Would You Drink This Salty Coffee?

In the past few years, we've seen savory cheesecake and salted caramels take over the gourmet food scene. So could salty coffee be far behind?

Time reports that Taiwan's number one coffeehouse, 85C Bakery Cafe, introduced a sea-salt coffee that's been topping its sales charts. The sweetened coffee has a thick foam that's imbued with the flavor of sea salt.

Tell me: Do you think this sounds more appetizing than a hot smoothie?

My initial thought was, "doubtful", but then I realized I like quite a few sweet/salty things so Yes, I would try it once.

No, I don't eat foods with added salt (or added sugar).

I wonder if it would taste sort of like Chubby Hubby ice cream, with the pretzels in it. I love salty/sweet combos, so I'd probably give it a try.

I drink shots of espresso with no sugar in them and when they're made well, they usually have a bit of a salty character to them. I think it'd be lovely.

I don't drink coffee, but my parents have been adding a pinch of salt to their home brewed coffee ever since I can remember. Can't be all that bad.

Salt's natural ability to accentuate both food and beverage is indisputable. Salt makes simple ingredients shine and when paired with classic cocktails, makes you salvate and want another sip. For a unique range of flavored salts to finish dishes, take a peak: I'm not surprised that salt and coffee make a wonderful marriage.

i would be willing to try it - i know that salt can enhance the flavors of a lot of things so this could be ok too.

Ooh, I'd totally try that. I'm not into really salty things, but if it's all on the top and only sea salt I think it might be very good.

With these polls, the "Previous Story" and "Next Story" buttons are so big that they overshadow the "Vote" button. I continuously miss it.

Who knew that Starbucks salted carmel hot chocolate would be as incredibly awesome as it is? So I'd bet this would be good too.

ugh.. the thought of it makes me gag.. I love my sweet coffee. :( but I guess I'd try it. If it's selling they might be on to something.

i read about this also, and i think they reasoned that by drinking all the salt first, it'll enliven your taste buds even more for the sweetness of the coffee afterward. it's like when you add salt to desserts to bring out their sweetness.
