Seattle's Best Coffee Christmas Drinks and 2014 Dream Journal

♫ It's the most wonderful time of the year ♫ 

Hello December!! The month of joy and happiness that brings out the kid in everyone. Yes, it's the season of giving (and receiving) once again. 

And speaking of giving, Seattle Best Coffee gives us more reason to enjoy the holidays with their Christmas Drinks line up.

This year's theme exhibits a playful and fun "Christmas in a toyshop" setting. A reminder that no matter how old we are, we are all kids at heart especially during the Christmas season. 

Seattle's Best Coffee presents their 4 holiday drinks available in hot or cold (Javakula).



Eggnog Frost- SBC’s white chocolate mocha perfectly combined with eggnog and cinnamon vanilla flavors topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with silver candy beads.


An elegant cup of white chocolate mocha with eggnog and cinnamon sprinkled with edible silver beads.I personally prefer the hot version of this popular Christmas drink that brings comfort and spice and everything nice. 

Gingerbest- SBC’s white chocolate mocha infused with gingerbread syrup, garnished with whipped cream, topped with Christmas tree candy sprinkles and gingerbread candy man.


My personal favorite. It may not be for everyone but cookie butter lovers will certainly like it. For this drink, I prefer the Javakula version. Cookie Butter Best! 

Roasted Hazelnut- SBC's classic mocha harmoniously mixed with roasted hazelnut and coffee syrups topped with a cloud of whipped cream, crushed hazelnuts.


After the white chocolate mocha-based drinks, SBC's classic mocha-based beverages came next. The Roasted Hazelnut has this strong and distinct hazelnut flavor. It was a bit strong for my liking but according to statistics, this is currently one of their best-selling flavors. 

Cookies & Mint- SBC's classic mocha with a tempting mix of Oreo cookies and mint syrup covered with whipped cream and crushed Oreo cookies. An SBC all-time favorite. 


Of course SBC's Christmas drinks won't be complete without the all-time favorite cookies and mint. The crushed Oreo cookies gave an added texture to the drink, but the mint flavor was too mild to notice. 

My personal rankings of Seattle's Best Coffee Christmas Drinks:
1. Gingerbest
2. Eggnog
3. Cookies & Mint
4. Roasted Hazelnut 

Aside from their Christmas Drinks, Seattle's Best Coffee also surprises us with their 2014 Dream Journal. It comes in 4 available colors- purple, brown, charcoal gray, and peach.
