    Newbie question #1: Syrup vs. flavored bean

    I'm trying to convince my wife that high quality syrup is the way to go. However, as I don't know what I'm talking about, I turn to you, people who might know what they're talking about

    We're partial to hazlenut if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    There will soon be a meaningful quote here, possibly, and possibly about coffee at that.

    It realy would come down to a personal preference.

    I don't like too strong of a flavor in my coffee, so I prefer a well flavored coffee blend over using syrups, Although syrups do have there place in a good drink.

    I do not drink flavored coffee..but the difference is that the syrup is just that ...sugar. A lot of people do not like sugar...so they like the flavored coffee beans.

    I never made the syrup - sugar connection, but that would probably be why I don't like syrups much, I drink my coffee black.

    Huh!

    That's interesting... I wonder if unsweetened syrups are available?

    (Or if there is, therefore, a market?!?)

    This must be why my wife doesn't like them. Hmm....

    There was a company that made these sprays that you spray on the filter and it would flavor the pot of coffee...it was the same stuff you put on the beans to flavor them...they only promoted it for a short time because there wasn't really a market for it. It is just easier and cheaper for the consumer to buy the coffee already flavored

    Routin(1883) syrups are all unsweetend, they have no added sugar or preservatives. It is a really big selling point as well.

    They are still quite sweet though

    OK secret word is added, all sugar in the routin is natural sugars.
    Just a selling point really, it comes down to taste in the end

    "it comes down to taste in the end"

    And along those lines, the less "added" sugar the better I suppose; I can always add my own.

    Just curious as to what "natural" sugars there are in Hazlenut syrup, as I've had a plain hazlenut, and it's not what I'd describe as "sweet".
