    Flavored Beans vs. Syrup in Drip Coffee

    Flavored drip coffee is popular in our area, but I don't want to carry a lot of different beans. Has anyone compared using flavored beans to using a flavored syrup in a regular coffee on a per cup basis?

    dropped flavored beans

    When we bought our place just over a year ago we dropped flavored coffee beans from the menu completely...a few people were bugged, most accept regular dark roast that we serve...but it was strange to me almost "NONE" of the fans of flavored coffee wanted a syrup added in lieu of flavored beans. I almost went back and added them but am glad I didn't. It took several months but the requsts for flavored coffee are gone now almost 99% - people know what we offer and come for it - thankfully.

    im pretty sure im one of the 99% of ppl who just go for the regular.

    keep to the original, pass on the flavoured!

    I prefer flavored benas, syrup just smothers the natural aroma and flavor of the coffee-in essence, it's over the top and annoys me to no end.

    flavored coffee

    we opted for syrup flavored coffee only. we tried brewed and it just didn't sell, a few people ask but not many, we offer 20 different torani flavors just for coffee and we sell alot, 3 pumps in a 16oz cup seems to give the right amount of flavor. Remember brewed flavors only means that the beans were roasted and then a concentrate flavoring was added to the bean after, most people don't realize that it is almost the same thing.

    Flavored Beans

    We only carry regular beans and add syrup for flavor. We found that flavored beans were usually poor quality beans sprayed with a flavored oil

    Flavored Coffee

    We have a big following for flavored coffee in our area. I did find a supplier that sells excellent flavored coffee. We keep only 3 kinds on hand.

    Vanilla/French Caramel/Hazelnut

    At Thanksgiving & Christmas time we'll bring in a seasonal flavored coffee and it does extremely well.

    When we first opened I didn't want to do flavored coffee, but I have such a demand for it - that it became a necessary evil. I also realized, that it's not about your personal beliefs sometimes, it's about customer demand and that they are willing to pay for your product.

    I've been giving this exact question some thought lately so glad to find this thread. I really don't want to mess with flavored beans and was thinking I would just use the syrups for the same effect.

    To take it one step further though, do you guys think it would be "unethical"
    to add the syrup to a batch and not tell the customer? By this I mean, let's say we'd post the daily flavor as being hazelnut, yuk, or whatever and then just brewing up a carafe of regular and flavoring the brew.

    I can't imagine most people even asking but...ya never know.

    H MAN - Would it be as cost effective to use the syrup to flavor the coffee, or would you be better off buying the flavored bean? I am getting ready to open my shop and am pondering what to carry...
