While we’re all for trying the latest coffee concoctions, we’re not sure a salty brew is really to our taste.
But, as it turns out, adding a shake of salt to a good cup of Joe is actually a thing.
According to culinary expert Alton Brown, salt can be used to reduce a cuppa’s bitter flavour and to remove the “stale” taste of tank-stored water.
On his website the food show presenter recommends adding a quarter teaspoon of kosher salt to every six tablespoons of ground coffee.
He claims you won’t be able to taste the salt but because salt is better at neutralising bitterness than sugar a quarter teaspoon will “do the trick”.
