    Does anyone like "flavored coffees"? if so, what brands? and what flavors?

    Long time ago, I mean when Reagan was the president, I used to drink flavored coffee. Irish Cream was my favorite.
    it seems like now, 5th Presidency later on, there are way more Flavored coffees than before.

    as example, once in a while, when my coffee was completely out and had to get some immediately, I used to stop by at Spouts market to pick up some coffee (mostly Guatemala or Colombia medium roast, of course Ethiopian or Kenyan if they had any). Up to a year ago, they used to have about 20% of flavored coffees, now? more than half of their selection (they have about 20 selections) are flavored coffee.

    is that mean the market share for flavored coffee is up???

    what do you think about this? let me know your opinion.
    thanks

    I always say that I do not like to drink flavored coffee but I love selling it. It is big money. My last company we were selling 100k lbs of coffee a month(9 years ago) 49k of that was flavored coffee. The trick to getting repeat business on flavored coffee is use a great base. A lot of companies figure the flavoring will mask negative tastes in lower grade coffee. I say you start off with trash you end up with trash. We also try to keep it fun. We have a drunk pig that is bourbon and bacon flavor as well as the natural version of Viagra coffee(horny goat weed infused) and our newest creation Chicken and Waffles. What is the craziest flavor you all have seen?

    SPICY TACO COFFEE !
    Heavily infused with Mexican spices and definitely has a meat flavored undertone!!!!!!!!
    definitely one of the weirdest coffee in the world.

    I like to get the baileys creamers now because they're real cream/milk (unlike coffemate flavors) and they come with flavors too. Ive been using the hazelnut but the other flavors are kind of just sweetened milk.

    yes. I also agree. if you have to drink flavored coffee, I also think that using some sort of flavored creamer to give different flavors for the coffee.

    If your drinking flavored coffee I suggest adding milk and sugar. I brings the flavor out.
