Seattle’s Best Celebrates the Hippie Holidays!

Seattle’s Hippie Beetle!
Peace, Love and Merry Christmas!Hippie Please
I was lucky enough to get invited to Seattle’s Best Coffee‘s launch of their Christmas drinks and their Dream Planner last October 18. 
Christmas drinks in October? Sounds weird and too early, but what the heck! :))

The big red and yellow canopy tent marks the hippie place to be! Vibrant mats on the ground and folding chairs, flowing coffee and finger foods! It totally felt like a hippie festival!
Got there a little late (am sorry!) hence I missed all the hippie goodies and the silkscreened shirts that they were giving away. What a bummer. I’ll make sure I’ll be early next time!
I arrived to this very lovely graffiti art! How I wish I can do the same.

There were bubble blowers and a lot of fun stuff and activities at the event’s site!

ONE of the best things about
Seattle’s Best Coffee’s holidays is the thrill of getting the SBC Dream
Journal, a feature-laden organizer for the next year.
Creatively conceptualized, it is
packed with features to gratify the meticulous planner. In five attractive
colors to suit everyone’s tastes – red, blue, yellow, purple and brown – the
SBC Dream Journal is for the creative and logical thinkers alike. And because
we take our journals to heart, SBC adds that personal touch to the SBC Dream
Journal by providing a free engraving service for the guests to customize their
journals and make it truly theirs.
This is what sets it apart from any other journal.
With monthly calendars and
generous writing pages, every journal comes with interactive monthly pages and
visuals. It comes with free seven drinks, two pastries, a panini, and 24 hours
free wifi. As with last year, part of the proceeds will be donated to World
Vision to benefit its children’s educational program.
Seattle’s Best guests need only
collect 18 stickers on their SBC Dream Card during the promotional period to
get this beautiful planner for free.  One
sticker will be given for every SBC drink bought (excluding bottled drinks).
Guests need to purchase 10 regular SBC drinks and eight (8) holiday drinks to
qualify for the journal. The SBC Dream Card will be available from October 23,
2012 to January 15, 2013 at all Seattle’s Best branches. 

So there, start collecting your stickers to get your own Dream Planner!! And you won’t only get a new, pretty journal but you will also be able to contribute to World Vision and their advocacy. That’s a good way to start your 2013!

PS. I have a red dream journal, anyone wanna trade for the yellow? 😉

Moving on!

The program started and was hosted by the only, Marc Nelson. (Paging KC of spreadsomeawesome.com, twitter incident! Haha!!)

Also that night, SBC introduced their line of Christmas drinks!

Their holiday drinks include: Cookies and Mint, Coffee Hazelnut, Caramel Apple and Espresso Jelly.

hands-down comfort drink of the season, Cookies
and Mint
, returns to delight holiday revelers once more. A minty, sweet and
refreshing treat for this season of glad tidings, Cookies and Mint is a deeply
satisfying mix of dark chocolate, mint, and espresso. Topped with Oreo cookies,
this smooth espresso is the best conclusion to one’s day at work or at play.

favorite from last year, Coffee Hazelnut
is a special coffee blend with a kick, bringing a symphony of flavors in a
cup of java. The woodsy flavor of hazelnut, laced with white chocolate sauce
and coconut, gives espresso a richer, nutty taste, perfect for stimulating the

Caramel Apple is
Seattle’s Best’s new, fruity offering for the season, the caffeine equivalent
of one of the season’s traditional delights. Espresso is combined with apple
syrup and white chocolate sauce, then garnished with caramel sauce, cinnamon
powder and whipped cream.  It’s a
seasonal indulgence worth savoring repeatedly throughout the holidays.

Best also has created a special blend this season for adventurous types. Espresso Jelly is the bold and strong
coffee concoction to liven the holidays. A perky combination of coffee jelly
and espresso, topped with whipped cream and coffee jelly. A must-try for a
season of heightened expectations and promises!

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to try one because I get palpitations from coffee. 🙁 But I’m really looking forward to try Caramel Apple, maybe next time!

Sam Concepcion was also there at the event. I believe he’s an ambassador for World Vision. 🙂

The kids from World Vision were also there at the event to join the fun.

A toast to SBC and World Vision!

Another graffiti wall art! This reminds me so much of Lady Gaga!

Thank you SBC for inviting me to be part of this event! I had a great time! 🙂 And I’m really looking forward to try this season’s Caramel Apple drink! 😉
