Love for the Flavors (Vanilla)

Exploring flavor is a part of my life at home and at work. Blending vanilla with coffee felt natural to me as it is one of my favorite baking ingredients. I find vanilla to be a comforting flavor. Its subtle sweetness lends itself well to many things. Depending on the region where the vanilla bean comes from, you can create different flavors. I love baking cookies, and I just get so excited to try out vanilla flavors from different regions to see how the little bit added makes the taste change. My favorite vanilla extract type to use in chocolate chip cookies is from India, because it is sweet and creamy and it enhances the chocolatey-ness. And my favorite vanilla extract to use in molasses cookies is from Indonesia, because the flavors are very complementary – Indonesian vanilla extract tends to be woody and smoky.

    Please bring back the Vanilla Powder that you used to sell in jars. I want to enjoy it at home, too.

    I have always deplored flavored coffees. It was always overkill on a chemically-tasting flavor and the smell alone made me turn tail and get away.I have just finished my first cup of your Vanilla Natural Fusions coffee and it is bar none, the best flavored coffee I've ever experienced. Not cloying, heavily scented or chemically enhanced. I can't wait to try the caramel & cinnamon, they sound intriguing. Brilliant idea guys.

    I would like to know whyyyyyyyyy for years, I can not buy the vanilla powder? There is no other powder like yours sold anywhere, and believe me I have tried. Please sell it again and maybe coconut. You all only sell the coconut in seasons, please tell me why. Does it not sell well? If you do have the powder and or coconut flavor can I buy straight from the company
