Cheers Laura. I'm afraid I've been using Truvia tablets or tesco own brand tablets or powder. I've been meaning to give sweetleaf liquid a try, but I'm going to try the nunaturals as you suggest (in the UK so I'm not sure about getting the Vitacost). I'd kind of assumed that as Truvia was one of the most well known that it was probably as good as the taste got (not necessarily the best health wise) as its the taste that sells. I guess advertising makes even things that taste yuk sell as well things that taste good but otherwise harm you!

what kind of stevia are you using? I've posted this above, "the right brand and form of stevia is important! there are only two kinds I'll buy NuNaturals alcohol free liquid stevia , and Vitacost brand alcohol free liquid stevia (MUCH cheaper). All others taste absolutety disgusting, including the powder form of nunaturals"

I'm struggling with this one too. Stevia, just doesn't taste right in coffee. Considered honey for a while but then realise that most of the beneficial components of the honey are desroyed by heat - boo! Am now thinking about a small dash of maple syrup (grade B). I know it's not strictly paleo but it does have some phytonutrients in it that are presumably heat stable as the stuff is produced by boiling...

Of course, unless we're drinking quarts of the stuff a little sugar in coffee is probably fairly benign - i only drink a couple of cups a day, maximum.

Try cold brew coffee - a lot less acid, therefore not so bitter and less need to sweeten.

Can you just try to ween yourself off sweeteners? I used to need them in my coffee and tea, now they repulse me. Coffee/Tea is much better plain.

Why do you want a stevia alternative? Stevia is paleo enough.

Heck, unless you have reason to restrict carbohydrate significantly, a little cane sugar in your coffee is fine and dandy (though not strictly paleo).

Stevia tastes kind of too bitter in coffee. You could try xylitol. Careful go easy on it at first, or you'll get the runs. Something like 1 teaspoon is fine.

Better yet, try it black with just a touch of cinnamon. If you can't stand the taste of black coffee, perhaps it's because you'd need a higher quality coffee.

Really good coffee, you could eat a couple of the beans and they'd taste delicious. The cheap/common stuff is terrible and you'd need to mask the flavor with some kind of cream and sweetener.
