Also tried the Mocha with a touch of chocolate and a bit of Whipped Cream flavor to see what would happen.
I have several different ideas for this Mocha flavor to see what works best.
It is wierd though how it all ends up tasting. Things you wouldn't think work sometimes just do, and what sounds good sometimes isn't.
With the coffee not sure what to mix with it. Its tasted pretty bad with everything Ive tried, even just straight. But I think this one is just very potent so Im going to try and blend it straight and really weak (like 2% flavor) and give a bit of time to see what happens.
Nighthawk is the Link where you got your Dark Roast from? I was interested in giving them a try but didn't see it listed there. I do want a good coffee or at least ideas on how to make my own thats satisfying and not just bearable.
The sample packs are a good thing. Wish more offered these since they are good for tersting, or buying bulk at a discounts.
Good Life vapor offers those sample packs too. But they start at 10ml per bottle in size.
Decent prices and they have good juices too. (Also where the Deadly Sin comes from. Gotta keep that stuff around
Sample Packs - Good Life Vapor
We should have a list of suppliers that offer these packs but also have good juices.
The mixing I have been trying here on and off has been going on now for a year since the vendor I had the link for sample packs had started up. I simply took some of the existing blends and dripped a few together to get an idea or two for possibles.
Vaper Garden is where I found a larger variety of coffee, tea, and drink flavors since it is rather to find anyone with tea flavors it seems. This particular vendor has several coffee and mocha while others would have either the coffee or black coffee listed. Most vendors with a large enough selection will have catories for each flavor group. Vaper Garden | ecigarette | ego | eliquid | vapor | ecig | ejuice , Coffee, Teas, Drink flavored ecigarette eliquid
That one even has a Red Bull energy drink flavor in the second page there. When ordering a small bottle of each the Dark Roast and Kona coffee flavors the vendor tossed in a small bottle of their expresso. When going back to order the large bottle of the Dark Roast they tossed in a small grape drink. They carry some disposables and a few eGo express battery, usb charging adapter packs but are mainly an ejuice vendor there.
With CCV flavors I was interested in blending one and now a second menthol flavor with some others simply to see how the second and third flavors would be with menthol present. When mentioning to the owner the latest test with some Pioneer
(Tombstone tobacco blend with menthol added in) still remaining in the tank and mixed with Mellon Twist
(Strawberry/Watermelon) and Timber Frost
(Wintergreen/menthol) and that leading to a form of balanced Strawberry almost Mint type vapor he came out with a brand new one, Boardwalk Bliss
with a blend of orange, tangerine, sweet cherry, and black cherry flavors with a Koolada mix(makes a flavor taste like you have an ice cold drink with ice cubes in it).
I haven't gotten into the DIY process of ordering the base, menthol, and other flavorings with or without nicotine you can buy separately for making up any of my own custom blends. Back when CCV was first starting up and I was still seeing the last carton or so I mentioned the lack of the tobacco taste being a possible factor for not being able to vape the menthol flavors he first had out which was Artic Ice
(semi-sweet Peppermint with menthol), and Avalanche
(A blend of menthols) to be followed afterwards with first Cafe Mint
(Peppermint Cappuccino with menthol) and one other being a Banana/Caramel blend with menthol Polar Ape
Of course when going to order the 7 bottle sampler the menthol person would have all these covered since presently there are only the 7 with menthol in them. But when ordering as with most vendors that brew their own stuff at least you can specify either no menthol or may even be able to see menthol added in if you ask for that. This is mainly seen with those who do actually blend and mix up their own for online sales mainly over the prepackaged or already bottled up stuff at a local vape shop since those people have plenty of time still before stuff gets shipped out.
A list of vendors who offer sample packs certainly wouldn't hurt while I have found while ordering hardwares many will often toss in a small bottle of what they carry or you have the option to pick and choose a flavor or two depending on what the hardware is like a variable box mod. Some toss in actual candy like a tiny bag of Gummy Bear or lately one toss a lollipop in on the first order. That happened to be at one who's owner belongs to one of the smoke free advocacy groups I noticed while ordering.
