Natural Coffee Flavorings ~ Great Addition to Your Morning Cup of Joe

I love a good cup of coffee in the morning, especially after I started making Natural Coffee Flavorings.  I used to buy the syrups in the store, or the pre-flavored creamer, but they always seemed to leave an aftertaste that I wasn’t happy with.  For years I have been making a simple syrup that sits out when I have guests over, as an addition to their iced tea.  One day, while making the syrup, I thought, why not make my own Natural Coffee Flavorings?

Simple Syrup + Natural Flavoring = Natural Coffee Flavorings

I always start with raw sugar that I buy in bulk.  The flavor is amazing, with a subtle hint of molasses.  It adds a richness to everything you put it in.  I added my favorite coffee flavorings, vanilla and cinnamon, to make the sugar perfect, while the simple syrup was cooling.  I used vanilla extract, but I think next time I will purchase some vanilla beans for an even more amazing flavor in my Natural Coffee Flavorings.

Better Coffee with Natural Coffee Flavorings

I have to admit, my  coffee is so much better with Natural Coffee Flavorings.  Since making my first batch, I’ve been coming up with even more combinations of flavors.  Simmering dried cherries or blueberries makes a fantastic fruity concoction that is perfect for lighter blends of coffee or even tea.  Putting some pumpkin pie spice in a mesh tea ball and infusing it will the syrup boils makes a wonderful blend perfect for autumn year round.  Whole cloves and cardamom makes a chai-like blend that is perfect for tea, or just a really tasty coffee.

Any way you spice it, Natural Coffee Flavorings are amazing, and an easy way to know you aren’t getting weird chemicals in your coffee.  Save interesting bottles all year and give Natural Coffee Flavorings as gifts!  I’m going to be watching how my friends and family flavor their drinks over the next few months and make a mental note so I can give them the perfect bottle at Christmas!  Easy to make, Natural Coffee Flavorings are going to become your favorite coffee sweetener!
