Liz Cochrane has made it to the final round of the Seattle's Best Coffee Red Cup Showdown. She won the California State Fair round in July, and in addition to receiving the first-place blue ribbon, she also won $500 and a trip for two to New York City.

But is her caramel apple concoction good enough to take home the top spot?

Cochrane will go head-to-head against finalists from the Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa state fairs, and one Facebook finalist, as they recreate their winning coffee recipes to vie for the $10,000 grand prize.

The grand prize-winning coffee drink will be selected based on the vote of the judging panel at the New York finale, as well as Facebook votes. Cochrane's fans can vote for her and her winning coffee drink, "Hot Caramel Apple Coffee," on the Seattle's Best Coffee Facebook page through today.

The lucky winner will also have his or her beverage featured in Seattle's Best Coffee retail locations.
