Adding salt and/or sugar to coffee grinds = Tastier Coffee?
Some people say to add salt, others swear by sugar and there are others who add both. Is there any truth to this? Have you compared results? It makes sense since you're balancing the bitterness, but I think it also has to do with the amount of coffee grinds added. A lot of people tend to add too much.
