Cost Plus World Market now selling San Francisco-based Maverick's Coffee Company absinthe flavored coffee. The three other new flavors are bourbon, chipotle and clove.

That's pretty funny!

Absinthe – Absinthe that’s legal to drink. The new absinthe-flavored coffee treats the drinker to the authentic flavor of this mythic liqueur with hints of fennel, wormwood, lemon balm, and licorice. Its wonderful citrus notes pair nicely with a variety of different foods.


Or, I could some real absinthe to my coffee! I think the blanche works a little better than the verte. :cheers:

Hmmm, I may have to try that . . . and I have some blanche on the way!

Just a dash of absinthe in black coffee is a delight. Jules prefers a little absinthe in her herbal teas which really makes sense.

I do the same thing since she suggested it a few years ago. Mighty fine on a weekend morning.
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

2-4 drops on a liter of water, makes a big difference.

1/2 to 3/4 ounce in a cup of tea is right pleasant.

A drop is just a tear of joy.

Now I'm going to have to try it in tea, sounds like it would be amazing.

The type of tea and brand of absinthe makes a difference. I tried some Leopold Bro's absinthe verte in some chamomile tea a few months ago and there were some pretty heavy orange flavors coming though.

When I could drink coffee I occasionally sweetened it with anise syrup and found it to be quite tasty. This thread reminds me of hot chocolate and green chartreuse. I only tried that once or twice, but my brother loved it.

There was a local coffee shop that carried anise syrup and I flavored my "Dirty Chai" with it... Until they stopped carrying it as I was the only one who would order it.

This is seriously one of those Homer-esque moments of "Doh!" for me.

Yes, it would! Anyone have any ideas for the formulation?
(If it doesn't already exist, that is...)

(And absinthe with the right herbal tea can be fantastic)
I think, therefore I am. Or am I over-thinking? I am thinking it over...

I put a few drops of the stuff I won't drink in my coffee...pretty good. Thanks for the idea. Now in a year or two
the Grande Absente, Versinthe and Pernod will be less full by an inch or so, without anyone suffering for it.W

I haven't loved everything they make, but most of their products aren't that bad.

I polished off an entire bottle of La Fée by adding it to coffee.

Back in the pterodactyline Pre-Breaux Age, I ordered a starter package consisting of François Guy, several Un Emiles, an outrageously priced bottle of no-name Swissy-hoo-hah from Betty, and La Fée.
The label...... Posted Image
.....turned out to be the best thing about La Fée! But I couldn't bring myself to pour a bottle of absinthe down the sink.

Then a forumite suggested adding it to coffee. I did, and it wasn't bad. And that's how I ended up finishing the bottle.

Makes sense. Italians "correct" their espresso with Sambuca, and I bet the French have their own coffee/anise combos. Coffee and anise are a good team. :)

They know how to tag-team the tastebuds. I can't say for La Fee, but I polished off tje better part of a bottle of NuPernod mixed with rootbeer many years ago. Pernot and root beer would probably be pretty amazing too.

Recent gift from a relative who knows I love absinthe..... thought I had to share even though the marketing for this coffee aims at perpetuating the stereotype that absinthe makes you trip out and party with a green fairy...

Undistilled wormwood? Yikes.

A splash of a decent verte might work better.

I know Leopold's does, but any verte added to a non pre-ground would almost certainly eclipse that stuff.

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?
