brown sugar or white?

My partner insists that brown sugar should be used to sweeten coffee, but I just tip in white sugar when he is not looking and it seems to taste just as good! Anyone out there think that brown sugar is better in coffee? Or do you have an even better sweetening solution?

It tastes different, not better. I've run out of white sugar and an using light bown in coffee at the moment, it's....different, probably not as swet and if you put more in then you can only taste sugar so what's the point. It may be more natural so better for you but I'm not even sure it is.

Oh, you have a very good taste test going on just made for this post! I use brown sugar in some forms of baking, but I use white in hot drinks. Because of those stupid blood tests I have now got used to drinking my hot drinks without sugar or sweeteners. Not as nice, but I just think of all the sugar I have saved so that I can have a cake lol.

I don't think I am supposed to save it all up and have cakes, either, Rainbow,but I am not silly enough to check that one out with my Doctor lol. All she said was no sugar in tea, on cerals etc. Cakes never even came into the discussion. Seriously, I am being careful and rationing things but it just depends if my body goes cranky. If it takes up the thyroxine I am fine, if it doesn't I can eat what I like because it won't make one itty bit difference. I am still putting white sugar in his coffee lol.

Yes, they do, but coffee has such a strong taste of its own I would have thought that it would drown out the sugar taste. We have upped our grade of coffee from the mass produced ones to a speciality coffee and he really enjoys this. He only drinks coffee as a treat so I say, why not have the best?

Not me, i can taste the difference of white sugar to brown in a coffee. I like white sugar better for my coffee than the brown sugar. I don't know why, to think its just the same, both are sugar. It's just the colors that they are differ...

I would choose a white sugar. White sugar is clean and better than brown sugar. I know the process of sugar. White sugar is a process and washed sugar. While brown sugar is not. Beside that I like the taste of white sugar rather than brown sugar.
