Flavored Coffee Syrup Adds A New Dimension To Beans

P: n/a
Flavored coffee syrup is a popular addition to any coffee beverage and
a welcome change for any regular coffee drinker. Whether you are
looking to satisfy a sweet tooth or just want something different,
flavored coffee syrups put a great kick into any drink. If you own a
coffee business, these syrups are another great way to attract
customers, allowing them to customize their own drinks so they can
enjoy exactly the flavors that their taste buds desire.

Coffee, of course, has a wonderful taste itself, but it also acts as a
catalyst for many other flavors. The growth in popularity of flavored
coffee is testament to coffee's versatility and strength. People today
have come to expect variety and certainly flavored coffee offers them
a choice. Flavored syrups means that coffee drinkers can enjoy their
beverage all day in a host of different ways.

The best flavored coffee syrups are made from all natural ingredients.
The chemical additives and preservatives found in some syrups can
distort or hide the flavor of the coffee, while all natural flavors
will simply enhance a beverage. Although all natural syrups are more
expensive, they are worth the investment as your customers will surely
taste the difference and come back time after time for more.

There are four different groups of syrups. The most popular syrups are
the vanilla based, which include nut and creme flavors like Irish
creme and hazelnut. These flavors go well with just about any type of
coffee, and can even be used to sweeten a cappuccino or latte.
Chocolate is the next most popular flavoring group, followed by the
fruit and spice flavors. It is always a good idea to have an offering
from each group so your customers can experience different flavors
(and spend more!)

Today, more than 100 different and delicious flavorings lace the
coffees, espressos, cappuccinos, and frappes. To say the least,
flavored coffee has become an interesting and fast growing area of the
coffee market. Blends such as Irish Creme, French Vanilla, Hazelnut
and even Macadamia Nut grace the shelves of both coffee specialty
shops and home kitchens alike.

The concept of adding flavors to enhance the taste of coffee is, by no
means, a new craze. Arabs began flavoring their coffee with cardamom
hundreds of years ago, Africans experimented with citrus flavors, and
South Americans enjoyed a hint of cinnamon in their cups.

Flavored coffee syrups are highly concentrated, so a little goes quite
a long way - this makes it very cost effective for the café owner. One
half-ounce shot of syrup is usually adequate to flavor an entire
coffee drink. These syrups are available from most coffee suppliers;
if you are a new retail or business customer, they will often send you
samples to allow you to taste them for yourself; this way you can
choose the best tasting syrup product for your customers. This is the
fun part - then you have to sell them!
