japan and japanese vending machine drinks29 Sep 2010 08:50 pm

Technically this is not a vending machine drink. Tetrapack cups like this are normally only seen in convenience stores, but whatever.

This coffee is from the Seattle (American?) chain Tully`s. There are a few brands that use popular American coffee chains to sell their liquid caffeine. I am not sure if they are legitimate partnerships or not, but the coffees do taste a bit better as well as cost a bit more. They are kind of the premium items in the cooler of the convenience store.

The coffee was rich but a bit bitter for my tastes. However, it was not thin and tasteless like most of Japanese coffees. It was a latte, so there was a bit of milk in it, but I like a thicker taste, so I added some cream and sugar and it was pretty decent, actually.
