    I've learned about what it is and its health benefits. But what does it taste like in the regular things we Westerners use sugar in? I don't much like white sugar and I don't like dark brown sugar in my coffee or tea. I like blond sugar . You know the sugar in the raw kind. The best quality I've had is not made by "sugar in the raw". But it's sort of the type a little more golden  . Now I want to try jaggery instead, essentially for coffee. for health .I have some organic raw cane sugar (" The Real co" )granular and mid brown I really like that, but very expensive.  

    Thanks

    I don't know jiggery, per se, but have used Mexican Piloncillo in the same application that you ask -- coffee.  I think the two products are quite similar.  Piloncillo is a very raw sugar that comes in a cone and must be shipped or grated,  It gives coffee an extraordinarily syrupy and butterscotch/caramel-like mouth feel and taste.  I rather like it.

    Thank for the answer , that sounds interesting . those qualities are often appreciated in coffee itself.
