Wine and cigars are often matched in a way so that the two can bring out the best flavours in each other, making way for a sublime experience. The idea behind it works in much the same way while trying to match coffee with vaping as well. However, unlike wine and cigar combinations which are best suited for late evenings, complementing coffee and vaping combos are ideal for lazy mornings and early evenings.
Why Coffee and Vaping Work So Well Together
Coffee and nicotine are both CNS stimulants which provide us with an instant dose of functional energy. It is true that both substances do have the potential to be abused, but there is ample evidence to suggest that tactical and limited use of caffeine-nicotine combos can act as a powerful productivity booster as well. What vaping pens do is that they add a few more advantages to the well-established combination:
- Vaping liquids add a much larger variety of flavours to the caffeine-nicotine combination
- Sub ohm vaping pens can simultaneously intensify the effects of both the nicotine and the chosen flavour
- The thick plumes of lingering vapour released from a sub ohm vaping pen make the flavour and the overall experience last longer
Use Sub Ohm Vaping Pens for Coffee – Vaping Combos
If you wish to enjoy the complementary perfection of balancing the right cup of coffee with the right vaping flavour, you will need a sub ohm vaping pen, aka a sub ohm vaporiser. Sub ohm vaping coils will invariably have a <1 ohm rating for resistance, which means that each hit from the vaporiser will have more nicotine and flavour in it. On top of that, sub ohm vape pens produce a lot more vapour than the average vaporisers. Not that above ohm vape pens are ineffective by any means, but sub ohm vaping pens do make the entire experience a lot more intense and enjoyable.
Be Careful with Your Choice of Location
As AquaVape explains in their post on sub ohm vaping etiquettes, it is of the utmost importance to be selective with your choice of location. Being one of the leading providers for all types of vaping devices and flavoured e-liquids in UK, the experts at AquaVape really know what they are talking about. If you are inconsiderate about your surroundings while vaping, this can make your vaping habits an unpleasant experience for the people around you, which is especially true after covid-19. This can and most likely will simultaneously ruin the whole point of enjoying a perfect coffee and vaping match. Follow their suggested set of vaping etiquettes to avoid any such unpleasantries, and now that we have everything else ready, it is time to get started with our vaping and coffee pairing suggestions.
Espresso and Tropical Berries
This strong cup of Italian coffee can use some condensed milk in it to really bring out the rich flavours, provided that you are not lactose intolerant. Due to the strength and taste of caffeine being the hallmark of a good cup of espresso, we will opt for one of the lighter, fruity e-liquids for this one.
Some say pineapple and lime go well, but the tangy flavour may not be an ideal mix for most. You will likely enjoy your strong cup of morning coffee better with a tropical berry flavour in the vape pen. Strawberry, raspberry and Jamaican cherry are each excellent choices for pairing with espresso. Understand that this is a highly stimulating combination which works best when you need energy for the day ahead. Limit the pairing to early evenings at the latest.
Cappuccino and Vanilla
Matching a cup of cappuccino with a vanilla flavoured vape pen is one of the oldest and easiest pairings in the proverbial book. The effects are pleasantly stimulating, making it perfect for your morning cup of coffee. During the evenings, sprinkle a bit of chocolate powder on your creamy cup to add an extra layer of flavour to the experience.
Filter Coffee and Chocolate
The coarse ground beans are brewed for a long time in relatively lower temperatures than most other types of coffee. As a result, filter coffee made from quality beans, with the care it requires, can make for a heavenly cup. Keep it black and pair it with a chocolate flavoured e-liquid to have an experience like no other. It’s a perfect combination of stimulation and happiness, ideal for a morning wakeup call or an evening break.
Get started with the suggestions on this list, but do not feel shy about experimenting a bit later either. As you become more experienced by trying new good and bad combinations, you should be able to create your own custom hit pairs for those lucrative coffee and vaping breaks soon after.
