Notice--possible fair use problem.Edit

The text reproduced below includes a copyright notice. This most likely violates the stipulation that Wikia content is GFDL or at least GFDL-compatible, which the following information may not be. In such an event, of course, the present page should be summarily deleted by whoever encounters it (the present reader, for example). It all depends on one's understanding of what is "fair use." Please note the following:

  • Apparently one symbol of Seattle's Best Coffee, LLC,

in which it takes some considerable pride, is a large billboard emblazoned with the words (in lights) "PUBLIC MARKET."

  • Apparently the specific product in question is part of (or made in concert with)

an effort to promote equality under asymmetric trading conditions. This would appear to be consistent with the mission of the UPC wikia.

 present wikia of the present page, is admittedly an attempt to
 incorporate the admittedly copyright/all rights reserved (and not
 reversed) product package content into a hypothetical database with
 pseudo-XML mockup.  This amounts to a retrieval system, mechanical
 or electronic, from which copyright documents are protected by
 default.  On the other hand, the media wiki software used here
 apparently does not incorporate non-HTML mockup into its HTML pages
 (to be seen under "view source" type operations, if any, by humyn
 visitors).  For this reason, the mockup is less "machine readable"
 (i.e. XML-client-ready) and more transparent (plainly visible to the
 casual observer) than it otherwise would be.
  • It is assumed that any closed loop information systems being maintained

in SBC's purchasing department (or the equivalent) are maintained in a way consistent with how SBC would approve of its own product offerings being tagged or virtually modeled in the machine-readable public domain.

At SBC, even our roasting plant has been certified organic. This allows us to guarantee our coffee's integrity from field to cup.

The perfect cup of coffeeEdit


Seattle's Best Coffee™ is roasted so that one rounded tablespoon of ground coffee per 8 fl oz (236 mL) of cold, clean water makes a very good cup. To achieve the perfect cup for you, add more or less coffee until it suits your taste.


The longer coffee is exposed to air, heat, moisture and light, the more flavor it loses. To retain the best coffee flavors, always squeeze air from bag and close securely.
