Flavored Coffee

Flavored Coffee or Black? That is the Question


If a purist asks whether you want your coffee black, the answer will often be an inadvertent yes, then grimace inwardly. Of course black coffee is wonderful. There are several wonderful types, blends and mixes also that could be enjoyed. This is precisely why over the ages coffee lovers all over the world have kept experimenting and coming up with different coffee flavors and types.

Coffee enjoyment is a subjective matter, really a personal thing.

Flavored coffee drinkers must stand up and unite. When caught red handed buying it, do not make the flimsy alibi that it was meant for your mother, come on. Drink it and be done away with it. After all, it is your taste buds you want to please, not someone else’s.

Drinking flavoured coffee may be as old as Hamurrabi. Why, even the Turks of old, famous for having no sugar mixe the coffee in their ibrik with cinnamon, cardamom, clove (of all things), sometimes as weird as a pepper flavored coffee. In other places there is also a coconut flavored coffee. There are even rumors of adding garlic. The purist, bless his good soul will grimace at that, but then you’re even.

Flavored coffee beans are separated into the following categories.

  • Chocolate-based flavored coffee beans such as chocolate mint
  • Fruit based Flavored coffee - the raspberry and yes, the coconut
  • Spice-based flavored coffee - cinnamon
  • Vanilla based flavored coffee, includes the nut-based flavors such as hazelnut and macadamia nut

While the lists are the basic groupings, roasters are also experimenting with mixing the groups to come out with extraordinary coffee flavors.

Coffee continues to undergo much research and innovation in developing fresh tastes and flavours. No perfect blend has been discovered in spite of such claims. We still have a chance to come out with our own original flavored coffee. I think though that I will pass on the garlic.
