Coffee sensation

I’ve been trying different types of coffee, various flavors of coffee, numerous methods of coffee preparation…all in the effort to find the perfect (for me) cup of coffee. Now, I must say, I am definitely not a strong, black cup of coffee kind of girl.  I don’t know how so many of you drink it like that.  I’ve tried it, believe me, I’ve tried it…I try it with every new type of coffee that I buy…and I still can’t stomach it.  I wish I could.  It would be the perfect low-calorie drink, a drink that would deliver that much-needed jolt of caffeine.  But, I just don’t like it unless it’s sweet and flavored.  I’m sorry, that’s just the way I am.  I think I’m just going to have to accept that about myself.  And really, is that such a terrible thing?  I mean, I’m not saying I want a hit of cocaine in my coffee, just a little sweetness and flavor.

I bought another type of coffee to try yesterday…chocolate raspberry…before you say, “That’s not real coffee.”, just hear me out.  I opened the package this morning and the scent that wafted out was heavenly, a chocolatey raspberry coffee kind of thing going on.  So I prepared a small pot using a little less coffee than the directions called for.  Once it was finished brewing, I poured it into my favorite mug, added one packet of Truvia and a slug of this dark chocolate creamer I found. 

Holy moly, this was amazing…not an overpowering coffee flavor, but a mild coffee flavored with chocolate and raspberries.  Wow!!  If I’d had the time, I would have also tried this iced.  I guess I can look forward to doing that another day.

So, do you like your coffee strong or mild?  Black or some other way?

  1. the coffee creamers are great for a little flavor kick to a “normal” cup of coffee. I also use a splash if I am making smoothies that need a little help in the flavor dept!

  2. I’ve been experimenting, too; never been a coffee drinker. Unfortunately, the aroma that comes out of the bag isn’t always a harbinger of the flavor to come. I need to watch caffeine, so I’ve been trying decaf flavors, which are rather limited. I recently found a chocolate hazelnut decaf. I haven’t seen the dark chocolate flavoring, but like the white chocolate mocha one a lot. Now if I can figure out how to make them blended with ice and get the texture right…
    Glad you’ve found something you like!
