Have you ever sat down with a nice warm mug of coffee fresh from your coffee brewer just to take that first sip and it is too bitter to drink? Well after a little bit of online detective work, it appears that the cure for the bitter in coffee is to add a small pinch of salt.
Salt changes the coffee taste by dampening the bitterness. By adding salt you will highlight the other flavor notes of coffee: the deep, dark woodsy taste of the bean.
So not one to shy away from trying something new with coffee, I braved the salt in coffee effect, and added just a tiny bit to my cup of joe. The bitterness of the coffee isn't as sharp, but it is still there, however, I may have used too little salt.
So long as you are allowed salt in your diet, try this trick with your coffee and let us know how it worked for you. We'd love to hear about your coffee experience.
