S.Engine's Baijiu Coffee Sucks, But Not Because of the Maotai
By Aug 6, 2019 Dining

TELL EVERYONE

S.Engine on Maoming Nan Lu is now doing a collaboration with TMall and selling Maotai coffee. Baijiu + coffee. Of course we went to go try it. It was bad. But the baijiu wasn't the problem.

We're all for putting baijiu in drinks, but the tiny measure of Kweichow Moutai was only detectable as a subtle funk. Coffee drinkers would probably find the oily sweetness unpleasant. Baijiu drinkers would probably wonder why you'd add a bold sauce-aroma Maotai if you don't want anyone to taste it. You could almost say the problem wasn't the baijiu, but that there wasn't enough baijiu. Why waste the Maotai? It's a daring concept, but the final result not worth the 68rmb it costs to try. Disappointing, like their 98rmb dessert set, with cookies made by China Eastern's caterer.

We got played. Gimmick 1, SmSh 0. Better luck next time, Maotai!
