Where does sweetness come from? Can something taste sweet that has no sugar? How can we measure sugar in coffee?

This will be a more technical episode where we will talk about the sugar compounds like carbohydrates, sucrose, glucose and fructose and sweetness as a concept. We will also look at how sugar content differs based on processing style: washed, honey or natural.
