hello im trying to make a basic coffee with sugar and hazelnut creamer recipe. tried looking around but couldnt find much that helped me. i was thinking of using TPA espresso as the base of it but i dont know much about the coffee flavorings either. if anyone could shed some light or point me in the right direction or just share thoughts i would really appreciate it!!! thank you for your time and have a nice day!!!
p.s. im pretty new to mixing, been doing it for awhile but i usually just use other people recipes and try my best to learn from those. thanks again!!!
I too find FA dark bean overpowering but at very low like 0.08%( 1drop per 30ml) it does add to a mix. @Syntax_Vaper i would look into get MF coffee it is much more subtle than FA but still strong usage 0.25% and always let coffee mixes steep 3 weeks or more. For the cream i highly recommend:
LB fresh cream 0.5-1.0%
LB cream 0.5-1.0%
NV cream 0.5%
Ooo milky undertone 1.5-2.5%
RF SC milk 0.25-0.5%
FLV milk 0.08-0.17%
A combination of 3 or 4 of these or even all 6 will yield an authentic coffee cream. If you can only get one get the ooo milky undertone. As far as hazlenut goes i havent had much luck but i hear FW and RF are both great…
FA Dark Bean (Coffee Espresso) will give you a rich, dark, bold coffee taste but it is very strong and needs to be used at very low %s, especially until you get to know what it tastes like and how you want it.
If you’re just getting into coffees, I’d strongly suggest either FA Booster (Tiramisu) or Inawera’s Tiramisu. I have Inawera’s but from what I’ve gleaned they’re similar enough that either one will work. Tiramisu is my new favorite coffee flavor because it’s easy to use and plays really well with other flavors.
I would agree with this. I never liked FA Espresso or Tiramisu when I bought them , been in my cupboard for a very long time, but as tastes change I have got really into them, though they are both a bit powdery and very strong, need to be mixed well with other stuff. Also FA UP is excellent, to me it tastes like what I originally hoped Tiramisu would taste like, though I find it a bit of a coil clogger which is unusual for a FA concentrate.
Medicine Flower do a very good coffee though I find it needs a long steep and OSDIY Lotta Latte is very good for a sweet creamy latte, by far the best of there concentrates I have tried.
in my way of thinking would be like:
TFA Espresso as a base… with Some TPA HAzernut…
white i would add a little bit of caramel (TFA) and some Chocolate (Double Chocolate of TFA or CAP) … while using some Sweetener since none of the above is sweet…
i would go like
TFA Espresso 4-5%
TFA Hazelnut 4-5%
TFA CAramel 3%
Cap New Double Chocolate 3%
TFA Sweeterner 0-5-1.5%
Espresso for the coffee flavor… and hazelnut and the rest to make it kinda more creamy and more rounded in general… Chocolate will help you to connect the Coffee and Hazelnut in a better way while it adds some flavor tunes in the middle of both flavors… while TFA caramel adds also a Creamy Sensation too… you could optionally add TFA VAnilla Swirl or TFA Sweet Cream at like 3% but this is completely optional…
I’ll have to give OSDIY Lotta Latte a shot. So far I’ve had a good experience with them and their flavors. I’ve only tried the Sweet Tea but I’ve heard good things about Lucky Shot and the Blue Raz Slush and the Root Beer (I think).
