Huntington Edition: Butter It Up
Butter in coffee is a new thing. And apparently a thing marketed as being healthy.
I don't drink coffee often, unless I really need it, so I don't pick up on small details that everyday coffee drinkers would. But after a rainy day traveling, a hot cup of coffee sounded good. And Butter It Up was close, so why not?
I ordered "The Katie," which has butter, cream and local honey. Honestly, though, I couldn't really taste any of that. Instead, it tasted like... well, coffee. And kind of average coffee, at that.
I like that it's something a little different, sure. But a whole marketing concept around something that doesn't have a ton of flavor to me is interesting. So, to me, average coffee. I think I'd rather go for a latte or maybe something else.
What do you guys think? Have you had butter coffee? Does it change the taste? Do you like it or nah? Any diehard butter coffee lovers out there? Englighten me.
