Method of Preparation

There are certain ways that can be used to create flavored coffees. In many cases, the ingredient is added immediately after the beans are roasted. The freshly roasted beans are brought in close contact to the flavorings for some period of time. This duration should be sufficient enough for the beans to absorb the taste and aroma. The beans are exposed to certain natural flavors so that they can get the required amount of aroma. Other methods employed would be, to mix some amount of almond syrup with the roasted beans. At times, one can even add freshly ground almond before the preparation of the coffee grounds. This method may not always get the desired intensity of the taste, as it may not get absorbed well into the coffee grounds.

This flavor can be combined with other ingredients for a completely divine experience. Chocolate is one such tempting ingredient that is added to obtain a rich taste.
