Just in time for the holidays: Five lucky moms will win some delicious Sleighbell Blend coffee from momlogic's favorite coffee peeps, Seattle's Best.
We love the folks at Seattle's Best because they get how important coffee is to us moms. It's the bright spot in our day! Back in October, momlogic had the chance to attend the first-ever Seattle's Best Coffee Camp, and we were psyched to see that the company provides its employees with in-building daycare and free coffee all day. Love that! We were also amazed to find out that the company employs full-time "cuppers" to keep the flavors of their blends consistent. These women (they were all women when we visited, anyway) taste coffee all day, spitting it out into these cool spittoons, like wine tasters do. Who knew?
Jenny McCabe, mom and director of communications for Seattle's Best, confessed that she didn't really drink coffee until she started working for the company as a new mom. "Before that, I was a once-a-month cappuccino drinker," she said. "And I didn't drink coffee at all when I was pregnant. By the time I started working for Seattle's Best, I hadn't slept more than five hours in a row in 23 weeks. I was exhausted. Then, a week before I started my job, my husband got me a French press. The fog cleared! I make coffee every morning now." Exhaustion? Fog? Man, we can relate.
Seattle's Best Sleighbell Blend ground coffee uses beans from Asia and Latin America, including unusually large pacamara beans from El Salvador. The resulting coffee is both smooth and complex -- perfect for fireside sipping. The Seattle's Best people suggest that you drink Sleighbell Blend with desserts like shortbread cookies or pecan pie. We suggest that you drink it whenever the mood strikes. Like now, maybe?
