When I do drink coffee, I want something bold and flavorful, not something you'd typically find in a diner. When I was contacted about trying out Folgers Gourmet Selections coffee, I'll admit I was skeptical. I mean, my late grandparents drank Folgers, and they weren't exactly coffee snobs.
I was sent a huge variety of flavors, specifically10 oz. bags of Toasted Hazelnut, Mocha Swirl, Caramel Drizzle, Vanilla Biscotti, Baked Berry Cobbler, Coconut Cream Pie, as well as K-Cups containing Folger's Classic Roast and Morning Blend coffees.
I'll be honest and say that the flavored coffees were not my favorite, but I am personally not a fan of flavored coffee, no matter what the brand. The ones that most appeal to me are nutty or spicy blends, like hazelnut, mocha and cinnamon, so I can say that I did like the Toasted Hazelnut and Mocha Swirl, mostly as an alternative to dessert.
Folgers Gourmet Selections would complement your Thanksgiving and Christmas desserts. You could play barista and mix up some lovely holiday drinks using these flavored coffees. This Cinnamon Mocha Coffee sounds amazing.
