What else do people put in their coffee?
 
Hello everyone.

I recently had a thread, about nutmeg. Somebody said they put nutmeg and/or cinnamon, in their coffee. I tried it, and it was delicious. And it smelled so nice and Christmasy. Who cares, that it is no longer Christmas, it was good anyway.

Does anybody have any more cool coffee flavour ideas. I know i can buy a range of syrups, but I prefer to use more natural things, that I make myself.

I put NOthing in my coffee, but a tip for those with cholesterol problems--cinnamon has been pretty well proven to lower cholesterol. So coffee and oatmeal are pretty good ways to do it.
Cinnamon flavored coffee can be made by just adding it to the grounds when brewing. Save yourself buying expensive flavored coffee.

Hello Candocook

That is exactly what i did, yesterday.
I added the cinnimon, to the grinds, in the coffee filter.

I must say I like caramel in my coffee, or good old sugar. Got a sweet tooth when it comes to coffee. Can't drink it without milk though!! And I quite like a machiato (spelt correctly?? someone might tell me) with icecream. Yumm. I don't want to be ignorant but in Australia Nescafe make an instant coffee sachet with cinnamon. Its pretty good if you don't mind instant but you need to add a little more milk to make it delish.

I like chicory in my coffee...It comes with the coffee:wink:

Great idea, I will try it tomorrow, thanks! Usually, I put a flavored creamer - fat free vanilla creme or hazelnut, just a splash.

mudbug 01-16-2007 04:08 PM

I want my coffee to taste like coffee. Just black, thanks, and no stuff that makes it taste like a milkshake.

PytnPlace 01-16-2007 04:36 PM

I like mine black and a couple times a month I go for a vanilla skim latte.

CharlieD 01-16-2007 04:58 PM

sweetened condenced milk is my favorite, and a lot of it.

Uncle Bob 01-16-2007 05:16 PM

Oh I just remembered...Not fond of flavored coffee...However if you haven't tried "home made" Irish cream by Michelemarie's TNT recipe you are missing a treat!!! Her recipe is posted here on DC somewhere...you'll find it and be glad you did!!

Please forgive me for intruding on your post but I thought I would post the link to Michelemarie's Irish Cream Recipe (kitchenelf)

mudbug 01-16-2007 05:23 PM

Well, Uncle Bob,it is finally getting colder here and I DO like MM so much, so I will have to find that recipe. I remember the one you/she are talking about.

Finally getting colder...you in the south too??

I'll tell you this...if you don't like the recipe...then their is something bad wrong with you...:lol:

mudbug 01-16-2007 05:31 PM

Not really the south - D.C. area: the one with all the southern efficiency and northern charm (thanks, JFK).

Hope they're ain't nothin' bad wrong with me, Uncle B. I will lie to you if I need to once I try MM's drink.

Thanks Uncle Bob, you are my biggest fan:rolleyes: ! I am so glad that you liked it - it is definately good in coffee - I forgot about that! Thanks for reminding me!

auntdot 01-16-2007 05:39 PM

Usually take it black but at Christmas time will add the store bought eggnog, the stuff in the carton.

Uncle Bob 01-16-2007 06:05 PM

Hey Mudbug....

Oh, that sound's good! Have to try that next year!

VeraBlue 01-16-2007 08:45 PM

I don't care for the syrups, they contain sugar and a whole slew of other unmentionables.

I've been known to drop a hershey's kiss in the cup...and that only helps to compliment the godiva liqueor or amaretto I've already dropped in.

I don't do that often, however. I'm more of a splenda and light cream kinda gal.

I do like Irish coffee....:ermm:

Dove 01-16-2007 09:24 PM

TNT Irish Cream
(MM's)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1 tsp chocolate syrup
1 tsp instant coffee
1 tsp butter flavoring
1 tsp vanilla
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pt half and half or whipping cream
1 - 1-1/2 c irish whiskey

In blender combine above and blend for at least a minute. Good on the rocks or in coffee.

amber 01-16-2007 09:51 PM

I dont do coffee anymore, just decaf, but when I did drink coffee, my favorite was a raspberry chocolate bean that I ground and brewed. I added milk and just a bit of sugar.

stargazer021 01-16-2007 10:09 PM

I prefer regular coffee with just a little bit of cream. I used to drink flavored coffees all the time but got tired of them, except for now just once in a great while.

