    Re: COFFEE FLAVOURS

    Interesting, but to a complete newbie to flavouring can you explain how it works and what you do to achieve these flavours?

    thanks

    Dont want to sound like a coffee snob, but what are these like? I know that people eat coffee flavoured chocolate, but in my experience, it tastes like cheap and stale vesions of both. Surely choclate flavoured coffee is a similar taste sensation. I think Id rather have a coffee AND a piece of Belgian chocolate. (piece = whole block/bag/box) Please enlighten us.

    [smiley=2vrolijk_08.gif] youve read my mind. *I have been known to buy these chocolate covered coffee beans, but I use them to decorate mocha cake. *In fact I only recently found out that people buy them to eat *;D *And sorry, I have never been tempted to flavour my coffee with anything, except maybe cream. *Just remembered, I have been known to flavour my hot chocolate with coffee *:P

    People also drink nescafe with six sugars, but I dont think thats coffee. In the same way, apply the same standards to your chocolate and have a coffee praline at Pierre Marcolini or Godiva instead of judging it by a block of sugar laden supermarket trash.

    Dont diss chocolate!

    I dont think he was! *He said hed rather eat a piece of Belgian chocolate, instead of the supermarket trash. *Again, I agree with him. *I dont buy chocolate often, but when I do, I want it to be real chocolate. *A friend of mine got a box of Cadburys Roses and was thrilled. *Now I know whom to re-gift it to, next time someone gives me a box! *;D

    I think Nessie was doing the opposite! He was saying that hed rather eat fine chocolate AND drink fine coffee. Not quite sure how thats dissing chocolate. Im with him (asuming Nessie is male).

    Before we get too far away from the topic can anyone here tell us mere mortals more about the flavouring.

    Re: COFFEE FLAVOURS

    Me thinks flavours in coffee are a little too low-brow for true snobs ;)

    If you go to Gloria Jeans you will find half their menu is full of sticky flavoured coffee and hey, some people like that (just ask any 16yo school girl about GJ caramel lattes).

    I think latte is a kids drink myself but do drink them sometimes as I love milk but do prefer great coffee with nothing else.

    I can take each drink as a drink on its own merits and a hazelnut coffee might be just what your dinner guests would love.

    The problem seems to be that more often than not the syrup based drinks are to hide undrinkable coffee so most CSrs have no need for them. :)

    Best bet is if you give GJs a go sometime, if you like it then Les can supply the syrups for you to do this at home!

    Re: COFFEE FLAVOURS

    These arent for putting in your cup, these are to flavour the beans themselves. You can get flavoured syrups in most places. 50mL is a bit small for putting into cups anyways.

    Re: COFFEE FLAVOURS

    Perhaps getting away from the topic somewhat... But a lfew drops of espresso in a glass of coca cola is sensational.

    Re: COFFEE FLAVOURS

    The only flavouring Ive had in coffee that I decided was passable was Kahlua... :) A kahlua latte is now on the menu at home for dinner guests, and its fairly wicked as a late night indulgence. Not sure Id still call it coffee though..

    As a bit of trivia I was introduced to this by a cool ex-Californian running a fantastic cafe called Kaku in, of all places, the small Japanese town of Kutchan in Hokkaido. Some of the best coffee Ive had anywhere, and totally unexpected.
