I hope you do know that coffee, within a few minutes of brewing, develops bitter notes totally unsuitable for the more sophisticated palate.

Out of the 1000 cups of coffee I brewed last year, only 30 cups came out unusually bitter, but that was from 1 particular batch of beans. I still drank it though.

Appreciate the sarcasm.

Have 4 containers left. The last one seems to remind me of the YooHoo drinks with a artificial vanilla.

No the classical French technique is to throw the drink in someone else's face with as much contempt as one can muster.

So far I have only tried the vanilla flavor and I think it is okay, not great not terrible. I'm pretty sensitive to caffeine so I can't have too much, but I like to have a little to help me wake up sometimes so having this in the fridge is pretty convenient. It's kinda pricey but the cost is similar to one soy vanilla latte from a coffee shop and it lasts me for over a week. I do think it's too thick though. And I agree single servings would be a great idea.

Well then...

Anyway, I saw this in the store and I can't wait to try it! It's getting some pretty negative reviews here but I don't know. I think I'd still like to try it once.

I'm afraid our unsophisticated palates probably couldn't tell the difference :( :(

So, I don't think you get it. NOT THE SERVER'S FAULT is a powerful incantation that summons Springs1 from the very bowels of the internet to share their hard earned wisdom about the restaurant industry. No moderator, no matter how facsist, can stop this force.

So I'm going to be that rare person who says that they actually like this. I bought the mocha one and it is SO good.

I like it! I think it tastes exactly how it should, and it's still way cheaper than Starbucks.
