Hazelnut or hazelyuck?
I was a barista for 10+ years. Sadly to say there are some things I should really know and some things that I really don’t. To maybe give you an idea of why I KNOW I am NOT a barista anymore read here:
people are mad picky and anal about their coffee;
People get rather angry if something is missing from their drink rituals especially coffee;
People are extremely particular about said drink;
Coffee is not healthy when you start to add more to it.
Women between 16-53yrs old tend to say they are “being bad” when getting a bla bla latte with bla bla bla.
I can not and will not smile if you tell me to, or if you ask why I am not.
I did not need to look at the clock anymore because I could tell by when certain customers came in.
So there. I could make lists of lists and lists of lists of lists of lists.
Anyway, I drink my coffee black (like my x-barista soul?). However, sometimes, I like a little flavor. When I saw this Hazelnut product, I thought let’s give it a go.
I am a total fan of the squeeze flavors like Mio, sugar water drops… Maybe this would be pretty good since I have control of how much goes in. Slowly I put more and more in tasting the coffee. And uh… I can say that I don’t like this. No thanks! The drink tasted like fake hazelnut with an even bigger fragrance of hazelnut that was surprisingly unpleasant after a while. This product is a no. I would recommend sticking with your local coffee shop’s hazelnut or buy Torani or coffee mate.

Would I buy this again? No
