You either think in crazy or know what I'm talking about. Navy coffee it's called and no I was never in the navy I was in the Air Force.
One day a friend told me that his grandfather only used salt in his coffee and he shoved some in my coffee one late night at a diner after having a few beers at the local pub. To my surprise I loved it! It brought out the true flavor of the coffee. What had happened was the old navy ships used to get salt in their water supply and of course you make coffee with the ships water supply so the coffee was salty and the men liked it black so when they came home off the ship the "normal" coffee tasted like crap to them so they put salt in it . A dark roast or normal blend of coffe and I drink it black with salt. If its a sweet blend I use a tiny but of sugar and no salt.
How many others of you drink it this way ? Or am I the only nut case here?
Btw I have also tried my coffee with Texas Pete which is good at certain times as well.
