Espresso beans look and smell deceivingly delicious. When you eat them though, they are actually disgusting. I am baffled by customers at Starbucks who order decaf americanos – espresso and hot water. There is no caffeine in this drink, therefore the customer orders it solely because they enjoy the taste of watered-down espresso. I thought tasting a bean today might help me better relate to these weirdo customers, but unfortunately I am just more confused by them than ever.
