    Need recommendations for chocolate, really CHOCOLATE, flavored coffee.

    The title of the tread says it all. If you have actually tasted the coffee that you are recommending, that would be most helpful. Thanks, --Jaes.

    This is not flavored coffee but Ethiopian Yargascheff roast medium and you will taste hint of chocolate and also Sidamo would give you good chocolate flavor.

    I get chocolate notes from sidamo when I roast it slower. Seems like the blueberry comes out more when I rush the roast.

    Btw, we recently went through a bag of Peruvian beans that tasted like milk chocolate and toffee when roasted light. (425*)

    However, the current offering lacks those characteristics.

    Hello "Jaes"

    Are you looking for coffee thats chocolate flavored (that has chocolate flavoring put in it) or coffee that naturally has chocolate undertones when it's brewed?


    There's a big difference.

    My favorite coffee with chocolate undertones is from Finca Vista Hermosa in Huehuetenango, Guatemala. They sell the green (unroasted) beans at burmancoffee.com, but I don't know where one would find it roasted. However, many coffees from Huehue have this flavor profile so it might be worth checking out. -- Jay

    First, thank you everyone for the responses. ---I am not a coffee expert-- just a guy that's been drinking coffee for 60+ years. I found a great chocolate tasting coffee several years ago (Folgers "Chocolate Truffle"---- but they are discontinuing it. (Yes I am the person who posted the tread about Chocolate Truffle (no repsonses)). ---I believe "PinkRose" has asked me the right question: "...coffee thats chocolate flavored (that has chocolate flavoring put in it) or coffee that naturally has chocolate undertones..." I am going for a flavored coffee that has an obnoxiously, blantant, chocolate flavor (no subtle, delicate, undertones). Information: I have controlled type II diabetus---and I love chocolate--but candy and/or chocolate milk is out. --The Folgers Chocolate Truffle was the answer for my chocolate cravings. --but Folgers saw fit to discontinue it. So, I need a substitue. ---Jaes.

    You may need to get creative.

    Have you tried making regular Folgers coffee and adding chocolate syrup to your cup?

    You may want to try a semi-sweet or low sugar chocoalate syrup.

    "PinkRose" ----What a super great suggestion! I would not have thought of it. Your suggestion (1) allows me to choose a chocolate syrup to fit my taste, and (2) it allows me to control the amount of chocolate taste by adding the amount of syrup that I want. Your suggestion is truely a high IQ solution to my problem. Thank you so much for helping out. ---Jaes

    Jaes, Your quest is not difficult and it should not go unrequited. You don't have to become a coffee roasting aficionado, and you don't need to resort to chocolate syrup, unless you want to - I find that solution very much apropos, if you want an additive. However, I've found Trader Joe's Extra Dark Sumatra beans ($5.99/lb), when ground fine, makes an espresso with bold dark chocolate overtones - not undertones or understated in any way; it is like a Hershey's Special Dark bar was melted right in there. I used to import Lavazza Il Perfetto Espresso coffee from Italy, but since finding this offering from TJ's at literally half or less the price, I've given up on the pricey fancy stuff.
