Variety is the spice of life. Whether you prefer your coffee black, with cream, or with added syrups, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. With that in mind, here are some easy ways to add extra flavour to coffee that you may not have tried.
Before we start, it’s worth noting that you can get creative here. Sure, you might create something vile, but you may also stumble upon something wonderful!
Some of us like our coffee sweet. The great thing about it is that there are loads of ways to achieve sweetness while playing around with the flavour.
If you’re a bit bored of standard sugar then honey could be a great option. It’s natural, delicious, and even has some health benefits.
- 100% pure and natural.
- Single origin.
- Coarse filtered, unpasteurised, and unblended to give you all the good stuff.
Vanilla and coffee isn’t a new romance. They’re paired together by coffee shops around the world.
However, the big problem here is that it’s achieved through vanilla syrups. These are pretty cool but there’s nothing quite like the natural vanilla flavour.
Next time you’re craving a vanilla coffee, slice open a vanilla pod and add it during the brewing process.
Yes, you read that right. Ice cream in coffee.
One of the great things about ice cream is that most people love it. Adding it to coffee creates something pretty special as it provides an unmatched sweet and creamy combination.
Ice cream can be used as an alternative to milk or cream. A top-quality vanilla variety works well but you can choose any flavour you like.
However, it’s probably best to avoid one with chunks!
Cinnamon provides a wonderfully warm twist to a cup of coffee.
As an added bonus, cinnamon has loads of antioxidants so you can class it as a health boost.
You can either add a cinnamon stick during the brewing process or a dash once you’re ready to serve.
- Ethically sourced.
- From certified organic farms, without use of any chemicals or additives.
- 100% natural.
This is another that’s not a groundbreaking idea. That’s because chocolate and coffee blend together perfectly.
However, you can play around with this and try adding pieces of your favourite variety of chocolate.
A white mocha is certainly something worth shouting about.
- Cacao beans smell, cacao liqueur taste.
- Used with coffees, dessert drinks, milkshakes, flavoured milks, mochas.
- Enhances the dark chocolate feeling in your coffee and mocha.
Nutmeg provides a slight sweetness to coffee alongside an incredible earthy scent. Honestly, it’s so good.
You can add some nutmeg shavings to your coffee when it’s ready to serve. Just go easy on this one as it’s rather potent.
- JustIngredients inspire your cooking creations and fill your dishes with only the finest flavours.
- Responsibly sourced.
- No additives.
There’s something so inviting about the smell of warm gingerbread.
If you’re the kind of person who wants to spice things up then ginger could be the right addition to your coffee cup.
Adding some sliced ginger during the brewing process is an easy method of extracting that delicious, aromatic flavour profile.
In a similar way to ginger, cardamom can take your coffee up a notch or two.
Packed with loads of healthy stuff, it’s another way to get stuck into that health and fitness regime without leaving the house.
Simply add a few cardamom pods during the brewing process to extract their spicy goodness.
- Ground in small batches.
- Sweet, spicy, warm and aromatic.
- Organic and ethically traded.
Coconut milk is suitable for anyone who enjoys a creamy flavour. However, it’s also a great option for people looking to cut down on dairy.
Simply add it to your cup as you would with milk or cream.
- Made from freshly pressed coconut milk.
- Calcium and fat levels matched to semi-skimmed milk.
- Free from artificial flavours, preservatives and colourings.
Irish Cream Liqueur
A more adult-themed addition, Irish cream liqueur such as Baileys can really bring a coffee to life.
This special treat is perfect for the colder months or at the end of a long working week.
Of course, Irish cream liqueur contains whiskey so it might not be for everyone.
- A luxurious blend of smoth Irish cream and triple-distilled Irish whiskey.
- Baileys is the original and most-popular Irish cream liqueur.
- Awarded medals every year since 2003.
Whatever you decide to use to add extra flavour to coffee, enjoy. You’ve earned it!
