Anyways, one of my first "South Korea" moments that I experienced after arriving was having my first cup of Maxim Mocha Gold coffee, in a tiny paper cup. It's a quick coffee that packs a punch, however some might find there is too much sugar and artificial creamer in the packet. I'm going to show you how to reduce this into the perfect cup of coffee that can be balanced to your liking.
First, pinch 1 inch down on the right of the packet so your fingers cover the coffee cup image. Then, cut open the package and pour the mix into your cup. By squeezing tight you are holding the coffee mix in your fingers, so you can pour out some of the sugar and creamer. Mix with water, and voila, you now know how to adjust the sugar/creamer content easily!
You'll get used to seeing this coffee in every store in South Korea:

Here's my test packet to show how it looks; the majority of the coffee is in the end, but it can get a little mixed in:
I hope this little tip is helpful--results may vary, so don't hold me accountable if this doesn't work for you. Why spend $5 at Starbucks on a latte when you can drink ten of these for free (if your work supplies them)? Actually, I think I would rather stick to a $5 Starbucks at the end of the day. What's your favorite coffee beverage? Orange mocha frappuccino?
