Brown sugar is a type of sweetness found in coffee …a sweetness characterized by a hint of molasses, yet quite refined as well. Since Brown sugar of the common type is highly refined (made by recombining molasses with refined white sugar) it makes sense that it’s qualities are only mildly rustic. One might distinguish between mild light brown sugar and dark brown types. Other types of natural sugars are far more complex in flavor than supermarket brown sugar: Muscovado, Turbinado, Demerara, and Colombian Panela sugar.
