I tried, I really did, but I still found it just bitter, without any other flavor. But I love the idea of coffee so appealing, that I don’t think I’ll ever stop trying. I would love to learn to drink it black, it has so many benefits. I’m also caffeine-insensitive, so it doesn’t perk me up at all. Next time I brew it, through the cold method, I’m going to use vanilla/hazelnut flavored beans that I will grind myself. In the store. Grind myself in the store, I mean. I think the only way for me to get to my dream of liking coffee is through flavors I love. ☕️ (There is an Easter Island giant head & water polo emoji, not to mention field hockey & curling, of course, but no cold coffee or even a take-out coffee cup. I don’t know to whom I can send a complaint!)
