    I've never had a real cappuccino, but I do like coffee with extras. I've tried Capella and Flavour Art cappuccino flavors, and wasn't very happy with them. I do like most of the other flavors that I got from those brands, though.

    I'm another who likes TFA caramel cappuccino. Not being a fan of black coffee, I doctor it with TFA Bavarian cream and EM. My latest, favorite recipe for it is pretty simple:

    For 10ml batch:

    1 drop TFA Caramel Cappuccino
    7 drops TFA Bavarian Cream
    3 drops TFA Ethyl Maltol

    Sometimes I add a drop or two of cinnamon flavoring.

    I guess i have only one simple question....

    When everyone says "drop"...what is the qualifying factor?
    Use her small glass droppers...or the medium pipette...the super small pipette?!?!?!?

    The variances in drop size could be a huge factor....a lil help would be nice..

    Thx....

    That's an interesting question. There are so many vendors who sell their flavors, many of whom repackage them in whatever bottles that they happen to buy, there is bound to be a difference in drop sizes even among similar bottles.

    I've never bought directly from The Flavor Apprentice. My Caramel Cappuccino flavoring was bought from Good Prophets' DIY flavoring line. The bottle that it's in is here. Mad Vapes and several other places also sell those bottles with the same droppers. The dropper tip on those bottles has a bigger ID than many do. The 10ml bottles that I have gotten from several vendors have a more restricted, leak-proof orifice, shown here.

    I'd estimate that the drop size is 1.5 times that of the more restricted one, on the dropper that mine has. I'd guess that it would be quite a bit smaller than what a glass dropper or pipette would produce, though.

    I should add that the 1 drop in my previous post is an estimate for those that have the full-strength flavoring. I cut mine to 25% strength with PG immediately after trying it, in order to make it easier to work with, and I use 3 drops in that particular recipe.

    I use the TPA Caramel Cappuccino as a daily vape. I have been using it for over a year. When it first came out there were so many people just tossing it because they thought it was horrible.

    I did not give up on it and passed what worked for me along to others which is 1 drop flavoring per 10 ml of base. I lost count of the people that actually PMd me to thank me because my recipe worked so well for them.

    Sometimes I add a little TPA Sweet Cream or a little FA Caramel to the mix and that is pretty tasty too.

    2 drops per 10 ml would be way too strong and gives it a burnt taste IMO.

    Good luck to the OP.

    I drop straight from the dropper bottle that it comes in and that has worked well for me although I do understand what you are saying about variance in drop sizes.

    And... I will let it steep <SIGH>
    I'm wondering if the TPA caramel is the same way. It smells so awful... just so so awful. Did I mention it smells downright awful? I have a Craftsman tool chest that is my "vape locker". It is not allowed in the vape locker under any circumstances. Even if I pick it up by the bottle cap, the residue gets on my fingers and I can smell it for hours, even after washing my hands and using copious amounts of hand sanitizer.

    Just so we're clear, because we have to be with all the different caramels offered by TPA, that I'm not talking about caramel (original) or the caramel candy (although that one tastes as awful at 10% as I imagine the caramel would if I dared to try it); just the caramel... maybe we should have Linda give it a new name... like caramel (new) or "death by caramel" or something.

    Well, I just mixed it up at 1 drop in 5ml... it's not absolutely horrible, but I think I'll continue using other caramels instead.

    I do the same. Just use the dropper tip that's on the bottle. Close enough for me.

    There are those who make things happen. There are those who watch things happen. There are those who will ask: "What the heck just happened?"

    That's interesting. I never noticed a plain caramel that was not the original. I have found that if a flavor smells that strong, you have to use tiny amounts in your mixes. Some of the flavors that smell horrible taste great when you find the right amount to mix at.

    I love my Caramel Cappuccino but DH says it smells horrible when I vape it around him lol

    I agree about the Caramel Candy but it is tasty used at 5% or below mixed with a little Sweet Cream. I do like FW Caramel Candy better though for my tastes.

    Yeah, TPA has 3 caramels now. I haven't tried FW caramel candy, but I definitely intend to when I re-up on some other FW flavors.

    Thank you Lucent and Salem...

    There in is the solution to my issue....lol...I have always bought directly from Linda, and yep, always in glass bottles. And been a syringe mixer for a few years.

    Never thought about the flavoring being in a different container (bottled from different venders)

    Now the mixing begins....woot!!
