||Some people enjoy the bitter quality of coffee; some wish it were a tad less bitter.
The level of bitterness in coffee is a result of the bean variety, how it is processed and roasted, the brewing method, temperature and the chemical content of the water.
If you’d like a less bitter cup, here are some tips from the Coffee Research Institute:
- Buy a medium-roast arabica coffee, brew using a drip system and try a coarser grind.
- Don’t use distilled water. While logic might say it makes better coffee, hard and soft water have chemicals that cancel out the bitterness.
