When it comes to flavour, options are endless. It all comes down to personal preferences, so you can mix up whatever you want.
Still, some ingredients are more recommended for coffee because they just blend in perfectly. Don’t overdo with ingredients, and add just 1-2 teaspoons at a time, because you don’t want to overpower the coffee flavour.

- French Vanilla: just add two teaspoons of vanilla extract.
- Milk Chocolate: add two tablespoons of chocolate syrup and mix with one teaspoon of cocoa powder.
