The Flavor Rundown: Natural vs. Artificial Coffee Flavors

Why The Bean Coffee Company Only Chooses All Natural!

Whether you are a hazelnut or french vanilla coffee lover or simply love flavored coffee, it is important to understand what goes into the production of what you are drinking. Many of us are familiar with the phrase “made with artificial flavoring,” but have you ever stopped to wonder what those words actually mean?

The Truth Behind Artificially Flavored Coffee

Unfortunately, many coffee drinkers remain in the dark about artificially flavored coffee. Usually containing  propylene glycol, the popular coffee flavoring compound is the same ingredient in antifreeze… Yikes!  It is also common for roasters to use artificial flavoring to cover up low-grade Robusta coffee beans, which are highly acidic and bitter-tasting. This is why The Bean steers clear from artificial and always uses Arabica beans.

We Use Natural and Certified Organic Coffee Flavors

Whether you prefer your beans whole or freshly ground, The Bean’s coffee flavors are certified organic and natural by the non-profit organization Certified California Organic Farmers (CCOF). Never going under any sort of synthetic processing, we extract our natural flavors from real vanilla, chocolate, nuts, berries, and spices. You can anticipate your coffee to taste precisely where it comes from!

Flavor additives tend to be stronger in aroma than taste, so your nose will be reaping the benefits. In Oceanside, CA, sweet smells fill The Bean’s warehouse as flavors are carefully mixed in with the coffee. 

100% organic and all-natural, The Bean specializes in crafting premium coffee flavors that are better for you and the environment. Check out our wide selection of flavored coffee, including Milky Way, Mocha Java, and our infamous Pumpkin Spice!
