Jet Back to School with the Jetson Scooter #ad

If I was to try and master any mode of transportation outside of my usual bus and walk modes, it would be to master to the scooter.

You can absolutely detect the notes of chocolate with the coffee as well as a fruity tasty. It's actually the type of coffee that works so well just drinking it black without cream or
