In my experience (working at a coffee shop), even people who don't like the taste of coffee, still enjoy the smell of it brewing, I figure it has something to do with the VOCs that are released upon grinding and brewing, some of which are not soluble (or not as soluble) in water, so they don't translate into the final brewed cup.

Have you ever tried cold-brew coffee? Not saying that you need to, but I find it tastes so different from regular hot coffee (no matter which method I'd tried), that I'm curious if you have a different reaction to it. It's a lot less acidic and bitter, in my experience.

I had some canned energy drink thing from Starbucks once that I think might have been described as made from cold brew coffee, though I might be misremembering. It had the overall impression of a soda, but its caffeine content was of coffee origin. I enjoyed that. Didn't taste like coffee at all.

I like cold or warm coffees. And energy drinks. I know they're totally awful yet I used to try every flavor I saw in different stores. And then feel all buzzed and tingly for about an hour or two. Controversial food opinions about kids: I think if I were a mother I'd let my kids eat mostly what they wanna. I wouldn't force feed them vegetables, or take away their candies on Halloween like some mothers do to their daughters, or scold them for eating past dinnertime or whatever. I wanna let my kids like like their foods and not hate on them because I told them to eat/drink what I would eat or drink. Your experiences with parenting may vary.
