It's coffee time again.
The Hard, The Creamy and the...
I'll let you make up your own joke here
Roots is trying a new "trade friendly" approach with shiny aluminum bottles printed with images of the animals from the countries where the beans come from. Interesting idea, but the result is kind of ugly.
America has just not embraced "coffee" as a flavor, like Japan has, settling for just vanilla, mint, strawberry, chocolate, etc. Here we have coffee-mint drops. The coffee flavor is very strong, reminiscent of the burnt stuff you get at cheap diners in the States, plus there's the peppermint flavor lurking in the background. Again, an interesting idea but the two flavors don't really work well together.
