  • How many sugars do you have?

    I dont have sugar myself but had a new record set in my cafe today.

      Also, see a previous discourse on sugared (or not) coffee:

          Sounds more like Obsessive Compulsive Disorder rather than anything to do with the taste of the coffee.

            A teaspoon is 5g, and a can of coke has almost 40g of sugar, so thats 8 teaspoons. Usually a cafe sugar sachet is one teaspoon right? 12x5 = 60g - thats one heck of a lot of sugar.

            Id guess that with 12 sugars, you wouldnt have a clue about the taste of coffee from one place to the next. At least shes not a diabetic yet!

              I stopped taking sugar the day I got my Expobar.

              I have an uncle (with no teeth) that takes sugar like that.
              I used to joke that my aunt had to buy it in big hessian sacks to keep up with his intake.

                I have 1/2 -1 ts sugar at the most. I have found that sometimes it enhances the sweeter tones of the bean. Other times I dont have sugar at all.

                Most italians I know always have some sugar in their coffee. Its all a matter of taste I suppose.

                    Hmm, used to have 8 sugars on my weetbix, now down to 1, 6 in my black tea, now 2, and 3 in my coffee, now Im only drinking my brews, thats down to a level one, and am soon going to stop adding it to savor the taste proper.

                    12, wow, super sugar sheila...... ;D

                      Depends on the style of coffee Im drinking....

                      1 x Level t/spoon for an espresso
                      1 x " " " " Latte/Cappa/Flat White
                      ½ x t/spoon in a Doppio Piccolo (pretty well my standard cup these days)
                      ½ to 1 x Level t/spoon in a Cappa Cup of Plunger brew.

                      And..... No sugar on my Weetbix, just fruit and either juice or milk

                      Mal.

                        Got me intrigued, what is a Doppio Piccolo?

                        Sounds like an Italian musician.......... [smiley=laugh.gif]

                            I was told recently by a workmate that theyd seen someone add 13 teaspoons of sugar to their coffee. I tried to imagine that much sugar going in without the coffee overflowing!

                              At my place,
                              Doppio = double shot,
                              Piccolo = small glass/cup

                              So depending on how much foam you add/want, about 50/50 espresso/milk.

                              Can be a way to make the change from milk based coffee to espresso, or just a relatively intense short latte.
