Who doesn't enjoy flavored coffee (esp. flavored - but harder to find - decaf varieties)? My favorites are French Vanilla Dunkin' Donuts or any brand hazelnut decaf with lots of half'n'half and some Splenda - "sissified"! OK, OK...I know there are some of you out there who can't abide a flavored cup of Joe, and drink only plain coffee, or even plain black coffee. Needless to say, you probably won't find too much useful info in this post. :)
What I don't love about flavored coffee all the current gourmet prices.
So, my solution is: unflavored regular or decaf of your normal brand, plus some added pizazz. To my perhaps unsophisticated palate, indistinguishable from already-flavored store bought coffee, and around half the price (or less if you bought it in a coupon deal - yee haw!).
Add the following on top of the coffee as it sits in the filter (I have a cone-filter drip machine):
Regular Ol' Vanilla: 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Fall/Winter Mix: 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 2 dashes nutmeg
Almond Rocha: 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp. almond extract (+ dash cinnamon if desired)
Any of you do similar home doctoring? I always welcome others' homemade coffee confection recipes. :)
