Coffee Syrup for the coffee lovers!

When you go into any well known coffee shop, they always have a great range of syrups awaiting you, and when it hits the festive season, more and more coffee syrup flavors appear on their shelves and make our tongue tingle in anticipation. Whether you love a dash of flavored syrup in your Frappuccino or your latte, why not create your own this winter and give them to your coffee loving friends?

Making your own coffee syrup, for yourself or indeed someone else, is a great way of expanding your coffee regime. If you feel like the same taste of coffee just isn’t hitting the spot anymore, then creating your own syrup and keeping it ready to add a bit of excitement to your morning brew is a great idea!

Some popular flavors of coffee syrup you can find today include:

…and many more!

How to Make Your Own Coffee Syrup

First, you need to choose which type of syrup you want to make and then gather the ingredients accordingly. It’s incredibly easy to make and will totally transform your everyday cup of Joe!

Vanilla Coffee Syrup

You will need:

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract

Heat your water in a small pan over a medium-low heat. Add the sugar and stir until it is dissolved. Stir in the vanilla extract and allow the syrup to cool before you pour it into a bottle of your choice. A bottle with a pourer attachment will allow you to control your portions.

The main thing you need to remember with syrup is that boiled sugar can get very hot. Be careful when heating up a batch because the sticky substance can easily burn.

If you’re not a big coffee drinker, these different flavoured coffee syrups might just change your opinions of the drink forever. They add so much depth of flavour to a coffee, that you will find that the syrup can totally take away the bitterness of any coffee and can make it much smoother to drink.

Treat yourself to festive flavors during the holiday season such as gingerbread or pumpkin and enjoy a unique take on the coffee flavors.
