  • Curiosity killed the CoffeeSnob...(almost)

    I was walking past the coffee aisle in the supermarket yesterday and spotted this:




    I knew I shouldnt have, but Im a sucker for a gadget/novelty  : so I cracked it open and tried it this morning.

    So, how did it taste?

    I was amazed at the initial burst of aromatics - blueberries, with a subtle caramel undertone.  It also had a long aftertaste, which developed into cinnamon.

    Actually no.... it tasted like sh!t!

    I knew in advance it was going to be bad... but not this bad.  This was sooo offensive, I suspect Satan himself urinated in this cup and the manufacturers then tried to mask the flavour with a dozen teaspoons of sugar as an afterthought.

    Luckily, I had some first aid at hand that I administered immediately (PNG Peaberry) - phew!  

    "Fine Coffee" indeed.

    Love the descriptions coffeequaffer...especially the transition from fantasy to reality!

    Im sure that with enough technology and chemicals the day will come when most wont tell the difference. Except it wont be coffee.

    At least you were prepared for the assault on the senses.

            Youll be seeing more and more products that come in a self-heating container. Right behind them are self-cooling containers. The self-heating ones have been slowly infiltrating the grocery shelves here for some time now. Ive not yet seen any of the self-cooling ones but supposedly theyll be here soon if they arent already.

                    TG, just for you I fetched the can out of the rubbish bin (hence causing this can to cause a second dry-wretch today )

                    In order of most to least, ingredients are:
                    "Satans urine, Coffee (water, coffee), milk solids non fat, milk, sugar, pectin, emulsifier (339), salt and monoglycerides."






                    Did you spot the deliberate mistake?

                          Is this the coffeesnobs equiv of extreme adventure? Fire walking, bungee jumping, BASE jumping, but without the exhileration?

                          Thanks for trying it out and the detailed report.

                          BTW satan may be offended by your comparison:-)

                              Hi All,

                              Did a spot of grocery shopping last night, and came across this can of sludge. The shop also had a "French Vanilla Latte" flavour on sale to tempt the tastebuds............
