Coffee with Excess Flavor, Please.

As I mentioned a few posts back, I've started a love affair with coffee. It's rather funny that almost a year ago my husband gave me a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas even though I didn't drink coffee at all then. It's like Pat knew me better than I knew myself because I feel like I couldn't live without it now.

I've tried lots of awesome flavors of coffee recently. I am a flavor junkie; I love sauces, seasoning, or any way to get an extra kick of flavor. Sometimes I probably over do it. With my coffee I sometimes go as far as putting flavored coffee-mate in my flavored coffee, but don't worry, I make sure the flavors coordinate well. You have to be careful not to overwhelm the flavor of the coffee, but it is rather fun to test out all the different combinations. After lots and lots of trials, I've found a few flavored coffees that I rather enjoy. So if anyone has a Keurig, and I highly recommend it as a coffee maker, here are some great Kcups to try.

Green Mountain Southern Pecan--I wasn't sure I'd be a big fan of this flavor. While I have no problem with pecans, I wouldn't really say I love them. However, I LOVE this coffee. It is one of my absolute favorites. This coffee has a yummy sweetness without being too sweet. This is a flavor that I will buy over and over again.

Timothy's German Chocolate Cake--I think I may brew this for the smell alone--chocolate and coconut yumminess. The flavor blends well with the coffee and doesn't overpower the stronger coffee taste. I add a bit of creamer and it's a little slice of dessert without the calories.
Green Mountain Mocha Nut Fudge--It's like having a piece of fudge, without the heaviness you get from the actual candy. I think this one is a very rich flavor. It is perfect for the days when you feel like you want to indulge.
(And right now I'm really enjoying my chocolate flavored coffees with some peppermint-mocha coffee-mate. It's like having a thin-mint cookie dunked in your coffee)

Those are my favorite Kcups right now. Clearly, I like the combination of sweet and bitter that flavored coffee lends. What are your favorite coffees?
