I really enjoy coffee.  Both my parents and all 4 of my grandparents were coffee drinkers.  I began drinking coffee when I was 18.

When I lived with my 1st partner (who was 9 years older than me) we drank Green Mountain Coffee because my then partner believed their Arabica coffee was the purest.  We had no local source for obtaining Green Mountain Coffee so he had it shipped to the house via UPS.

Sometime after that I began to try and enjoy flavored coffees.  Hazelnut and French vanilla were probably among the 1st ones I tried and enjoyed.  I remember having Southern Pecan flavored coffee at a B&B, and I also remember getting a 'holiday blend' with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves as a Christmas gift years ago, which I also enjoyed.

Spouse & I enjoy flavored coffees so much that we don't even buy 'regular' coffee anymore.  Every night I set up the coffeemaker so the pot of aromatic flavored coffee is waiting for us in the morning. 

Nowadays there are lots more new flavors, and its not necessary to order your coffee to be shipped to you.  We get flavored coffees at our local grocery stores, HomeGoods, Marshalls, and Dunkin Donuts.

Recently enjoyed flavors include Hazelnut, French Vanilla, Blueberry Muffin, Pumpkin Spice, Jelly Donut, Chocolate Macadamia Nut, Glazed Chocolate Donut, Vanilla Nut, Holiday Blend, and Mint Chocolate Chip.  The only flavored coffee I've tried and didn't like was Buttered Rum.

Do you like flavored coffee??

I used to, but tired of it quickly.

now it's plain cawfee (philly pronunciation) with a touch of sugar-free french vanilla creamer.
