When Is Coffee Not Really Coffee?

xPICT6714I feel bad for what I’m about to say about this coffee, because it was a gift.
Oh well.  I have to be honest.
If you like Southern Comfort liquor in your coffee, then this stuff is for you.  After you brew it up, it tastes EXACTLY like you’d just dumped two jiggers of the stuff into your coffee.
The flavor emulation is perfect, but alas, without the payoff of an alcoholic kick.
Don’t get me wrong.  I like Southern Comfort.  I just don’t like it in my coffee.
Why?  Because I like the taste of coffee.  No, more than like.  I love it.  I love the taste of coffee.
When you trash mess up destroy change the taste of coffee so much that you really can’t taste a coffee flavor anymore, is it really coffee?
Seriously, I want to know.  Because I don’t think it is.  It may have been once, but like a mad scientist changing an animal’s DNA, what you end up with is a mutant.  Something different.
Even as flavored coffees go, this one makes me … ill.
