Coffee Review: Seattle's Best Coffee - Iced Latte

This time around it's a road trip inspired coffee review! Was wandering the Shell gas station on Elk Grove Blvd. (near Emerald Vista Dr.) looking for coffee to take with me on a road trip from Sacramento to San Francisco when I spotted this little guy hanging out in the small coffee section of the fridges. A 9.5 FL OZ (281mL) can of Seattle's Best Coffee - Iced Latte for only $0.99! Maybe it was my excitement of discovering such a thing or perhaps delirium from being tired but something in the back of my brain at the time started playing Celestial music as I stared at the display. I wasn't about to pass up the opportunity to try it so of course I had to pick it up. Cracking open the can and taking a drink, I find that if you're not the kind of person who likes the strong flavor of coffee and only want a taste of it then this is for you. Light in coffee flavor, creamy with a bit of sweetness, this is definitely something I would pick up again in the future when given the chance. And really, 99 cents! Never thought that I would find something like this at a gas station.

As a side note (since a friend on Facebook voiced her disgust towards iced coffees), if you aren't a person who likes cold coffee then this might not be for you. Personally I happen to like iced coffees so totally don't mind it.


  1. That looks like some tasty coffee, although Im not sure how I would heat that up without an extra coffee mug.

  2. It's more marketed towards people who enjoy their coffee cold. Of course you could probably warm it up but, like you pointed out, more then likely you would have to do so at your home or at work where you might have a mug available to heat it.
