With my lovely son waking me up at 6:30am I had an early opportunity to try my salted coffee.
As you can see, all the grains were absorbed into the brewing process.
With my favorite mug in hand, I cautiously and eagerly poured my first cup (black).
With the first sip, I did notice a slight reduction of bitterness, but what really made an impact was the aftertaste. After drinking a couple of sips down, I notice that there wasn't the usual odd burnt tail that usually accompanies auto-drip style coffee, and the overall experience is much more well-rounded and satisfying. Please keep in mind that I was already using 100% Kona Extra Fancy (my 2nd fave bean) but even the improvement to this was noticeable.
So what does this mean? For now, I need to experiment more and find where the salinity breakpoint is by increasing the salt a few grains each day.
