I have heard of it. we are currently using up a big can of coffee that was given to us. we find it bitter. I tried salt, not to very much avail. I backed off on the amount of coffee per pot and like the results.

Yes Luvs I spinkle salt into my coffee before brewing. Have done it for years and if I forget to do it I can taste the difference. Sometimes, like this morning I sprinkle ground cinnamin in my coffee before brewing.

My in-laws did that every time they made coffee. I never noticed one bit of difference exept that maybe the coffee tasted salty. I was never able to understand why salt would cut bitterness. Maybe if your coffee is bitter, you should try another brand.

I have tried it but not to get rid of bitterness. I was trying to make the coffee more flavorful and the salt did make a welcome difference. If you perceive your coffee to be lacking try just a little. You will probably like it.

With just a dash of salt to a whole pot of coffee is not going to make your coffee taste salt or be unhealthy!

This is an old trick for percolators that sat around at parties for hours. I've never heard of using salt if you are drinking the coffee reasonably quickly...

Salt in coffee??? Not in my coffee, but thank you...I buy green coffee beans and roast them to be flavorful, not bitter.
