Flavored coffee – Not for the unadventurous
The world is divided into tea drinkers and coffee drinkers and as far as we know the latter are winning. From ‘studies’ that show that coffee drinkers are more successful and live longer (how did they measure that?) – it looks like they just keep winning. To cater to different tastes and likes – there’s decaf, instant and regular coffee and even these are further divided into flavors that meld beautifully with the natural bitterness of the coffee bean. Whether it’s the mild caramel or the strong cinnamon, the full-bodied mocha or the nutty hazelnut, the festive gingerbread or the on-the-fence mint – there’s something for everyone.
While these are very common and are available at Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, Dunkin’ Donuts or even the local coffee shop that can whip up a great cup of joe – here are five weird coffee flavors, certainly not for the faint at heart!
Jack Daniels Coffee
Teetotalers, steer clear. If you are a coffee lover and love your glass of JD equally, how wonderful does this blend sound? Infused with authentic Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, but actually with 0% alcohol, this is an absolute win-win. Available in decaf and regular this sells for $7.95 for a 1.5 oz bag.
Maple Bacon Coffee
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and this coffee blends three wonderfully different flavors into one glorious drink. Made and sold by BocaJava, this is one of their most popular blends and retails at $7.99/8 oz.
Star Wars Vader’s Dark Side Roast Coffee
You either love Star Wars or you hate it. There’s no grey area here. If you are one who arrives at Comic Con, year after year dressed to kill as Darth Vader, or lazily as a storm trooper, or gorgeously as Princess Leia, this is one coffee you cannot afford to miss. Promising to give you a taste of the dark side, this ‘rich hand roasted coffee’ has a sharp flavor with spicy undertones.
Taco Coffee by Coffee Am
If you love Mexican food, this is one you will not be able to resist. Coffee beans mixed with taco spices, topped off with a meaty finish. In no sense of the term is the traditional, but it just might do to curb those midnight taco cravings. Costs $12.49 for a one lb bag.
