Topic tags/keywords: coffee drink wood

Tired of your same old coffee? Try some douglas fir flavoured coffee:

- make coffee
- pour in to mug 80% full
- add sugar, milk/cream as desired, or not
- place block of douglas fir on top of mug for about 5-7 minutes (it must completely cover the top of your mug)
- remove block of douglas fir
- drink coffee – it will have a douglas fir flavour

You can do the above with other blocks of different wood to experiment with flavour.

PS: I have tasted only a few other “wood-coffees”. Walnut is not bad. I only came to know about doing this because several times I had covered my coffee with a wood block in the shop to keep sawdust from getting in my coffee – but then noticed my coffee tasted quite different – sometimes interesting, sometimes not. Different wood blocks = different coffee flavour.

Disclaimer: I am in no way recommending any of the above ideas for you to investigate. For reading entertainment purposes only. Proceed at your own risk. Consult your doctor and psychologist. Do not send cash. Batteries not included.

Back when I could still drink coffee, I eliminated the covering block and let the sawdust flavor the coffee
directly. Did not like the taste, led to the purchase of covered coffee cups. Slightly advanced clumsiness
has prevented the introduction of beverages to the shop so no further testing is available from this scource.

Just eat pecans (or better yet, hazelnuts) while drinking your coffee. That stuff is like crack (NOT like I posted in the other thread, a few minutes ago) for me.

I don’t drink coffee nor do I bring any type of food or drink into my shop so I really don’t know anything about this BUT this posting really got me to laughing, the thought and the way it was written, it was great. Hmmm, I wonder if it would work on hot cocoa while watching TV? Maybe if I put the coaster on top instead of the bottom….

expecting coffee to taste good is like replacing a tape measure with an expensive tool in the hope the easter bunny didnt bust the bubble of the one expecting a candied fig

the addition of wood to the flavour of coffee

is as old as the bean

Use a cinnamon bark coaster on top, then! Just grind a little off…

I drink about two pots of extra strong dark roast coffee a day.
Can’t stand any kind of flavored coffee.
Would expect wood flavored coffee to be just as bad as hazlenut or ammaretto flavored coffee. Yuck!

I know that aromatic cedar or juniper wood in a campfire gives a nice flavor to steaks and other food cooked
over it, but we always kept the lid on the coffee pot, so I do not know if it would help the coffee. Gives
me one more thing to try at hunting camp, if I can remember it that long.
