Even George Howell said that he add sugar in his coffee when he just can not get a decent cup of coffee, specially when travelling. And I also wholeheartedly agree with him because when I am in Guatemala travelling, I go thru the same thing.
But we have to ask ourselves a question. Why and What is so bad about adding sugar into your coffee?
When we talk about Specialty coffee, it isn't made in a day or a week or even a month!. In Specialty coffee, everyone involved is working their butts off to bring the best coffee possible on the table. Furthermore, those flavors are unique! They are created mostly by coffee varietals, micro climate, weather, rain, fertilizer, shades and altitude and most importantly the PROCESSING METHOD.
And the roasters choose roast profiles that they truly believe will bring out the best taste in those coffee beans.
To me, personally, sugar is great for "bad coffees", but for the great coffees, it not only changes the flavors, but also MUTES the fine flavors of the specialty coffee.
I hope that when you find a good specialty coffee shop, try it without sugar. You might enjoy it way more.

There is a coffee company called, Dapper Coffee, in Singapore. They have brought out two GLITTER COLD BREW drinks!
They are called " Unicorn Tears (really?!)" & "Gold Brew (better than Unicorn Tears!).
Supposedly, they are SOC Yirgacheffe from Ethiopia. I guess that they have infused some sort of "glitter" into the cold brew as a marketing gimmick.
So, is this a Good Coffee?. I think NOT.

While staying in Guatemala, Aeropress became my best friend. it is easy, portable and just need hot water to make some great coffee.
I am sure that many of us have AP at your home. There are some important thing to remember when you use AP.
here it is. BTW, I am not going to say things that most of us know, like washing AP with warm water before using it, using good water for your AP brew, Pre-wetting your paper filter..etc.
So, some important stuff.
1. Ground bean : bit finer than drip grind.
2. Add 50 ml and infuse for 30 sec. and add rest of water and little mix and wait 30 sec.
3. Don't press FULL DISTANCE. Stop when you hear a hissing noise : why? you do not want to extract bitterness. (many people forget about this last part!)
4. ENJOY!!!!! yes, this is the most important part and the best part of making AP.
