[Kirin | Koiwai Brand Milk and Coffee]

Kirin makes many varieties of coffees and teas. This particular strong blend of coffee was mixed with milk from Kowai cows, genetically pure cows whose lineage can be traced back over 100 years. The taste is good, smooth, and rich. The caffeine buzz was greater than what I had hoped, and there was nothing truly special about this milk coffee that separated it from the herd, but all in all it's a solid product.

  1. I like the sound of this one! The milk is enticing and I'm always up for a new coffee experience although I think you'll agree after you've tried a BOSS coffee or two that they're hard to beat.

  2. I have to disagree, I have tried all kinds of coffee here in Japan and for me, nothing even comes close to Koiwai's Milk Coffee! Now I drink about 1 a day. It is just a little more sweet than other kinds of milk coffee but isn't too sweet. Really it is perfect... for me anyway...

What seems like a fairly harmless, perhaps even novel yet odd idea--tea in a can--espresso style... forget it. At my first sip I thought...
