I don’t drink coffee, but I know many of you do, so I thought I would pass on this tidbit of info. Most flavored coffees contain artificial flavors and scents. Yuck!
Instead of drinking a chemistry experiment, add your own flavorings to coffee beans before you grind them up. One or two hazelnuts, a couple of almonds, some cocao nibs or a cardamon pod ground together with enough fair-trade organic coffee beans to make a pot will perk up your already perky coffee. I Goggled “flavored coffee recipes” and it looks like there is plenty to choose from. And don’t forget you can always just grab a naturally flavored candy cane off the tree and give a quick stir.
For us non-coffee drinkers, there is no reason why we can’t add some freshly ground flavors to our hot chocolate. Yum!
