One Epcot Food & Wine Festival item I’ve contemplated ordering is the Shakin’ Jamaican Coffee from the American Adventure Coffee Cart. The coffee drink is served hot or frozen, and is a combination of Joffrey’s coffee, Kahlua, Vanilla and Caramel. Now, here’s the thing with me and coffee: I like the taste, but I don’t drink it. I maybe have it once a year, and if I’m drinking it, I will be drinking it black. And if you see me drinking it, it would be wise to run in the opposite direction.
Sure, I’ve gone to “have a cup of coffee” with friends and hang out back in the college days, and my coffee would be laced with some skim milk and a couple artificial sweeteners. I didn’t mind it. I did mind coffee breath. Oh, how I can’t stand that part, especially when I’m not smelling it on my own breath. Eventually I realized that I could still hang out and instead have a water or soda or anything BUT coffee instead.
So what can I say about the Shakin’ Jamaican Coffee? Not much. I can guarantee you I won’t be ordering it hot since it’s still reaching 90 degrees down here. And even ordering it frozen isn’t all that appealing to me due to all the sweet stuff going into it. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know I’m not big on sweets and Matt can’t stand coffee, so we’re not exactly batting a thousand for the other picking up the slack if we order this drink.
So why am I even writing this? Well, I want to have coverage for each kiosk on the blog. If nothing else, this page will be of historical reference for what was served at the 2013 F&W Festival. If I try the Shakin’ Jamaican Coffee, I’ll update the page. Promise. If you’re a sweet coffee lovin’ person and would like to send in your photo and review of the drink, I’d be happy to post and give you credit!
Tanya of EatDrinkDisney has the scoop! Here’s her review on the Shakin’ Jamaican Coffee!
First, let me introduce myself – I am Tanya, aka Mrs. EatDrinkDisney. I am definitely a coffee drinker. I am to be avoided at all costs until I’ve had my coffee. I walk into Starbucks and don’t have to say a word. They know I’ll be having a grande non-fat, no whip mocha, stirred. When I make my coffee at home, I have to set it up the night before so it will be ready when I wake up. Fixing my coffee in the morning is too complicated a task to handle with a non-caffeinated brain.
