It has been recommended to me recently that I should reduce my consumption of sugar. Not a big deal for me, except for one thing; I really like my coffee black and sweet.
I've been doing some research on alternative/non-sugar sweeteners. How depressing. Anyway, stevia seems to be the one that offers the best press. I found some organic 100% stevia extract (stevia rebaudiana) powder at the local airy-fairy food store. It is pretty disappointing. It provides a perception of sweetness as an after-taste. Not the rich deep sweetness I get from turbinado that I enjoy so much.
There are a multitude of stevia options on the shelf: powders, liquids, blends... I selected this particular one because it is 100% stevia extracted from the leaf of stevia rebaudiana. I doubt that I will bother with buying a second container when this one runs out.
Can anyone with experience provide suggestions on the most enjoyable form of stevia? Or any alternative sweetener that might make coffee taste similarly to coffee sweetened with sugar?
I'm more like I am now than I was before.
