Making home-made flavored coffee beans.


QUESTION:


Does anyone have a recipe to flavor coffee beans or fresh ground coffee before using it in brewing? All the recipes so far are to make an actual drink or have no measurements for the ingredients. We are looking to try to flavor our own freshly ground beans. We would prefer to use raw ingredients like vanilla bean, cinnamon sticks, cocoa, or their ground equivalents rather than a syrup, if possible.

ANSWER:

You make a good point about figuring out the quantity of flavoring required. I haven't seen information on that. I guess if it were me I would simply start off by experimenting until I found the proportion of ground coffee to flavoring that gave just the right taste.

For some more information, we do have a page on flavored coffee. And another page about natural flavors for coffee.

Homemade coffee flavoring
by: Judy

We've been experimenting with flavoring our coffee and here is a couple of our favorites. We add cinnamon to our ground coffee before brewing and it's really yummy. It gives the coffee just a hint of cinnamon. For a full pot, we use about a teaspoon of cinnamon. Another flavoring we add is cocoa with vanilla extract (powdered) or cocoa with almond extract. Both are very good!

like these, maybe?

I found these. I would love to have a good flavoured decaf, but it's difficult to find. I may start making my own with these oils.
