I have a little story to tell. Some of you might remember that I mentioned that I did an afternoon of volunteering with Food Lifeline back in July. Actually, I volunteered again at Food Lifeline in August, and I'm scheduled again in September. I mentioned the July volunteering briefly in this blog article here about the Seattle's Best Red Truck. I was with my good friend Abbey. She is wonderful. As I was hurrying to take photos of the Seattle's Best Red Truck, Abbey was standing around drinking the little sample beverages that Seattle's Best people were passing out. Honestly, I was so preoccupied with taking pictures, that I don't think I actually drank anything. The big Red Seattle's Best Truck baristas were sampling the "Mint Chocolate JavaKula."
And then later, I was out with Abbey and other friends again for our regular Friday lunch routine. We often drop by Collins for lunch on Fridays. From there, it's a very short walk to the Seattle's Best Coffee located on the corner of 2nd and Cherry in Seattle's Pioneer Square neighborhood. As we left Collins, Abbey turned to me (and the other friend with us) and said, "Can we go to Seattle's Best now? There is something I want to get." Of course, we said, "Sounds Good!"
Abbey ordered a Mint Chocolate Java Kula. I ordered the same thing. I figured that if Abbey was this enticed by it, I would be too.
Holy Moly. That is good. Holy Moly. I think I like it better than any Frappuccino that I've ever had. Mint whip cream pretty much will curl your toes. That is delicious. It's not too heavy, and just the right amount of chocolately-ness, and it's 100% delicious. Abbey explained to me that she discovered it when were visiting the Seattle's Best Red Truck, and she knew she had to have it again.
Get yourself to Seattle's Best!
On that day in August, when I was at Seattle's Best, I had tweeted a photo of my beverage. Here's the photo from the 2nd and Cherry Street Seattle's Best Coffee location:
I decided that I had to try this beverage yet again to see if it really was so very very very very yummy. I dropped by the Seattle's Best Coffee location in Post Alley (inside Pike Place Market) and YES, it was just as good again.
Here it is one more time, and a couple of photos from the Post Alley Seattle's Best Coffee:
By the way, it seems like a JavaKula is a little cheaper than a Frappuccino too, which is a very nice added bonus. I may go get one again today! That's my little Mint Chocolate JavaKula story. Thank you for reading it! And if you do visit Seattle, be sure to visit the pretty Seattle's Best in Post Alley. When I started this blog about 9 months ago, the very first photo uploaded with the Seattle's Best Coffee store at Post Alley, closed in the winter with snow around it. It's still a beautiful picture to see!
