Apparently, We Should Be Adding Salt To Our Coffees…

·1-min read

Did you know that around two billion cups of coffee are consumed each day in the UK? I mean, why would you know that, but still – interesting, right?

So, we know us Brits are crazy for our coffee, so if there’s a way of improving it, we ought to be doing it, right? But what if that’s by adding salt? Would you be up for that?

According to experts, we should be adding a pinch of salt to a cup of coffee, and there’s a good reason why.

Salt has a way of neutralising bitterness in general, so adding it to coffee is a great way to remove some of the bitterness of coffee; leaving you with a smoother drink.

The best way of doing this is by adding a pinch to your coffee grounds before you make your coffee.

But, coffee quality expert Spencer Turer, has something to say on this theory. He believes that if you buy good quality coffee, there’s no need for the salt.

He says that “if you’re buying good coffee and you have a good roaster, you’re not going to get the bitterness you need the salt for.

“It goes back to the days when the quality of coffee wasn’t that good.”

So, we guess it’s up to you to try it at home and see if you’re a fan or not!
