Deeppresso Coffee
Deeppresso Coffee?

I wondered if you were supposed to drink this when you were depressed, to kind of lift your spirits? Or drink it if you were a little to wound up. Maybe you need to “take the edge off”. There was only one way to find out.

It was on the shelf of my favorite Family Mart convenient store. Call it Engrish or just pure marketing, I was fascinated. The result was that it kind of tastes like the regular coffee-in-a-can. So my mood was not effected either way.

The reality is that I think they are combining “Deep” and “Espresso”. The Japanese love to combine foreign words and mash them into a smaller non pronounceable words.
