There truly is no better way to start your day than with a warm mug of your favorite flavored coffee. Thanks to the endless options, there’s a perfect flavor for every palate.\n\nFlavored Coffee has a Spicy History\n\nThe history of flavored coffee began when people used cinnamon, cardamom, and pepper to flavor their coffee. These ingredients were part of the spice trade going directly through the main coffee-growing areas of Africa. Using whatever spices they could get their hands on, they began to experiment and create unique flavors.\n\nNot only are cinnamon, cardamom, and pepper excellent tasting additives to coffee, but they are also all-natural preservatives. As a result, these spices are still used today in flavored coffee and cooking and baking. \nCoffee chains worldwide add sweeteners, flavored creamers, syrups, and whipped cream to their coffee drinks after they are made. While many enjoy this excessive sweetening strategy, it masks the flavor of low-quality coffee beans. A true coffee lover knows this isn’t the way to add flavor to your cup!\nA Cup of Coffee That Stands Alone\nWhen looking for a top-notch cup of coffee, find one that can stand alone without any artificial sweeteners. High-quality coffee beans are the key to an excellent cup that will have you wanting more. Additional flavoring is welcome if that’s your preference, but the high-quality coffee beans—or lack thereof—will make or break your experience.\nFlavored coffee provides an alternative to overly sweet and sugary options. The integrity of the natural coffee bean is preserved with an added sweet or savory bonus during the roasting process. While additional sweeteners are added, a cup of coffee that can stand on its own before anything is added is the coffee you want in your cup!\nThe Most Popular Natural Coffee Additives\nIt’s no secret that natural flavorings in coffee have been around for centuries. A lot of them were created through trial and error.\nSome of the most popular natural flavoring choices were: \n\n\nCinnamon\nPepper\nCardamom\nCloves\nNutmeg\nStar Anise\n\nThese flavors allowed people to bring a level of sweetness, boldness, and flavor to their morning cup of coffee!\nHow is Coffee Flavored?\nSo how do you tell if your flavored coffee is high-quality? The best-flavored coffee only uses natural flavors. Natural flavors are extracted from any natural source and then added to the coffee beans at varying flavor strengths. Other ways to flavor coffee beans include flavor oils or dry flavoring. \n2 Ways to Flavor Coffee Beans\n\nFlavor Oils\nDry Flavoring\n\nUsing flavor oils is a method where coffee beans have the oil sprayed over them while they are in a large pot. The oil is added slowly and continuously mixed to ensure each coffee bean is evenly saturated.\nDry flavoring is achieved by adding a flavored powder to the coffee beans. They’re mixed and evenly spread to ensure consistent flavor strength in every batch.\nWhile larger batches use these methods often, Stone Street focuses on smaller batches to ensure the products are always consistent in taste and tone. \nHow to Choose the Right Flavor Strength\n\nIt isn’t always easy to know which flavor strength would be best for your coffee, and much of it is trial and error. We recommend starting out with a 1:18 ratio and slowly increasing your flavor strength until you find the perfect balance. While some like their flavor strength to be intense in taste and aroma, others prefer a lighter flavor strength allowing just a hint of the flavor without taking away from the original coffee taste.\nIf you are right in between, a medium flavor strength will most likely hit the spot every time! Be sure to test it out first, as each different coffee flavor strength won’t be the same. For example, medium flavor strength might be your ideal choice for our Blueberry Cobbler coffee, while a light flavor strength for our Southern Pecan coffee may be your preference.\nOur top 5 flavored coffee choices include:\n\nSouthern Pecan\nPumpkin Spice\nCinnamon Swirl\nHazelnut Supreme\nBlueberry Cobbler \n\n\nOur Charming Southern Pecan Flavored Coffee\n\nFeeling homesick and missing the comfort and smell of home?

There are over 500 different varieties of pecan trees, each producing its own unique flavor, texture, size, color, and shape of pecans.\nThe word pecan is translated to something which requires a stone to crack, which if you’ve cracked a pecan, you know how literal that translation is.

Before pumpkin spice lattes rose in popularity, pumpkin spice referred to a blend of spices combining cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, and cloves. This spice blend has long been a part of the American baking tradition.\nCenturies later, spice manufacturing companies created a pumpkin pie spice, essentially blending these altogether, allowing bakers to buy just one instead of all of them separately. As a result, pumpkin spice has been a cultural icon, being added to lattes to create one of the most popular seasonal drinks of all time. \nWhy Pumpkin Spice?\nPumpkin spice is full of antioxidants that can help keep your blog sugar under control and reduce your chance of developing diabetes!

However, people now enjoy these all year round as a household favorite, complete with icing on top to sweeten the dish during breakfast! \nWhy Cinnamon?\n\n \nCinnamon is a spice derived from the inner bark of several tree species.

At the time, they were referred to as “filberts” instead of hazelnuts. However, in 1989 the Oregon Filbert Commission decided to emphasize calling them “hazelnuts” instead of “filberts.” \nBut why did Oregon have the authority to make such a big decision in the first place? Great question! It’s because they grow 99% of the hazelnuts in the United States of America. In addition, they export at least half of their hazelnut crop to Europe and Asia. However, Turkey is the largest producer of hazelnuts worldwide, producing an impressive 70%.\nHazelnut Horticulture\nHazelnuts are grown on compact trees that begin producing this buttery, sweet nut in just a few years!
