Opinion: Best Coffee Flavor Concentrate?

There's so many of them. What are the favorites? Not looking for anything exotic. Just your basic coffee. If they had a Dunkin Donuts coffee flavor that would be ideal.

Definitely NOT looking for anything that tastes like Starbucks.

Edit: Not looking for a recipe but for a coffee flavor concentrate.

  • Dark Bean Espresso (FA) ... unequivocally the one and only. At 0.5% it will approximate Dunkin Donuts. 1% and over will be Starbuck-ish.
  • Mexican Liqueur (TFA) ... honorable mention. Medium-roast, Columbian coffee at 2% with a strong hint of chocolate.
  • Espresso Flavour (TFA) ... may be what you are looking for ... very weak 'blonde' coffee.

I wound up getting two base coffees - non bitter. I specifically didn't want espresso or cappuccino as I'm going for coffee and not those flavors. Plus I already have those.

+1 for FlavourArt Coffee Espresso at 3% or lower.

I'm pretty sure I have like 90% of all coffee flavor concentrates out :facepalm:. With that being said my favorite 2 so far are SC (Chinese Company) Cappuccino and Purilium Caramel Coffee w/ Sweet Milk. SC Cappuccino isn't cappuccino to me its got a mild roasted coffee taste and a very very slight bitter note, really been my go to coffee more than the others. The Purilium coffee is coffee loaded with creamer and very mild caramel notes, has 0 bitterness (I like a little coffee with my cream and sugar :coffee:.


Personally I have been working on perfecting a coffee recipe (for me) since I started DIY.

We make something called 'Americano' which has two coffee's, Dark Bean (coffee espresso) FA @ 0.3 ml and a Tiramiso @ 0.9 with two creams
Bavarian Cream (CAP) 0.9 ml and Whipped Cream (TFA) 0.15 ml (in a 30 ml bottle). It's quite popular. I nearly called it BCNS, (Black Coffee No Sugar) but decided that might be too simplistic for the peone palates.

Trying to make a coffee and doughnut flavor. I went 6/6% on each, but I think the coffee was too strong. Dropped down to 9/3 and am waiting. Neither has steeped yet; I just knew as soon as I mixed it that I had too much coffee in there. I put a couple of other ingredients - nuts, cream, things like that, to get it up to 20%.

Sounds good. I can't mix a coffee I really like. Sadly, i don't have the whipped cream. So, I'll have to wait until I get some.

I use mostly Wonder Flavors Brazilian Coffee, never at more than 1%. It's plenty strong enough for me at an average of 0.85%.

It's just a strong black coffee, so very versatile.
 
I don't know about a concentrate, but the Nespresso Ethiopia capsules (OriginalLine), OMG, I'm addicted. These are the best Nespresso espresso pods I've ever tried. I think this quarantine made me addicted to coffee, and it's not a surprise because my day usually starts with a cup of coffee, and I usually drink two or three more until noon. I don't drink after, because I can't sleep at night if I do, so I limit myself. I've never tried a coffee concentrate though, but why would you use a coffee concentrate if a machine makes the coffee taste a lot better?

Welcome to Vaping Underground, Riley!

This isn't quite the right thread for Coffee Makers, but if you vape, you're home now!

So far I like Sweet Coffee SSA and Brazilian Coffee WF together. I did buy some FA Up to try too. I have a mocha that I am getting close with, but the coffee and nuts need more work to taste yummy.

I'm liking pairing SC cappuccino with VT coffee liqueur here lately. SSA mocca is pretty good with a couple drops of MF dark chocolate and a cream of of your choice. I tend to reach for hangsen cream &/ dulce de leche with coffee vapes.

Best coffee flavor I have had was a natural extraction I did myself with Cafe Pillon and sweetened with sucrolous. It took time and filtering it was tricky but it was the best coffee flavor I have used.
