I'm trying to limit my fake sugar/real sugar intake and HOLY COW I forgot how terrible coffee tastes without it.
yeah, it sucks. I've decided that I can have real sugar in my coffee as long as I keep working toward cutting down the fake sugar (and if coffee's really the only thing to which I add sugar). - ellbeecee
I want to look into maybe agave syrup? Something. this is Hell in a cup. - Sarah G.
And then there are people like me who find adding sugar to a cup of regular coffee an affront. I'm okay with chocolate/mocha/coffee beverages, but not sweetened regular coffee. (Or flavored, for that matter.) But that's just me. My daughter loves vanilla or hazelnut syrup in her coffee, and I just want to barf. Maybe it's a gender thing. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I don't add flavor syrups (or brew flavored coffee for that matter). I've never done anything with agave syrup so I'm not sure how that'd be. - ellbeecee
Flavored coffee just always smells weird to me. I like milk and a little sweetness to take the edge off. (I'm also drinking a Starbucks Americano right now, so it's like super kick you in the teeth bitter.) - Sarah G.
Agave works nicely in tea so I surmise it will also work well in coffee, though because it has a slight "flavor" like honey, it might be a bit odd at first. I'd test the theory for you but I'm not a sweetened coffee kind of person. - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm beginning to think there are two kinds of coffee drinkers: People who drink coffee--a beverage with no calories, no dairy, nothing except water and coffee beans)--and people who drink various other coffee-flavored beverages. Maybe that's why over-roasted coffee (*$, Peet's) is so popular: It stands up to adulterants so well. - Walt Crawford
I've been using blackstrap molasses--it's high in iron and calcium! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
I'll look into that! I enjoy how rustic sounding that sounds too! - Sarah G.
It's also an excellent home remedy for 'roids! (But so messy!) http://www.peoplespharmacy.com/2011... - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
(For those of you that don't click the link, you eat it for the hemorrhoid relief, don't apply it topically, which is what I initially assumed.) - Sarah G.
;-p I actually do take a couple teaspoons a day, plus one in my coffee, for medicinal purposes. It makes me feel like Granny Clampett. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
My grandmother used to take a tablespoon of blackstrap molasses everyday. She tried to give it to us, too. But I usually managed to avoid it (along with the spoonfuls of mineral oil, vinegar and honey, and various other preventive remedies. BTW, she lived to be 100 years old (and gardened well into her 90's.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I'm with Walt on this one. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I've liked agave in coffee. Right now I'm only allowed honey or fruit sugars, and I've found that honey works very nicely in coffee. - lris
