Excavations of Claymore: Granny's Turbo-Charged (Butterscotch) Latté

OK, I confess: I didn't exactly try Granny's Turbo-Charged Butterscotch Latté last night. Reason being that when I asked for it, Kenya, the bardude of the night, was like "No no no! Get a better turbo-charged latté. That much butterscotch is bad for your soul."

I listened to the wise words of the bardude and ordered English toffee, French vanilla and Irish creme in my three-shot bucket of epic. Then I realized that it wouldn't have mattered what flavors I chose; a drink with that much espresso in it wasn't tasting like anything but espresso. So this week's review is short and sweet (or bitter, depending on how literal you're feeling as you read it ^_^).

I do not recommend the turbo-charged latté if you want a yummy cup of coffee. It's not horrendous, but even in a large cup it's like 50-proof espresso, which inevitably spoils the flavor.

However, I highly highly highly recommend the turbo-charged latté if you wish to stay awake for days on end.

I drank mine at 1:30 this morning and was still fully functional and coherent by 7AM. Normally my psyche dissolves into the realm of absurdity around 3 in the morning (if it doesn't succumb to sleep first), and normally, even without coffee, I then become very silly. I may have laughed a little too hard at one too many "that's what she said" jokes last night, but I wouldn't say I was bouncing off the walls.

I actually fell asleep watching District 9 with the Bathrobe Guy, who had his coffee cherry unpleasantly popped last night (yay the Bathrobe Guy! Uh, I mean, sorry about the peer pressure...). I went to bed just after 7 and fell asleep without any trouble.

But the tale does not end there. I awoke three hours later feeling refreshed and ready to face the day. I leapt out of bed and went about my morning routine with, frankly, far more energy than I normally do, which led me to believe that all that caffeine was still ricocheting about in my brain.

That's right: I got a coffee hangover. What now.

So.. this is about a week late. But it would've been less unpleasant if I'd just waited a bit more for the coffee to cool down. I think the singing of my tastebuds gave me a rather unpleasant disposition, or at least as pertains to coffee. But I've also heard that cold coffee is ridiculously foul, so I suppose I erred on the better side.

Well now, that depends. If the coffee WAS hot and GOT cold, then yeah..... just throw it away. I don't care if it was $5. Throw it away. But I did have my iced coffee cherry popped last week and that was pretty good. Kind of like a milkshake but with this weird bitter thing going on. I could get into that =P
