I was surfing the internet when I came across this tidbit. I was doubtful but I have tried it and I do think it works.
A famous chef (I forget which one, there are so many thanks to Food Network) gave a tip for better coffee. Well I am always on the hunt for ways to improve my coffee experience so I read the article. He suggested adding 1/8 tsp of salt to your coffee grounds if you are making 6 or more cups of coffee. You may add just a scant amount to the grounds if you are just making a few cups. I gave it a try and now I add a little salt to my coffee grounds every morning. I do think it makes a difference.
Is this an old tip? It could be I had just never heard of it. I am a lover of rich mellow coffee and my usual brand is the McCafe in the medium roast.( red can). If I am out and about I love to stop at McD's early in the morning for a cup of their delicious coffee. Starbucks has always been too strong for me. It tastes bitter to my palette but Marvin loves it. We each make our own coffee in the morning so we can enjoy it to our own taste. At one time none of my children drank coffee but now the boys do, Amelia prefers Coca Cola in the morning.:) My mother started me on coffee early....we had a coffee cup with milk and a bit of coffee in it every morning. We thought we were big stuff. I was drinking regular coffee when I was about 10 years old.
Speaking of coffee I am one of those people who HATES flavored creamer. It is just too sweet for me...give me half and half every time. When I was a girl we just used milk in our coffee at home. At my grandparents house, they kept a small can of evaporated milk in the fridge for coffee. I thought it tasted so much better than regular milk!! Now I have to have Half and Half. I am spoiled. If the coffee is a good brand I can drink it black. Recently I have become addicted to a cup of green tea each evening after dinner. I guess our tastes do change over the years.
