Now today's sample of taster's choice coffee was an absolute gift. (See photo, above.) Six little packages of instant coffee in different flavors, including a decaf.
Well, we've been having a rough kind of day at Casa De Angels, and a little cup of coffee sounded, well, truly fabulous. And here's the kicker... it WAS truly fabulous! What a happy thing! In a world where instant coffee has the bitter metallic quality of a mouth full of seaweed, this was an absolute delight. I was shocked.
Compared with the Starbucks VIA I received a sample of last month (one single serving envelope), it was absolute heaven. The VIA has that pretentious bitterness that I've come to expect from Starbucks products.
Evidently price doesn't account for quality. Or taste.