Mel! 01-17-2007 03:11 AM

Hello Pdilippa

Caramel sounds good. But my waistline. If i did not drink so much coffee, I would put caramel in.

Hello Uncle Bob

I had chicory in my coffee once. It came with the coffee, when I bought it. It did taste good. Unfortunately, it also came with sugar. If I add my own chicory, to the coffee, i could have it unsweetened.
Where do u buy your chicory? What does chicory actually look like?

Mel

Mel! 01-17-2007 03:17 AM

Hello Michelemarie

I did not even realise, that one can buy flavoured creamer. I suppose i could make my own, now that u have given me the idea.
I could buy some fresh cream, and put vanilla in it and then put it in the fridge, to use, when I need.

Mel

Mel! 01-17-2007 03:19 AM

Home made Irish cream.
Wow!!!!
Just at Christmas, I was wondering if it is possible to make this.
This will be a useful recipe.

Mel

Mel! 01-17-2007 03:24 AM

Hello VeraBlue

That does sound good. But I think i will keep it for special occassions.

Mel

Mel! 01-17-2007 03:26 AM

Thanks Dove

Irish cream is certainly good, in coffee. But I will also save that one for special occasions.

Mel

Uncle Bob 01-17-2007 07:46 AM

Mel....

I don't know if you can buy just chicory...I have never seen it..

I buy/drink a coffee made by Community Coffee Company...It is called "New Orleans Blend" The coffee/chicory is blended together in the bag. It is on every grocery shelf here...If you can't find it in your area...they do have a web site....Some folks love it...others hate it....Isn't that why they make apples and they make oranges???:smile:

mudbug 01-17-2007 04:19 PM

"Community" is the coffe all my relatives in LA swear by, Uncle Bob.

LEFSElover 01-17-2007 04:48 PM

got off the plane and headed for the airport coffee shop. while there, for my coffee later on the plane, I took some vanilla, chocolate, nutmeg and cinnamon in a napkin for my plane coffee may taste good too. the days of half and half are gone and the flavored creams are also too high in fat. the ff ones are boring so why bother?

usually it's just s+l and black coffee

Dove 01-17-2007 10:07 PM

Mel.
The Irish Cream is Michelemarie's recipe.
I'm not clcear on the butter flavoring..is that the powderd kind like butter buds or the king from a spice jar that can go over popcorn??

Mel! 01-18-2007 04:09 AM

Thanks Uncle Bob.

I will look out, for it, in the shops.

Mel

boufa06 01-18-2007 04:53 AM

Folks, I do have what looks like the perfect product for this thread. It combines just about every nice ingredient or flavouring known. But the only fly in the ointment is that the manufacturer forgot the coffee!!:ohmy: Seriously though, it is a nice and healthy coffee substitute that tastes a lot like coffee (minus the caffeine) and also includes Uncle Bob's chicory too!:wink:

Butter flavoring can be found on your grocer's aisle..near/next to vanilla, almond, etc flavoring.

SHAMALICIOUS 01-18-2007 07:48 AM

I like to put in a little condensed milk, gives a nice milky sugary flavour

Jurdoc 01-18-2007 11:26 AM

try a small handful of orange peels in your coffee, leave them there about a half hour, reheat coffee without orange peels, keep the cup covered


also, marijuana is a popular item to soak in coffee, especially in india.

ronjohn55 01-18-2007 12:53 PM

I can honestly say I've never put beer in my coffee...

I have however, put coffee in my beer. Espresso stout is a wonderful beer on a cold evening! :tongue:

As for what else goes in the coffee... Not much.

John

[quote=Jurdoc]try a small handful of orange peels in your coffee, leave them there about a half hour, reheat coffee without orange peels, keep the cup covered


This reminded me of Cafe' Brulot....nice orange, cinnanom, cloves, taste..

Mel! 01-19-2007 05:38 AM

Hello Boufa

Are u going to tell us the name of that product or is it a secret?
I suppose, if it tastes fantastic, i would drink it at night, instead of my heavily caffinated drinks. I love tea(the caffinated kind) and coffee.
