So let’s take the fun out of coffee

How do we do that? We look at “A chemistry teacher’s guide to the perfect cup of coffee.” Sure there is science to putting the ingredients together but would you go to this extreme?

The article starts out talking about coffee bitterness and how adding a little salt may help counteract the bitterness. Then it goes on to figure out a better way. They get very precise about the coffee to water balance. It goes on about brewing time, temperature, type of coffee, type of grinding, milk and sugar in coffee.

If you are into the actual science behind a cup of coffee, this may be a good read for you.
