Default Extract Flavors

I'm looking for a cheaper type of Apricot Extract to add for a flavoring in my beer at keging. Right now I buy the 4oz. extract's from the local brew store and heard that a coffee apricot extract may be cheaper and just as good to add the flavor to my beer!!
Any products, thoughts or suggestions?

I highly suggest using fresh fruit since 90% of extracts don't give you a true flavor/aroma, but it's up to you.

LorAnn makes great extracts, just makes sure you don't buy anything with oil in it.

Yes, usually grocery stores will carry it. It will be in with the baking supplies. A few of my local stores don't carry it, but I've also found it in baking specialty stores. You can also buy online for fairly cheap.
