I have tried coffee, but I find I hate coffee. It's an obvious sign when you are using 80 percent French Vanilla creamer and 20 percent coffee.

It's not that bad. I really wanted yellow to begin with on my first order, but they were backordered and I was impatient. So I guess karma is getting at me. At least I now have a designated front...
