Tuesday's Tip

Pin It
Do you sip or drink coffee all day long like I do?  It is one of my bad habits.  A pot of coffee is made in the morning and I sip it throughout the day.  I am the only one who drinks it so It sits on the warmer or in the thermos, waiting for me to grab another cup.  


Do you ever notice if coffee sits too long it begins to get bitter?  Well my Mom taught me a trick to keep that from happening.......the secret ingredient?




Salt.


When you make your coffee in the morning, sprinkle a bit of salt on the grounds before you brew it and you will never have bitter coffee no matter how long it sits there.


Remember to give your loved ones a hug!

  1. Great tip. My parents always added salt. I thought it was for the taste.

  3. Debbie, great tip. I'm going to try it tomorrow at work. My boss drinks her coffee all day and I never want to because of how it tastes as it sits. I'm gonna have to ask my mom if she ever used this trick. She was a huge coffee drinker all her life. She is 94 and just gave it up some years back. Thanks for stopping in at Quirky Vistas and leaving me a nice note. Glad I found you.

  4. PS: I was reading your profile. I'm interested in hearing about you all getting off the grid and living a slower, simpler life. Would love to read about your adventures in so doing.

  8. Get out! As a mom of five, the coffee doesn't sit very long, but when if for some reason it does, it won't be bitter. Yay! Thanks for the great tip.
