One of the summer special coffee drinks here is "Coffee Cola". Essentially, this is an iced Americano with sparkling water and a bit of sweetener. For my first time here last week, I gave that a try.
Big mistake. I hated this beverage as much as its possible to hate a cup of coffee. The sparkling water and icy temperature amplified every bitter and sour note. I had asked the barista to go easy on the sweetener, and without it, this tasted pretty vile. I added a substantial amount of half-and-half and honey, and even that couldn't beat down the bitterness enough to make me like this concoction.
