7 Best Flavoured Coffees

Although we hate to admit it, regular coffee can sometimes be a bit boring and bland, especially when you’re drinking it day in, day out.

There is a possibility you may not even like coffee but could still do with the effects it brings. Flavoured coffees are growing in popularity among those who want the occasional change or prefer for their coffee to not actually have the taste of coffee.

We have picked out five of the best options for you, all packed with taste and offering a huge variety of flavours:

The Best Flavoured Coffees

1.
Surprise me! Beanies Flavoured Coffee

Specifications

  • Type: Instant
  • Flavours Available: Chocolate Orange, Irish Cream, Hazelnut, Toffee, Cinnamon, Vanilla
  • Size: 6 x 50g

Sometimes, you may want to change the flavour up and not have the same day in day out. Or, you may want an introduction to the world of flavoured coffee but have no idea where to start.

Beanies are one of the biggest names in flavoured coffee, and this little selection of six varieties has a good range of options. It is instant, so available for all to use without a machine.

Whether you like a nutty or rich flavour or prefer the sweetest hot drinks possible, there should be one which catches your eye. And we will bet that there will be at least one which becomes a favourite.

They are all available to buy individually, and in multi-packs of the same flavour if you think you will get a lot of use out of them.

Reasons to Buy

  • Choice
  • Bold flavour without being sickly

Reasons to Avoid

  • Instant – unsuitable for machines

2.
True Start Cold Brew Coffee Vanilla Coconut

Specifications

  • Type: Cold Brew Can
  • Flavours Available: Vanilla, Chilli Chocolate
  • Size: 250ml

No sugar. No calories. Yet packed full of flavour.

For all you cold brew fans out there, this is something worth trying. The vanilla flavouring is just right, which is also perfect for anyone who wants to get into cold brew but needs edging in with a flavour which is a bit more familiar.

It is smooth and refreshing, made with 100% Arabica beans which are already quite fruity naturally. You can add ice, or your favourite milk of choice, and just give it a shake for the nitro effect.

Reasons to Buy

  • Ready made
  • Subtle yet detectable flavour

Reasons to Avoid

  • Would be cheaper to make your own

3.
Gurmans Flavoured Coffee

Specifications

  • Type: Ground
  • Flavours Available: Chocolate, Amaretto, Banana, Irish Cream, Jamaican Rum, Maple Syrup, Nuts, Tiramisu
  • Size: 125g

If you want a real luxurious treat, this gourmet coffee from Gurmans is sure to hit the spot. It is 100% pure Arabica coffee, so even though the flavour is slightly different, the quality is still very much there.

There are a few more unique flavour options available here that you can’t really find elsewhere. The banana is great despite not being an obvious choice. The taste of each is there when you drink it, but also leaves a very nice aftertaste and makes the overall coffee very mellow.

The smell of each is also fabulous, which only adds to the coffee drinking experience.

So pop the coffee machine on, get the cups out and cut a slice of cake for the perfect afternoon treat.

Reasons to Buy

  • Coffee is strong
  • Noticeable but mellow taste

Reasons to Avoid

  • Some flavours are a bit more accurate than others

4.
Little’s Instant Flavoured Coffee 3 Jar Set

Specifications

  • Type: Ground
  • Size: 3 x 50g
  • Flavours Available: Irish Cream, Havana Rum & Cafe Amaretto

Featuring Irish Cream, Havana Rum & Cafe Amaretto flavours for anyone who loves a more tipple-style coffee after a meal, these jars of instant coffee are surprisingly very flavourful.

They come in nice jars, and give an intense flavour of coffee mixed with these drinks despite being out of a jar. It is a great price to say you get three jars, and the vintage labelling would mean they are an ideal gift for any coffee lovers.

Reasons to Buy

  • Nicely packaged
  • Flavour is quite intense

Reasons to Avoid

  • More for after dinner than morning wake ups

5.
Gourmesso 120 Nespresso Compatible Coffee Capsules

Specifications

  • Type: Pod
  • Flavours Available: Vanilla, Almond, Caramel, Chocolate, Hazelnut, Coconut
  • Size: 120 Pods

This selection pack is for those of you who own a pod machine. There are six flavours included, so 20 of each, so it is a nice little starter pack for anybody who wants an introduction to the world of flavoured coffee but is limited in their type to use.

As a bonus, they will work with the Original Line of Nespresso machines, which is a type that can often be hard to buy non-branded pods for.

Pod machines are a little bit notorious for not offering the strongest coffee, and therefore these aren’t the most flavourful essences, but the hint is still there which will please anyone who doesn’t like strong aromas or an overactive brain.

Reasons to Buy

  • We love the pod idea

Reasons to Avoid

  • Weak coffee (most pods are)

6.
Whittard’s Flavoured Coffee Stacking Tin

Specifications

  • Type: Ground
  • Flavours: Gingerbread, Maple Syrup, Cinammon
  • Size: 3 x 85g

We love a good variety pack here at Daily Espresso, so you can try different flavours and eventually find a standout.

This tin has Gingerbread, Maple Syrup and Cinnamon flavoured coffee, which is perfect for these cooler months which are feeling a bit more festive. The Gingerbread coffee from Whittard’s is one of their bestsellers, and the other two options are new but going to be just as popular.

It is Omni grind, which is suitable for most brewing equipment and coffee machines. Plus, it can be drunk hot, cold or iced. Just in case you’re not ready to let go of your cooler coffee yet.

Reasons to Buy

  • Festive flavours
  • Come in reusable tins

Reasons to Avoid

  • Quite a fine grind so best for Mokas or Cafetieres

7.
Whittard’s Hazelnut Flavour Ground Coffee

Specifications

  • Type: Ground
  • Flavours Available: Truffle, Hazelnut, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, Amaretto

Hazelnut coffee is all the rage right now, and this one is perfectly balanced between sweet and soothing.

For something more luxurious, add a dash of syrup, top with thickly foamed milk and a sprinkle of chocolate powder. Or, serve as the French do with a classic café noisette. In omni-grind, it is great for most coffee machines but particularly in a manual method, where the flavour will shine through too.

Reasons to Buy

  • Can drink however you wish
  • Full flavour

Reasons to Avoid

  • Not for anyone who just wants a hint
