Gourmet flavoured coffee grew in popularity in recent years, but dates back for a very long time. The common belief about coffee dates back from the Middle East and further. There, people began to experiment for the first time with the addition of spices (like cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg) directly into the coffee. Perhaps these early flavoured coffees were the first of the gourmet coffees. Nobody knows for sure.
While you can still make your own flavoured coffee, the gourmet flavoured coffee type found in a specialty store is more tasty and better rounded. Gourmet coffee shops usually have five varieties of flavoured coffee beans. However it is not great for a furnace to combine two of these varieties in a coffee bean (such as beans with vanilla).
Flavoured Coffee Beans
Flavoured chocolate coffee beans are extremely popular. You can find all kinds of chocolate, from dark chocolate to cream-chocolate which has a pale colour. Flavoured mint chocolate beans are also very popular.
There is a wide variety of flavoured fruit beans also available on the market. Especially, flavoured beans with raisins are very popular . Coconut flavoured beans are also popular.
