I love Iced Coffee.
It isn’t because I dislike hot coffee. I am usually just too thirsty to drink coffee hot.
I love Iced Coffee.
It is a joke that those of us from New England have Dunkin Iced coffee running through our veins.
I recently had a Dunkin Iced coffee and there was some plastic in it so I am turned off to Dunkin Iced at the moment.
I recently visited another coffee establishment in town. It was later in the evening. I had ordered iced coffee from them at a late hour before with no incident.
The girl working was someone I did not recognize. (Some of the people working know my order right when I pull up).
I asked for my order. I was told that they did not have that type of iced coffee.
I asked what kind of Iced Coffee did they have and the girl working said House Blend and Dark Roast.
I opted for House Blend.
It took her a while to figure out how to ring my order into the register and then I gave her my money.
I get my drink and it is warm.
I inquired with the girl working why my iced coffee was warm.
She responds that it was hot coffee but it was okay because she added ice.
I pointed out to her that iced coffee does not work that way. All the hot coffee does is melt the ice and this drink will just be a watered-down, lukewarm coffee.
I feel that someone who works in a coffee shop should know that iced coffee needs to be concentrated so when the ice melts, it still tastes like coffee.
I asked her why didn’t she tell me that she just didn’t have any iced coffee when I asked her what other types of iced coffee they had.
She looks at me with a dumbfounded expression.
She said she already dumbed the iced coffee because it was late. She obviously didn’t understand the question.
I doubt she even drinks coffee.
I should have asked for a refund. I feel like this girl wouldn’t have known how to do that either.
All I ended up was pissed, with a watered-down, lukewarm coffee that tasted like water and the flavored syrup.
My father always told me that I expect too much from people and maybe I do.
Maybe it’s the fact that I paid $3.51 for an iced coffee that was undrinkable.
Maybe 2020 will be the year that I start making iced coffee at home.
Or start drinking enough water that I am not too thirsty to drink hot coffee.
