One of the best things about enjoying coffee is its nearly endless flavor capabilities. From coconut oil, to lattes, to creamers and beyond, coffee has the ability to fit into nearly every taste pallet.  And while we are huge fans of different syrups and happily provide them to customers nationwide we're a pretty hands on crew and did our research on how hard it is to make your own coffee syrups.
