Not every customer wants to drink coffee unsweetened. Thankfully, there are many creative ways to add flavour and sweetness without overloading on sugar, syrups, and whipped cream.


Have you considered these top tips?
Steam milk before adding to coffee to enhance its natural sweetness. Pro tip: 60-65 degrees Celsius is the ideal temperature for creating perfect foam and preventing milk “skin” from forming.
Some common flavours are associated with sweetness. Dust the top of a drink with cocoa, cinnamon, or vanilla powder.
Infuse coffee with citrus peels or other fruits to intensify sweetness perception.
Use cold brew coffee, which tends to have less bitter notes.
It’s also a good idea to have sugar free syrups available should consumers want to sweeten to their preference.
