Coffee, a versatile bean from which a multitude of flavours and aromas evolve. Roasting conditions and any addition of food substances during roasting of coffee beans play significant roles in determining its final profile. One of our FoodSavvy.sg videos has highlighted the difference between ‘coffee’ and ‘coffee mixture’ and therein also identified some of the food substances (including sugar) that can be found in coffee mixture products sold in SG. In ‘coffee mixture kosong’, it is implied that no sugar has been added to the coffee mixture, but could have been added into the coffee beans during processing to obtain coffee mixture.
