Can I Put Coffee Syrup In Hot Coffee?

Nettari coffee syrups can be added to just about any beverage, hot or cold. You can use your favourite coffee syrup to flavour coffee, tea, or hot chocolate or whip up a latte – Barista-style. Some people use coffee syrup rather than sugar as it integrates with coffee more easily with the same sweetness. Others like to use coffee syrup as a non-creamer way to enhance their drinks with specific flavours. A general rule of thumb is to use one tablespoon of syrup to replace one sugar packet.

Where Did Coffee Syrup Originate?

The origin of coffee syrup has a few different stories. Still, it is most commonly said to have originated during the influx of Italian or Portuguese immigrants to Rhodes Island in the 19th century. These folks, or the generations preceding them, drank a sweetened coffee with plenty of milk at home. By the 1930s, the drink was featured at ‘Soda Fountains’, known as popular corner restaurants or Cafes today. This version was made by stirring syrup made from coffee and sugar into ice-cold milk.

In 1932, the first commercial coffee syrup was born. Strangely enough, this was not in its home town of Rhodes Island but in neighbouring Massachusetts. The manufacturer was Silmo, and the product was a hit. By 1938, a Rhode Island brand launched its own version, and by the 40s, others started entering the coffee syrup fray. There was competition among the brands and spirited disagreements between folks that thought that this or that syrup was best, and like so many recipes, this will still be an ongoing debate.

That is why we stock and deliver only the best coffee products at Coffee Capsules Direct.

The history and origins of coffee strains or syrups might be debated by many, but the delicious drink will always remain in high regard, and that is what we bring to your table— or coffee counter. But you know what we mean, and we know what you want.

Like happiness, coffee comes in many forms and at various times and places. It also comes in different tastes and flavour combinations. Allegedly, they all started on the ancient Ethiopian plateau when a goat herder noticed his goats eating a berry that made them so energetic they couldn’t sleep at night.

The local monks found that the berries enabled them to stay alert for long hours of prayer, and coffee eventually spread to the Arabian Peninsula and Europe, then to Asia, the Caribbean, the Americas and finally, to Africa. Today, coffee and coffee syrup (and coffee pods and coffee machines) are available worldwide, from Africa to Antarctica and Alaska to America. Coffee is now not just a drink but a very sincere institution for many and most.
