    i wasnt sure..

    i imagine that pre-roast the bean wouldnt really take on any flavour?

    Ive said it before, and Ill say it again: :exclamation

    If you want an extra flavour with your coffee, add it to the cup. Adding to the beans before roasting means itll burn, after roasting and it contaminates your grinder.

    I do like a bit of Irish Mist with my iced coffee.

    Re: soaking beans

    Its been a long time since Ive done it but WHY wouldnt anyone just add it after theyve made the coffee?

    Greg makes two valid points of the negative results of doing otherwise.
