Chai Teas come in a variety of forms – whether pure black tea that you can add your own spices to, or pre-made liquids like Oregon Chai and Chai Co, or David Rio’s delicious powdered tea – there’s something for everyone in Canada.

When looking at your options for chai teas, you need to decide how much you want done for you before hand, and how you’ll be preparing it. If you’re a chai-addict (or a chaiddict) you’ll want premium organic black tea and your own cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg. For cafes, the pre-portioned liquids are quick and easy and taste absolutely amazing, while being a bit more expensive, they make up for it with the speed that you can make it. Finally, powdered Chai Teas like David Rio tend to give you the best bang for your buck, with low costs-per-serving and minimal shipping weight because they’re dehydrated.

We’ve put together an exhaustive list of cinnamon products (that we carry anyways) that are available right now to Canadians across the country, see: http://buycoffeecanada.com/blog/tea/best-cinnamon-flavoured-teas

The list is comprised of teas, coffees and syrups that can be added to the coffee or tea, you have lots of choice to suit your needs.

We always recommend the cinnamon syrups to accommodate all the members of your household – you can have regular green tea, black tea or coffee for everyone, and the cinnamon lover can add as much or as little as they want to their own cups without infringing on everyone else. It also leaves a lot of room for alterations – combining multiple syrups and flavours for something that works just right for you.

Brazilian Coffees have a reputation for being a lower quality Arabica bean, but over the past decade (or so) the country as a whole has improved their crops and cultivation, and created a rather good coffee bean. Combined with the huge volume being exported, Brazil coffee beans are some of the least expensive on the market. The priceImage combined with the recently improved flavour makes it a great daily drinker.

Brazil coffee beans are an all-around bean – not too strong on any quality, with a mild body and a pleasant aroma.

Priced at just $11.21 per pound (by the pound), there are also bulk discounts for more than 6 pounds ($10.00/lb) and over 10 pounds ($9.00/lb), making it one of the least expensive coffees around. We offer the option to have the coffee beans roasted to your likes (Medium or Dark) as well as ground specifically for your machine.

Brooklyn Beans K-Cups are now in stock at BuyCoffeeCanada. With 14 new flavours now available to Canadians, a much welcomed addition to the Keurig lineup is already piquing the interest of some of our customers. Our initial trials of the “Cyclone” and “Vanilla Skyline” flavours have showcased both their coffee roasting ability as well as their choice in flavouring and we’re glad to have brought them in. As always, they are available with Free Shipping (conditions apply) to Canada.

Among the flavours available are Brooklyn-themed like the Boardwalk Blend, Brooklyn Bridge and “Fuggedaboutit”, their own interpretation of “Donut Shop”,  a Breakfast Blend, a French Roast offering a couple flavoured coffees. The Hazelnut Coffee, Maple Sleigh and Coney Island Caramel all promise to be flavourful coffees for those who enjoy a little twist in their coffee.

While not an official line from Keurig/Green Mountain, Brooklyn Beans are arguably more interested in providing high quality single-serve coffee to break into the market than the official line would be to stay the market leader. The expiry of the k-cup patents this year opened up a slew of unofficial k-cups from a number of high end brands in the U.S. This new rebirth of the single serving coffee market is proving to be a great thing for consumers with lower prices and greater variety.

In the recent week, two studies have been released indicating that caffeine may decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The results indicate that moderate consumption of coffee (both caffeinated and decaffeinated) may lower diabetes risk in middle-age and younger women. The study clearly indicates that women are the topic, but the data may be applicable to men as well. It’s believed that chemicals other than caffeine in the coffee itself are responsible for the increased resistance.

The coffee studied is primarily drip-coffee, which has a lower sugar content than mixed espresso-based drinks that are sometimes loaded with sugar-based sweeteners and flavours.

While it’s not conclusive for everybody, it is positive research that indicates a positive reason to consume coffee.

Prevaling theories are that coffee beans actually contain compounds that help reduce the oxidative stress on cells, improving insulin sensitivity.

hazelnutsHazelnut is one of the top flavoured coffee options – something about nuts and coffee just go so well together. This becomes particularly apparent around the holiday season (fall and winter), when the temperatures drop and we seek something to warm us up both physically and mentally. Halzenut has a creamy, warming attribute to it that’s ideal for perking you up on a chilly day.

How do you go about flavouring coffee with Hazelnut though? There are a couple options:

  • If you love the taste of hazelnut and can drink it all day, pre-infused hazelnut coffee is a simple choice
  • If you enjoy hazelnut but still want some variety, hazelnut flavoured syrups are a great way to add the flavour only when you want it
  • If convenience is your ultimate concern and you have a Keurig machine, k-cups give you a number of options for hazelnut flavoured coffee
