Ten Cups of Coffee

A little while ago, someone on Twitter recommended "Beanies" to me. Beanies are instant coffee sachet sticks, like those single-server Cadbury Options sticks. Rip off the top, pour into a mug, add hot water and milk.. job done.
Lovely Bru..

The packs available tend to mix ten "current" random flavours, and the pack I got from Amazon promises 20 sticks.. 2 each of 10 flavours.

Indeed!!! Let's go!!

Day One : Vanilla
Although I’ve never tasted PlayDoh, I have an odd idea of what it might taste like, and the vanilla coffee tastes an awful lot like what my head considers to be the taste of PlayDoh.
I’m not very fond of this one.

Day Two : Cinnamon and Hazelnut
Terrifying flashbacks to the bloody Cinnamon Teas were thankfully unwarranted.
A lovely taste, with the hazelnut leaving behind a nice aftertaste.

Day Three : Coconut Delight
Tastes exactly like your brew after dunking several hundred "Nice" biscuits into it.
This one's quite nice going down, but leaves a rather tangy sort of aftertaste.

Thought 1
These are a LOT stronger "flavours" than when I used to add coffee syrups to my brews. Must be because the beans are ground with the flavour, or something.

Thought 2
These are a lot nicer than those bloody teas I had over Xmas!!

Jar of normal coffee for mornings.

Jar of decaffeinated for the rest of the day.

Amaretto Almond is pretty damn nice, that's the only beanies one I've tried mind

Web / Game Dev, occasionally finishes off coding games also!

Day Four : Mint Chocolate

I was really looking forward to this one, and it smells gorgeous!
... tastes awful, though. That kinda cheap cardboard taste that you get from crappy hot chocolate drinks.

Day Five : Double Chocolate

Not as bad as yesterday's Mint Chocolate, but still has the strange taste of drinking chocolate that your Nan's had stored in the cupboard for the past decade!
Perhaps it's my lack of interest in chocolate, lately, that makes it taste "wrong", but it definitely isn't going down well.

Roll on tomorrow!!

Coffee! - Sometime I get that image in my mind of Homer simpson druling. I got a couple of sachets myself that were on sale. Only one box tasted nice. The amaretto. (edit: I mean Wiener Melange)

Years ago before the cheaper instant machines I liked italian coffee. Can not think of the name. It did taste very nice.

Day Six : GingerBread

...doesn’t taste like GingerBread.
It's nice.. don’t get wrong. But it's not GingerBread.
I’m not sure what it is.
..but it's not GingerBread..

Day Seven : Creamy Caramel

Quite a nice, smooth brew, today. The caramel works nicely, with only a slight aftertaste.
Starting to think there's a little *too* much flavouring in these!!

Day Eight : Amaretto Almond

This one's nice and smooth like the Caramel. A nice subtle taste, too. Not as overpowering as some of the others.
A lovely brew!

Day Nine : Cookie Dough

I’m not sure what I was expecting, but this one tastes like a mix between the Vanilla one, and an insane amount of cinnamon.
Nasty aftertaste.
Not a fan.

Day Ten : Chocolate Orange

As bad as the other chocolate ones. It has that "not really chocolate at all" taste, and the nasty aftertaste, too.

So, all in all, a bad batch of coffee.
Some were nice, but they certainly weren’t good enough to warrant another batch.

Bad enough that I now have 10 duplicate sachets to work through.
