Chocolate, also known as mocha when added to coffee, ranks as one of the top favorites of coffee lovers every where. What’s not to love? Chocolate flavoured coffee is a coffee and chocolate lovers dream come true.

French Vanilla is another top favorite. This luscious blend of smooth cream and delightful vanilla is a very close second only to the many variations of the chocolate flavours. For many folks it is this tasty coffee flavour that ranks first among coffee flavours.
Gotta love Espresso! This highly concentrated form of coffee is a big favorite in Europe. Served in small cups, this type of coffee is deep, dark, and strong. For many Europeans this is the only way to get that first caffeine buzz of the day to get them up and going, and going, and going.
Hazelnut is another one of the fabulously delicious, wonderful blends of coffee that is becoming a fast favorite of coffee drinkers. With hazelnut’s smooth and creamy taste many folks find this coffee’s mellow and lightly sweet flavour a great morning coffee as well as a good afternoon pick me up.
For all you almond lovers out there there is the delicious Amaretto flavoured coffees. This coffee tastes like the Italian liqueur of the same name, hence the draw for many people who like to add this tasty liqueur to an after dinner cup of coffee. Amaretto, yum!
Dark Roast is another favorite blend of coffee. Coffee beans are roasted to a dark richness that brings out the depth and flavour of the coffee bean itself. The rich after taste and high caffeine content of this coffee blend also make it a favorite for serving in restaurants as a dinner coffee.
Kona blend coffees are light on the acid content with just a slight citrus-y flavour that makes them great for adding any of a number of the flavoured syrups designed just for coffee. Kona’s very mellow flavour also makes it a favorite breakfast coffee.
