This is the second week in a row that I’ve actually taken something being handed out at Columbus Circle on my way into the subway. After a few months of living in the city I quickly realized that the majority of people standing on corners handing out material were giving out junk. Just walk half a block away from these individuals and you find a trash can full of their flyers.
All the same, I found myself taking todays product. Part of the appeal was the size, it was clearly more than a cheap advertisement. I mean it was red, shiny, and a bit thick…it was also pretty much placed right into my hand.
After returning from class this afternoon, I needed a pick me up and decided to give the instant coffee a go. I’m usually not a fan of instant coffee but I was excited to try the stuff out.
I opted for the vanilla flavor first and as soon as I opened the package I realized it wasn’t normal instant coffee, the smell was amazing. As I poured hot water over the instant mix, the smell intensified, something I usually only experience with brewed coffee. Regarding flavor, it wasn’t bad, I don’t think I would be able to drink it black (which is often how I like my coffee); but with a bit of agave syrup and milk and it was pretty darn good. Luckily I still have 5 more packets to try out 🙂
Enjoy your Friday,
