The Origins and Popularity of French Vanilla Flavored Coffee

But why French? The culinary world has been heavily influenced by the French. In fact, it would trouble you to find an aspect of culinary activity unaffected by the French in name, style, or technique. French Toast, French Fries, French Onion Soup, French Roast, French Bread, and of course French Vanilla. All these foods, dishes and ingredients claim to have some sort of connection to France, but the world has never known a vanilla bean to be grown in Bordeaux or Marseille. So why French?

The French adjective in these foods describe the origin of technique in which they’re made, and not so much the origin in which the food is grown. French Toast is describing the technique of soaking old or stale bread in egg. French Fries refers to the cutting technique batonette, where the chef would cut meat and vegetables into batons of a certain length and thickness. French Vanilla originally referred to the French way of making ice cream, which includes egg yolks and not just cream, milk, and sugar. Achieving a thicker, richer, and more intense mouth feel and vanilla flavor in the finished ice cream.

What Sets French Vanilla Apart From Other Flavored Coffees?

French Vanilla flavored coffee distinguishes itself with its creamy smoothness and luxurious aroma. Unlike plain vanilla, French vanilla has a deeper, more caramelized taste, reminiscent of the custard base from which it takes its name. This complexity makes it a versatile flavor that pairs well with a variety of coffees, from light and fruity African beans to deep, dark South American blends.

How French Vanilla Flavored Coffee is Made

French Vanilla flavored coffee can be made in several ways. The most common method involves adding French Vanilla flavoring to coffee beans before brewing. This flavoring can be natural or synthetic and is added after the beans are roasted but before they are ground. Another method is to infuse the brewed coffee with French Vanilla syrup, allowing for more control over the sweetness and intensity of the flavor.

Some coffee makers prefer to make their French Vanilla flavored coffee by starting with vanilla beans. They infuse the beans in the coffee grounds or mix vanilla extract directly into the brewed coffee. This method offers a more authentic and nuanced flavor but requires a bit more effort.
