After pouring a morning cup of coffee, most people reach for the sugar bowl and milk or cream. The brave go without either. However, there is another common kitchen product that can be added to your coffee: salt.
Although it may seem like an unwelcome and foreign concept at first, salt is actually the perfect compliment to any coffee lover's cup of joy. Salt has the ability to cut the bitterness of coffee and "neutralize" its acidic nature. As a result, the coffee becomes smoother.
But don't limit yourself to just adding salt to regular coffee--you can also add it to espresso! Be sure to add small amounts of salt into your coffee at a time and to taste it frequently. There is a sweet spot between too much and too little salt (no pun intended). For every six tablespoons of coffee grounds, a quarter teaspoon of salt is recommended. "Just A Pinch" will do the trick!
We recommend our Just A Pinch Simply Sea Salt as the perfect partner for your next cup of coffee. Check out the following to find your preferred method of purchasing your own jar of Just A Pinch Sea Salt blends today, and then look for this delicious recipe for Sea Salt Cream Iced Coffee!

There are a bunch of ways to get nice, cold coffee. There are an abundance of cold brew methods and devices out there now. Many of them will produce some of the tastiest cold coffee. Our go-to is to use about double the amount of coffee grinds, and then make a pot of pour-over coffee directly onto about 1 1/2 cups of ice. However, if needed, it will work just fine to save your leftover hot coffee and let it cool off completely before icing (otherwise you'll get watered down coffee).We love to use simple syrup to sweeten our chilled drinks, and it is something easy to have on hand. Just heat and dissolve together an equal amount of sugar and water. Allow to cool and store in the fridge until ready to use. However with enough stirring (or if you add the sugar while the coffee is hot) you can always just use regular sugar for this recipe.
