A coffee shop in Dublin is charging €3.50 to taste test some WATER

We love a great tasting menu just as much as the next person. You get the chance to try something you may not have tried before and discover new favourites. What's not to love, right?

But one coffee shop in Dublin has gone a bit overboard with their new tasting menu… and the Internet has gone into meltdown. 

3FE is fast becoming a coffee lover's favourite among the Dubs and last week it launched a new tasting menu for the adventurous coffee types out there who "want to take the time to have a more taste-orientated experience at 3FE."

But one item on the menu is causing major outrage. Water tasting. 

As you can see from the coffee shop's Instagram snap, it's four shots of water priced at €3.50. Which is a pretty hefty charge for water and customers are less than impressed. 

The Daily Edge contacted 3FE and spoke to Colin Harmon who told them: "What we're trying to achieve is an awareness of water and how it affects the taste of coffee. If you drink a cup of coffee, it's 98.5 percent water."

Colin also says that the quality of your water – whether it's hard or soft for example –  has a "massive effect on how the coffee extracts and how it tastes."

The water tasting menu includes bottled water, soft water, boiled water and 3FE's own water. They then want you to learn about which one makes the best coffee. 

Colin also told the DE that "not a huge amount" of people have tried the water tasting menu yet… go figure.
