Flavored Gourmet Coffee Is Great For Everyone!

February 27, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

Flavored gourmet coffee is a great way to have coffee with a bit of gourmet flair and sweetness. Flavoring coffee dates back to the Arabs in Yemen who from the very beginning began adding spices while the coffee was brewing. Today purveyors use natural and natural identical flavorings to create some of the most unique coffees in the world. The result is coffee with added sweetness and depth of flavor.

When I started drinking coffee, I would only drink flavored gourmet coffee or coffee that was loaded down with flavored coffee creamer. My palate was not used to the richness and robustness of the black coffee. My palate has changed, and now I enjoy drinking both flavored and non flavored gourmet coffee. Sometimes depending on the day, or if I feel like something sweeter and lighter, I will choose the flavored blends over non flavored.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of different kinds of gourmet flavored coffee on the market today. Some of the best sellers include: Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Irish Creme, Amaretto and Tiramisu. Today many find purveyors and suppliers of this wonderful beverage are offering more interesting flavors such as: Swiss Chocolate, Baked Alaska, Blueberry Cream and Caramel Apple. The flavors sound so intriguing and decadent, and in reality they are really not bad for you at all! Many companies use all natural flavorings or flavorings that do not add any extra calories.

Another great thing about gourmet flavored coffees is they are quite inexpensive! Many companies flavor only premium, high-grown, 100% Arabica coffees. That means treating yourself and your guests to superior coffee is not only delicious, but also quite cost-effective. The prices for this are right on par with the non-flavored choices and readily available for everyday drinking pleasure.

Gourmet flavored coffee is great for entertaining with as well. I like to serve a rich flavored coffee with notes of chocolate and cinnamon for after dinner. If I'm entertaining overnight guests I love to serve a sweet and light gourmet coffee with French vanilla or Hazelnut notes in the morning. This way the guests and my family can enjoy the different gourmet offerings. I also like to serve different choices depending on the seasons or holidays. One of my favorites is to serve Autumn Harvest Spice in the Fall. It has notes of pumpkin, nutmeg and spicy-sweet cinnamon which is perfect for Halloween and pumpkin harvest time!
