would taste good together, but they do! It was absolutely delicious, and I didn't need any help to polish off a large all by myself. (Okay, I gave C one sip just so she could see what she was missing). 




Speaking of C, she really enjoyed her Mocha Frozen Coffee, and said it was very tasty as well. 

I would certainly go to Seattle's Best again, and will be keeping an eye out for any cafes on our road trips in the future. I learned they also have locations in many airports, so if you're flying anywhere in the near future and need a cup of coffee, or a frozen coffee treat, I suggest you try them out!
