There’s this thing about summer… we end up thinking about fruit smoothies, fruit cocktails, fruit teas, and well… fruit in every size shape and form – liquid or solid. Now, there’s nothing wrong with fruit. In fact, there’s nothing better than fruit this time of the year in Southern California.

But when we’re knee-deep in fruit baskets, we have a habit of forgetting about another one of our loves: coffee. The fact of the matter is coffee isn’t exactly the first beverage to pop to mind when you’re thinking about fruit. But, in reality, coffee and fruit can pair well together if you know what you’re doing.

Heck, coffee is a fruit. It’s called the coffee cherry! (You can learn more about that by reading this blog post.) Check out our three favorite ways to pair coffee with fruity “coffee” syrups. Be sure to give at least one of these incredible combinations a try. You won’t be disappointed.

#1 Cherry Drink Syrup

Since we’re on the subject of cherries, why not start with Amoretti Premium Cherry Syrup? This cherry syrup has real fruit flavor – not that gross artificial “cherry” flavor that you might find in a frozen gas station drink. So, get rid of any preconceived notions of what “cherry syrup” tastes like. Amoretti Premium Cherry Syrup is the perfect match for a cup of light, acidic Columbian coffee. It might not be your go-to coffee syrup seven days a week, but it’s a great way to bring variety into your morning routine!

#2 Banana Drink Syrup

The sweet and mellow taste of banana is the perfect way to add a little fruit flavor to your coffee without shocking it. Amoretti Premium Banana Syrup is an especially good match for coffee when it’s enjoyed in a Banana Chocolate Latte. Why use sugar or simple syrup when you can add this delicious coffee syrup instead?

Prefer nutty flavors to chocolaty flavors? Give our Macadamia Banana Latte a try instead.

#3 Blueberry Drink Syrup

Did you know that many coffees from Ethiopia and other regions of Africa actually have a strong taste of blueberries? Because most of these coffees are left to dry in the sun, they absorb the wilder tastes of the surrounding cherry. While Amoretti Premium Blueberry Syrup is in no way going to make your instant coffee taste like Ethiopian Harrar, it may enliven a regular old cup of Joe!
