Making homemade coffee syrup is a delightful way to add flavor to your coffee or other beverages. This recipe uses Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, so it’s gentle on the stomach. Using coffee that is naturally lower in acidity results in a smoother coffee syrup and is less acidic. Below is a simple recipe for a basic coffee syrup that you can customize to your liking.
Bring the mixture to a boil while stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.
Lower the heat and let it simmer for 3 minutes, stirring often.
Transfer the coffee syrup to a container and allow it to cool to room temperature.
Once cooled, seal and store the syrup tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to 1 month.

If you prefer a thicker syrup, simmer it for 15 minutes or until it has reduced by half and reached your desired consistency. Remember to stir frequently and adjust the heat if needed.
If you want a flavored coffee syrup add a few drops of flavor concentrate, such as vanilla or hazelnut.
This coffee syrup is quite versatile and can be used to flavor beverages and add a hint of coffee to desserts, breakfast treats, and ice cream. It can also be used in cocktails and drizzled over cake, cheesecake, pie, and ice cream. Enjoy experimenting with the coffee syrup in various recipes!
