Instead of pretending like they just sipped from a life-giving, perfect cup of coffee, this group of kids weren’t afraid to express how much they hate the taste of coffee (anyone surprised?) regardless of the fact that the samples they sipped are from some pretty far-off locations like Japan, Turkey and France.
