A Failed Experiment

Austin Dispatches No. 229 Jan. 22, 2021

A conversation with a co-worker inspired me to add vanilla extract to mask coffee's bitterness. The prices in the supermarket spice aisle almost quashed the experiment before it started. I later learned that price has risen noticeably in recent years. I found the blend itself unsatisfactory. The coffee flavor overwhelmed the vanilla, in contrast to teas and colas. Therefore, I'll continue to consume coffee with cream and sugar.
