    Aventures Of A Newbie...another question

    I am wanting to try my hand with flavored coffees. What type of beans are most commonly used when you are wanting to add flavor ?

    Okay - sorry for the sarcasm, I couldn't resist!

    I disagree with coffeeroastersclub5 to a point...I think if you are in the premium coffee business you should always give your customers a coffee worth putting your name on. I recommend a bean with a mild flavor, so that the additive stands out. But in our shop we would never skimp on quality.

    If Topher is out there, I'd like to hear his take...he roasts and flavors tons of coffee annually.

    I use a nice Brazil, have use Panama and Colombina excelso...hey la crema you should try using the excelso you might like the results! When I was at the casino I used to think that using a not as high quality coffee for flavor base wouldn't matter...Don't get me wrong it wasn't crap but I wouldn't be impressed drinking it by itself! Truth be known since I have changed the results are so much better. Yes the flavor is on the bean but if the bean has a bad flavor it will shine through...also if it has no flavor you have a cup of brown flavor water...you have to remember it is still coffee...hope this helps.

    Well I agree with both Topher and L.C. I use with Colombian or Brazilian. It depends what I have in access. Although the tastes are a bit different, they both provide the necessary profile to entice the taste buds. The only thing to be careful of is if you have a regular customer for your flavored coffees, be sure not to get them mixed up. Seeing that my customer base is not as large for flavored coffees as Topher, I don't have to watch my P's & Q's quite as much. But I agree in any case never serve lower quality unless you plan to put someone elses name on it...Just kidding, I couldn't reisit

    I would try the Indian Mysore. Generally cheaper than a brazil/colombian and very smooth and bland.
