    Fifteen Ways to Take Your Coffee to the Next Level

    Fifteen Ways to Take Your Coffee to the Next Level

    by Alex Brecher March 03, 2023

    Coffee may be anything from an essential part of your morning to a comforting ritual that you look forward to every day. While the perfect cup is dependable, you can also add some ingredients to take it to the next level. When you add them to a high-quality, smooth brand, such as Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, you may be astonished at how amazing each sip can be. Here are 15 ingredients you can add to take your coffee to the next level.

  • Chocolate
  • Chocolate is good for any time of the day, and there are many ways to add it to your coffee. Stir in melted milk or dark chocolate, or keep it lower in calories with cocoa. Adding white chocolate to espresso can give you a decadent white chocolate mocha. You can also use cocoa or chocolate shavings as a topping for your coffee.

    If you have acid reflux and need a lower-acid alternative, consider using dutched chocolate or dutch-process cocoa, which is alkalized and is lower in acid than other types of chocolate. 

  • Cinnamon
  • Add some spice to your coffee with cinnamon. Place one or two cinnamon sticks in it, or sprinkle ground cinnamon on top before serving it. Either way, the aroma will be amazing.

  • Oat Milk
  • Oat milk adds creaminess without a trace of dairy. Unsweetened almond milk, coconut milk, and soy milk are also dairy-free alternatives. If you have acid reflux, choosing Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee and a dairy-free creamer can help keep acid consumption down.

  • Honey
  • Honey is sweet, smooth, and a source of antimicrobials. Each type of honey has a slightly different flavor and consistency, so experiment to see which you like best. Just stir in a bit while your coffee is fairly hot.

  • Nutella
  • Chocolate hazelnut spread is one of the most decadent and easiest coffee add-ins to try. It perfectly complements Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, which has a chocolatey flavor from its medium dark French roast, and a nutty flavor from the coffee beans.

  • Turmeric
  • This one is a little surprising, but it is a great way to add antioxidants to your day. Just stir in a bit of this bright yellow spice.

  • Butter
  • There is no thicker or creamier mix-in alternative than butter, and keto dieters call the result bulletproof coffee. High in energy and fat, butter can help you hit your macros on a high-fat diet, and it is delicious.

  • Whipped Cream
  • How can you resist a pile of whipped cream atop coffee as it slowly melts in and turns your drink into a dreamy escape? Dairy whipped cream, half-and-half, and non-dairy alternatives are all fair game.

  • Irish Cream Liqueur
  • An after-dinner delightful treat is yours when you add coffee-flavored liqueur to your coffee. 

  • Nutmeg
  • Ground nutmeg is just one option. You can also opt for ginger, allspice, and cloves to give your coffee a pumpkin pie-like aura. You can even stir in some pumpkin. Give it a try!

  • Vanilla
  • Whether you choose vanilla pods or vanilla extract, you can give your coffee a new depth by adding vanilla. 

  • Syrup
  • Flavoring syrups give you all kinds of freedom. They come in a range of flavors, such as vanilla, chocolate, nut, and fruity flavors, and you can even opt for sugar-free and calorie-free choices to keep your coffee guilt-free. 

  • Marshmallows
  • Add one or a few, and let the fluffy cloud melt into your coffee. Choose whether you prefer mini marshmallows or large ones.

  • Ice Cream
  • Can it really get any better than this? Ice cream is sweet, creamy, and perfect. Add it to hot coffee, iced coffee, or cold brew coffee. Vanilla, chocolate, and coffee ice cream may be the most common choices, but you can use your imagination. Any flavor can be great!

  • Ginger
  • Ginger is known for its stomach-calming properties, and you may want to pair it with a brand of coffee that is gentle on the stomach, such as Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee

    Try any of these add-ins to take your coffee to the next level, and you may find that you have a new way to escape from daily life just by sipping your coffee. With Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, your coffee can be gentle on the stomach and delicious.
