There’s nothing worse than forking out your hard-earned cash at a coffee shop, only to find your beverage tastes bitter. 

Thankfully, there’s a nifty little trick that can help combat the problem. 

According to VinePair, a pinch of salt can reduce the bitterness of coffee, helping to give it a more mellow flavour overall.

“Now, we aren’t suggesting you throw spoonfuls of sodium into your next bitter cup of coffee,” they wrote.

“But simply adding a pinch, whether to cup or grounds, will take the edge off.

“Anything more than a pinch and you’ll be salivating at the saltiness of your now-worse coffee.”

Scientists wrote in the journal Nature that sodium ions suppress the bitterness of food and drink. 

So next time you’ve got a duff cup of Joe, try out this trick and let us know how you get on.
