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.
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!) - 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
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
