Koffee Tip – Coffee Sweeteners

Coffee Sweeteners: There is an abundance of sweeteners available for those who are interested. (By the way even in Peru where they grow coffee people drink coffee in a plethora of ways: black, sweet and even with milk.)

  • Sugar: White, Cane, Raw, Molasses, Panela/Pilloncillo (pure unrefined cane sugar) : each can add a unique flavor.
  • Sugar substitutes: Sucralose, Saccharin, Aspartame, Stevia, Sugar alcohols (polyols): These can be helpful for counting calories or diabetics. (For those with diabetes please consult your doctor.)
  • Milk, Creamers, and Sweetened condensed milk can have sugars in them: each can add a unique flavor.
  • Sugar/flavors: White chocolate, Dark chocolate are great flavors along with providing sweetness.

There is a multitude of options and even more than listed here. If you are going for the coffee bean (technically seed) taste choose your sugar/flavor enhancers wisely. Because some will cover that coffee taste right up if too much is used. (But maybe that is what you want, to each their own.)
