Temptations without the coffee taste

Coffee can taste bitter and is overwhelming for some when is first tasted. It took me to getting used to these sweet treats before I could stand the coffee taste. Easing my way into it. So here’s a few coffee suggestions for you to try;


Mostly steamed milk with an espresso shot of coffee. With 2 teaspoons of sugar, you can barely taste the coffee. Can also be served with a variety of flavoured shots.

Caramel Macchiato;

Sometimes called an espresso macchiato with a small amount of frothed milk. Contains a shot of caramel, and can be smothered with caramel on the top of the froth. Perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

White Chocolate Mocha;

A chocolate variant of a coffee late, also known as a Mocaccino. Also found for being found at Starbucks, great for those pick ups when you need an extra shot of energy on the go.

Vanilla Latte;

Coffee based drink, steamed milk but with a shot of vanilla. You can barely taste the coffee, yet it’s not as high in fat or overly sweet.


Trademarked for Starbucks but this blended iced coffee consists of crème base/ coffee and other various ingredients such as toffee, caramel and topped with whipped creme and sauces.

Caramel Iced Coffee;

This one is a basic but a favourite of mine. Cold coffee with ice, iced latte and iced mocha are a few examples. Can be made by making coffee, mix with a shot of caramel and cooling by pouring over ice or into ice cold milk and mixing.

Have fun exploring the world of coffee.
