Peach-Flavored Coffee

C. Hamster Apr 14, 2011 08:00 AM

Ok, at work they are offering "Seasonal" Peach-flavored coffee along with the standard vanilla/hazelnut/mocha, etc.

Is it me? Or does it gross you out a bit ....

    Any "flavored" coffee grosses me out. If you add something to coffee other than milk, it's not really coffee anymore.

      Sounds as disgusting as flavored vodka.

        Somebody here - Caroline? - turned me on to Peach Vodka. Yum.

        Generally I would agree with you, as most flavored coffees are cloying and sickening -- not just peach, but many hazelnut, etc. coffees as well.

        However, in a case of "the exception that proves the rule" (regardless of what you think that phrase means), I direct your attention to the Notting Hill Coffee Roastery in Lewes, DE (near Rehoboth Beach -- a very chowhoundy area). They have an absurd number of flavored coffees, and somehow, they work -- at least the ones I've tried, which include apricot. if you are in the vicinity, check them out.

          Vanilla and hazelnut-flavored coffee grosses me out already; this does so in a slightly increased manner.

            Uh, no. Why can't coffee just taste like ... coffee?

                Ew. No. Coffee beans and peach are NOT meant to be together. Coffee and chocolate, sure. But stone fruit-flavored beans? Ick.
