# 90 Here I am again with another unusual beverage… I’ll be very surprised if anyone here has tasted this durian coffee… Durian fruit itself is probably something that many would avoid having because of its strong odor. I have tasted fresh durian before, and I could tolerate the smell for the taste of its sweet and luscious meat. But to have the fruit as a flavor for coffee is just a strange concept to me. Still, there must be some out there who like the idea. Apparently this durian coffee is a well sought-after item in some places...

@much2say It's product of Indonesia... I made my husband finish half of the mug and he didn't like it either... So I don't know what we will do with the rest of the box... Good thing it's a small box containing only 5 sachets... We will try to find anyone who might be willing to try it...

You summed up my thoughts precisely - who, in their right mind, would want coffee so pungently flavoured as to taste, and undoubtedly smell, of the Durian fruit? I have never encountered Durian, but have heard it described by Malaysian friends years ago - a delightful taste and texture, if you can bear the stench, apparently. Mind you, I have been known to hold my nose long enough to savour the taste of a particularly ripe Limburger or Munster cheese, and they smell particularly foul too, so who am I to cast the first stone?

My colleague travelled Malaysia before and she bought some durian flavored coffee there. This is why I drank it before. It is a surprise for me because I accept it. It tastes nice in my opinion. Probably it tastes better than mixing it with Cola?
