I don't know how everyone else likes their coffee, but when I order my medium cappuccino with two sugars every morning, this is how I like mine: hot, chocolatey and tasty as hell.
Occasionally, the barista in the cafe in my office building might put a bit less sugar than he normally does, which makes the coffee end up tasting a bit more bitter than usual. But who really cares? Not me, anyway. Coffee is coffee.
But some people – some sick, twisted people – have come up with a "trick" to help combat the problem that is bitter coffee: just add salt.
Adding a pinch of salt to your coffee can apparently reduce the bitterness, giving it a more mellow, enjoyable flavour overall, according to VinePair.
"We aren't suggesting you throw spoonfuls of sodium into your next bitter cup of coffee," they said.
"But simply adding a pinch, whether to cup or grounds, will take the edge off," VinePair explained. "Anything more than a pinch and you'll be salivating at the saltiness of your now-worse coffee."
Well, it turns out these nutjobs might be onto something, as scientific research published in the journal Nature confirms that sodium enhances flavour by suppressing the bitterness of food and drink.
So you know what? If you're feeling dangerous and you want to give this a shot, go ahead. But not me – I embrace coffee's fine, harsh edge.
I'd rather not play Russian roulette first thing in the morning.
