    Not everyone stevo. I'm in the 0.1% of the population that's not real keen on coffee. I like the idea though.
    What about 'chilli honey'? They add it to chocolate so that shows it makes friends with sweet things pretty easily.

    I knew there was someone that didn't like coffee :blush:

    Chilli could be interesting!

    I was thinking, vanilla essence might be good also :twothumbsup:

    Or strawberry? Or herbs? Or brandy??? My uncle was a beekeeper too. When we stayed there during school holidays there was no sugar, only honey. That was ok, but they also had goats, and the only milk they used was goats milk. Corn flakes or coffee with both is definitely an acquired taste.
    I'm still a septic :hysterical: Mark. Capilanos are a very respectable company, but others may not be so forthcoming...
    I'm not a fan of instant coffee Steve, and will drink tea if that's the options. Also my home-roasted coffee is totally different to the bought roasted stuff, which is quite anaemic compared to mine. A cup of PNG Robusta will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck!!
    Stevo have you heard of chilli wine? It's not actually wine, but a cordial made from chillis-the recipe is in all the old cookbooks. It's very nice. Honey to replace the sugar could be worth an experiment.....

    I know in the US that so called 100% pure honey can be up to 52% corn syrup and not be noted on the ingredients.

    I have a fantastic honey wine recipe that I make. It is easy, and uses basic ingredients. All you do is brew for 8 weeks and you have a honey wine that tastes like French Sauternes. Let me know if any of you are interested and I will post my secret recipe.

    No sugar for me or honey in my coffee. I only like honey on crumpets and in lemon hot drinks.

    I swear, quince jelly taste a lil like honey. Love that. I made some a while back and omg they are to die for.

    In a similar vein a mate 'round the corner bought himself a flow-hive a few months back. His offer for free honey will not go unaccepted. :)

    Yes I would be interested to hear about those answers also, Stevo.
    It's one thing to have a little hive of native bees but I would not feel right depriving the poor things of their winter resource.
    Whereas honey bees usually make too much honey & they can afford to loose a little to me.
    A small flow hive might be just what I need.
    I'm sure we'll soon see them for sale secondhand on gumtree as people fail to care for them correctly & loose the poor bees.
