Not a fan of bitterness in your coffee?
Add salt. Yes, you heard us correctly...salt. Salt can reduce coffee bitterness. Koffee Kult coffee should not be bitter when brewed, but adding a pinch of salt to your coffee when brewing it can result in a smoother cup of coffee.
Struggle to keep your coffee fresh?
For the freshest cup of coffee possible, you want to grind your coffee beans right before you brew. Koffee Kult bags are the best place to store your beans. You can also place it in an airtight canister. Remember to store your beans in a cool, dry, dark space.
All water is NOT the same!
Filtered water tastes differently and will absolutely affect the taste of your coffee. Tap water contains more impurities, and can leave your coffee with a metallic or acidic taste. For a purer tasting cup of coffee, try using filtered or bottled water.
On the other hand, filtered water also possesses several other minerals that can leave it with hard or soft properties. These additional properties will also affect the taste of your coffee. “Hard” water is not actually solid. Instead, the “hardness” of water refers to the additional calcium and magnesium minerals that can be found in the water.
