Being a coffee lover, my mum tried all means to cut down my daily coffee intake. I must say, my addiction was getting a little out of hand with me downing 4 cups of strong coffee everyday. I honestly think that the coffee helps me stay vertical throughout the day before I pass out as soon as I lay down in bed.
Before, my mum actually made me go cold turkey, not allowing me any coffee. But it didn't work especially when I have sneaky cuppas during work. So, OWL coffee is our compromise. It's coffee at probably the weakest stage, in my opinion. I hated it to the core, but rather than having no coffee at home, it's something I've lived with and gotten used to for a year now.
I'm a bit of a coffee snob, and would only drink instant coffee when I absolutely have to, like pulling an all-nighter for my schoolwork and such. My mum has always brought Nescafe's 3-in-1, so when that one time she wanted a bit of a change and brought Owl's, I was quite frankly, appalled.
I've always thought of Owl as a brand for cheap, low-quality coffee, and I was right. It tasted horrible and reminds me of dirty, drain water. Enough to make me swear off coffee forever if I have to drink Owl's for the rest of my life.
