Cincinnati woman's finalist in coffee creation contest

Karen Haldeman of Cincinnati, Ohio and her coffee drink idea, "Orange Blossom Morning," are on their way to NYC to compete in the finals of the Seattle's Best Coffee "Red Cup Showdown" to find the most imaginative new coffee drink.

Karen snagged her finalist position by winning top prize at the Ohio State Fair in Columbus earlier this summer.

Food Network's 'Sandwich King' Jeff Mauro and Seattle's Best Coffee have found six new coffee drinks that will compete in the finals on Thursday August 23rd.

Haldeman will compete in a live coffee-making battle against finalists from the California, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa state fairs as well as one Facebook finalist for the $10,000 grand prize and the chance to have their drink featured at Seattle's Best Coffee locations nationwide.

On Friday, Aug. 24, you can visit Facebook to get Haldeman's "Orange Blossom Morning" coffee recipe to make at home.
