How To Make Coffee Syrup

Coffee syrup is a popular ingredient used in many coffee-based drinks, adding a sweet and flavorful touch to your morning cup. Here is a simple guide on how to make your own coffee syrup at home, with a few easy ingredients.


  • 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Flavorings of your choice (vanilla extract, cinnamon, cocoa powder)


  1. Brew the Coffee Start by brewing 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee, using your preferred method. Ensure that the coffee is strong and flavorful, as this will be the base for your syrup.
  2. Combine the Sugar and Water In a saucepan, combine 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the sugar has fully dissolved.
  3. Add the Coffee Once the sugar has dissolved, add in the brewed coffee to the saucepan and stir to combine.
  4. Add Flavorings (Optional) You can add any flavorings of your choice to the mixture, such as vanilla extract, cinnamon, or cocoa powder. Start with a small amount, about 1 tsp, and add more to taste.
  5. Simmer and Reduce Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat and let it cook for about 10 minutes, or until it has thickened to a syrup consistency. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking and burning.
  6. Store the Syrup Once the syrup has reached the desired consistency, remove it from heat and let it cool. Pour it into a clean and sterilized glass bottle and store it in the refrigerator for up to a month.

And there you have it, a simple and easy-to-make coffee syrup that you can use to enhance the flavor of your coffee. Experiment with different flavorings and adjust the sweetness to your liking. Enjoy!
