Flavored Coffee - Yay or Nay?

In my opinion, there are two kinds of people in the world: those who like flavored coffee, and pinheaded losers who are WRONG, WRONG, WRONG!



Actually, I know a lot of people who don't like flavored coffee. They like coffee, sure, but they abstain from anything with flavors or syrups in it. Don't get me wrong, I love regular coffee as well... but every once in a while, give me Holiday Eggnog, or Hazelnut, or Irish Cream, or Butter Rum.

Today's coffee: Holiday Peppermint. Smells just like a York Peppermint Patty.

So what do you think? If you like coffee, do you also like flavored coffee? If so, what flavors do you like? If not, why not?

I don't drink much coffee, but when I do I prefer either a mocha flavored (if it's a real coffee shop) or to hit it with some French Vanilla creamer.

Well, if you like both, you would vote "Yes". If this was a poll. Which it's not. Cause I'm a big goofus.

(Scurries off to try and make this a poll -- curses! Can't add that in. Ah, well.)

No way. I don't even taint mine with cream. Black with sugar.

If you added up all the coffee I've drunk in my entire life, it wouldn't fill a teacup, so NAY.

At coffee places around here, I generally get some flavoring in my coffee. That's because coffee around here sucks. It's really an entirely different drink when you get a Mocha or a Caramel Frappuccino.

In Italy or at home, I drink the good stuff (espresso or cappuccino) without flavoring... just a little sugar.

In a diner, I'll get the cheap house coffee water with a little cream and sugar, and I don't have a big problem with it. I just don't consider it the same type of drink.

Coffee is a flavor already. I drink mine black. I don't mind other people putting extra flavors in their coffee, though I understand there are certain uppity types who label people who prefer straight black coffee "pinheaded losers". Which is fine by me, since black coffee drinkers wipe the floor with flavored-coffee-drinking wussies.

Black, with a little sugar for me.

I read from an article that flavored coffee is made to cover the bad taste of cheap coffee. But the article only mention flavored instant coffee so this might not be the case.

I only like flavored decaf. I know I'm getting old because I can't drink regular coffee after 5 or 6PM.

Flavored coffee is for people that don't like the flavor of coffee - or those who have only had bad coffee (like Starbucks)

Wouldn't steamed milk make it unpure and tainted?

Coffee, chocolate, sugar, milk. Otherwise, just coffee please.

Someone once tried to get me to try a MINT coffee. EEEWW!

hazelnut I can stand, and cinnamon.

True but in this case I was speaking about adding flavorings.

Starucks actually has a prettty good selection of coffee beans, quite a bit of variety.
