Coffee Trick

Monday, December 19, 2011

Psst, fancy a little coffee tip to impress your guests this Christmas? Have you heard about the salt trick? If not, here it is: If you want your cuppa to have a proper distinguished taste even after adding milk and sugar to it, simply add a tiny bit of salt to your grounded coffee container each time you refill it. Somehow the salt brings out the best of coffee. Voila! xo

P.S: More amazing coffee including Vietnamese iced coffee and my beloved French press:)
P.P.S: Coffee break in Italy and in NYC!

that's really interesting, maybe its the same reason why chocolate chip cookies and caramels taste so good with salt! mmm!

Stephanie said...

Weird, I've never heard that on before! Although I have heard that sprinking salt (instead of sugar) on raw grapefruit helps to bring out the grapefruit's sweetness, whereas sugar brings out its tartness. So maybe it has something to do with contrasting tastes?

Diana Mieczan said...

Giggle, me to Ira and Marissa, that is such a great point. That must be the reason for sure.

Diana Mieczan said...

That is totally interesting and I'm going to try that salt trick on a grapefruit this week, Stephanie. Brilliant! You are very right, it has to do something with contrasting tastes.
