Many upper-class Brits (among them the Queen. reportedly) think that =
Demerara sugar is the only sweetener that enhances the flavor of good =
coffee.

If you want to make rum or put a dab of Demerara type sugar in your =

It's from Hawaii, not Demerara, but its so close to good Demerara sugar =
that my indelicate nose can't tell the difference.

I find I don't care for Demerara.  The flavor is a bit "too" much for 
my coffee and often lends an astringent flavor and has a heck of a 
time dissolving in a reasonable time.  I use raw (unrefined more in 
particular) for my daily sugar.  A little richer, but doesn't 
overshadow the coffee.  Way better than my spouse's grandfather who 
added two heaping spoonfuls of molasses (unsulfured of course ;) to 
his 8 oz mug of coffee.
Now, Demerara in my tea I find I do like - the hotter tea (more near 
boiling) dissolves it better.

Actually, if you can find Lemon Heart Demerara Rum in 151 proof has a 
lovely flavor, watch the open flames....
Meyers is an acceptable substitute though.

I drove past that sugar plant a few times when I was in Maui. I almost
always prefer the raw stuff these days.
