No good title here…

Coffee drinker?

Ever have it taste bitter? Want a bit of flavor added?

Sprinkle a touch of cinnamon on the grounds before brewing. It cuts the bitter and tastes yummy (very subtle taste).

Works for me.

    I’ve done that! It is yummy! I usually also add a touch of nutmeg, but just a touch.

    Thats sound much better than my Grandmothers advise. She put a egg shell in with the grounds. Said it removed the bitter taste?

    I love coffee! Thanks for the tip. I wonder what else you could add to naturally flavor it without adding in a lot of extras.

    Now this is definitely something worth trying! I love my coffee, and I think cinnamon would add a nice touch.

  5. How on earth did you find that out? I’ve been drinking coffee for eons and never knew that – will give it a try tomorrow morning – thanks!

    Add a sprinkle or two of salt in with your grounds and that will also take care of the bitterness without adding any flavor. I love the touch of cinnamon though, always makes me feel special…(hey, we don’t have a starbucks here)

    Some of the best round-flavored coffe I’ve had is from First Watch daytime cafe (a killer breakfast joint!)in Naples, FL and Cinninnati, OH…I think they put a touch of cinnamon and cocoa in it to make it taste good (but not enough to really taste the ingredients themselves)… Oh I so wish we had a First Watch here in Nashville.

    Really good coffee…Oh and the breakfasts aren’t too bad either…

    It’s quite foggy up here on the hill in West Nashville this morning.

    Mmmm…cinnamon! I love it in my coffee too! Also great in hot chocolate and brownies!

    What a good idea! I never would’ve thought to do that. :)

  14. Great (and yummy) tip!
    …a drop of vanilla in the water works too!

  18. yum!

  19. I will try it. Sounds great and we do have similar taste in chocolate so I trust you.
