Your Ultimate Guide to Coffee Syrups

For coffee connoisseurs, coffee casuals and everyone in between, the right syrup always adds a tantalising twang to a morning cup of coffee. You’re spoilt for choice, too: from velvety smooth caramel to soft, mellow vanilla, there’s a reason why coffee syrups are rapidly growing in popularity. There’s also plenty of room for experimentation. Different syrups can be blended with all coffee types to create unique flavour combinations with every cup. Nowadays, the baristas aren’t the only ones making the most of these delicious flavour profiles. Our coffee syrups are bursting with mouth-watering tastes for those of you at home looking to satisfy your sweet tooth without compromising on the coffee flavours we all know and love. In this article, explore the wonderful world of coffee syrups, including how to use them and how to create your own distinct flavours at home.

How do you use coffee syrups?

First things first, what’s the best way to use coffee syrups? Everybody has their own methods, but we like to add our syrups to coffee like this: 1.) Finish brewing your coffee. 2.) Measure out your syrup with a tablespoon. (The amount you choose here is up to you, but we suggest using half a tablespoon for your average mug.) 3.) Give it a mix. 4.) Drink up! Et voilà! It’s as simple as that.

Create some unique flavours at home

Finding that perfect coffee syrup? *chef’s kiss*. Here at Tate & Lyle, we have three of the highest-quality coffee syrups on offer, all of which will elevate your coffee to the next level. Let’s take a look at various ways you can use them in coffee drinks.


Who doesn’t like caramel? Our silky smooth caramel-flavoured coffee syrup is made using pure cane sugar certified by Fairtrade and is the perfect addition to your coffee. It’s unendingly versatile, unashamedly sweet, and suitable for various drinks, from lattes to hot chocolates. Our favourite? That’s easy: a caramel iced coffee frappé. This cool delight is perfect for the sunny weather and features a double shot of espresso, milk, ice cubes and caramel syrup blended into a refreshingly smooth treat. If that sounds like your kind of thing, check out the syrup recipe here.


Versatile and velvety, vanilla extract and coffee are a match made in heaven. Our vanilla coffee syrup provides a more subtle, smooth taste than other flavours. While this vanilla syrup can also be used in an iced coffee frappé, our personal favourite is the indulgent vanilla dalgona coffee syrup recipe. Made by whisking coffee, vanilla extract coffee syrup, and three tablespoons of boiling water in a bowl, it produces a fluffy, thick foam that’s then spooned on top of a glass of warm milk. Follow the recipe here to discover this delight for yourself.


Last but certainly not least is our delectable hazelnut flavour coffee syrup, a particular favourite among those partial to a nutty twist in their coffee. Again, our cold brew frappé recipe, made using ice, milk, and a double shot of espresso, is the perfect way to use this delightful flavour. When the sun’s shining, you can’t beat it! Take a look at the recipe here.
