Coffee comes in so many different wonderful tastes and profiles that you are guaranteed to find one to pair with every mood you’re in. Looking for something robust to drink after dinner? Try a decadent French roast. Want a good pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon? You can’t go wrong with a flavorful Costa Rican blend. But wait, it gets better - flavored coffee opens up a whole new world of amazing to fill your cup with.
The making of flavored coffee is almost as old as the discovery of coffee. In the middle east, hundreds of years ago, nuts and various spices were blended with coffee to give it hearty and unique flavors. Since then, coffee roasters have developed flavoring oils to enhance and add flavor to coffee. Oils are extracted from various natural ingredients, such as cocoa or vanilla beans, and then combined with synthetic oils and used to coat the roasted coffee beans to add the desired flavors. Food scientists and roasters will often combine various natural flavors to create new and flavorful creations.
Everyone has their own preferred way to enjoy coffee; That being said, when it comes to flavored coffees, there are certain profiles that simply work better with specific times of the year.
