Coffee syrup on leftover coffee
Syrup on leftover coffee offers a rich coffee flavour and can be used for both hot and cold beverages. Or why not pour it over a cake or some ice cream?
Mix 4 parts organic sugar with 6 parts leftover coffee. Espresso coffee offers the most flavour, but fine-grind coffee works great too. Or why not mix the two?
Boil down for 10 minutes and pour the syrup into a clean bottle.
Coffee syrup is tasteful as it is, but is also great to flavour, with cardamom and vanilla for example. Add 3 cut vanilla beans and cardamom before boiling down the syrup. You can also use vanilla sugar, but reduce the amount of sugar, otherwise the syrup will be too sweet. Other suggestions for flavouring are cacao, cinnamon, chai tea, chai spices or saffron.
Reusing the coffee grounds is one of the tips in Löfbergs´s initiative to help more people make use of the whole cup and make the most of their coffee. By using the whole cup, the consumers will get more for their money at the same time as we make a joint effort for the environment.
