Fancy a bit of an experiment? Why not prove the hypothesis of salt dampening the bitterness of coffee for yourself? Whether you add it to the grounds or sprinkle it as though it were saffron just prior to serving, salt is purported to have mellowing effects on coffee. Brave enough to try it for yourself? Sprinkle Cerebos Iodated sea salt or Cerebos Mediterranean Sea Salt Flakes in your coffee one courageous morning. Go on. We dare you.

In addition to minimizing bitterness, salt can actually enhance sweetness in small quantities. A real Jack of all trades, its popularity is testimony to the many tasks which salt can fulfil. Don’t forget we temper coffee with sugar and milk – so why not make room for the kitchen all-star?
