coffee and brewed chocolate

I know some people still drink black coffee while paleo, but I'm not a big fan. I used to drink (occasionally) brewed chocolate but it has sugar in it...not a lot. What do you think? Will this be enough to throw me off my paleo kick? I'm only a few days in but I feel great and I don't want to sabatoge myself.

(From the website)What is Brewed Chocolate? We brew whole cacao beans in water to extract the flavor and essence. Much the same as coffee is brewed from coffee beans -- except it takes a lot longer. Then we sweeten this wonderful liquid with organic sugar and reduce it into concentrated syrup. You stir this syrup into hot water - by the teaspoon - to instantly create a small cup of brewed chocolate. Each teaspoon serving contains only 24 calories and less than half a gram of fat.

That doesn't sound like much sugar but is it too much?

Sorry, meant to add more to my comment but my computer had other ideas... Crui Bru is a delish cocoa, it's just cocoa, but fancy pants cocoa with no additives or sugar. You would enjoy it, I think.

i drink coffee with milk every day - about 5 cups. Paleo can take my coffee when it prises it from my cold dead hands!

My morning drink is fair trade organic cocoa powder, hot water with a spoonful of coconut oil in it. The coconut sweetens it a bit and also gives it a rich "mouth-feel". It's perfect.

I drink bulletproof coffee and that's great.

I also make a cocoa drink with 100% cocoa and almond/coconut or hemp milk every once in a while for a treat. I sweeten it with raw honey as I think Stevia tastes like poison.

How is that different from chocolate syrup?

Cocoa powder + cream + honey to taste (or rice syrup) plus water = mmmm Add protein powder for more body.

It's not syrupy at all. It's more like tea than hot chocolate. But it does have the added sugar. No dairy though or added fats.

@Becky, There is a problem with milk even raw at high temperatures, it mutates the proteins that make it beneficial. I used to put raw milk in my teas and coffees and I have stopped because of that unfortunate news :( I mean when you think about it, what makes pasteurization bad, is that it exposes milk to much higher temperatures than it would ever see otherwise.
