If you’re looking to take your coffee drinking experience to a whole new level, then perhaps it’s time to dip your toe into the world of coffee syrups!
With countless flavour options, you can mix and match your flavours to fit your mood, the weather, or seasonal events! If you’re looking to add a little spice to your coffee, then stick with us as we guide you through flavoured syrups for coffee.
What Are Coffee Syrups?
Coffee syrups offer the perfect way for you to recreate your favourite coffee shop latte, cappuccino or mochas at home! They also provide a great alternative for sugar, with some sugar-free options available. Plus, coffee syrups are brilliantly versatile and can add a great twist to other hot beverages, smoothies and even cocktails!
Coffee syrups come in some of the most delicious and hard to make flavours ranging from a simple vanilla all the way to toasted marshmallow!
How To Use Coffee Syrups
Coffee syrups aren’t just for skilled baristas! They are super easy to use and often come packaged in beautifully aesthetic glass bottles that you can continue to use and display even after the syrup has run out.
Using Syrup as Sweetener
Coffee syrups make a great alternative to sugar or sweetener, and the sugar-free syrups available are great for those looking to cut down on their sugar intake without sacrificing great flavour.
One tablespoon (or pump) of syrup is the equivalent of one tablespoon of sugar, so it’s super easy for you to get that perfect sweetness for your drink. Simply stir in the amount of syrup you want, and it’ll dissolve into your coffee.
Using Syrups in Lattes
If you want to recreate one of your coffee shop favourites at home, then a flavoured syrup is the way to go!
Most coffee shops use one pump of syrup for an 8-ounce drink, two for a 12-ounce and three for 16-ounce.
With this in mind, add the syrup of your choice to your cup or mug and then add a double shot of espresso (or a ½ cup of strongly brewed coffee). Stir the two together and top it off with your choice of steamed milk for a delicious coffee shop latte at home!
