You apparently haven’t found your flavor, or simply don’t care enough about coffee. I enjoy my Freddo (which doesn’t smell) as much as my hot coffee and I will drink it even if it means having to hold back poop while out with friends. I really look forward to it every day I wake up but I am making it myself now and have become quite picky tbh but it’s worth it. As for the smell, I don’t like the smell of espresso. If it is a flavored blend for filter coffee, say caramel for example, then yes that indeed smells exceptional.
my morning coffee which is at 5 am is for that reason Later in the day it’s all about flavor or sweetened coffee more for energy. Backstory I use to be a barista, so different origins of coffee beans creates different blends either strong, sweet, and balance. I no longer try to find better-tasting coffee. But to be helpful if you like strong dark coffee go for more African blends aka Ethiopian, Kenyan beans. If you like more sweeter beans, south American beans, my favorite would be Columbian, Brazilian. For mild Asian origin, beans would be placed there.
