I am not a coffee expert, but I know coffee is not supposed to be bitter. I did some research and found out that bitter coffee has a few origins:
The first and most common cause of bitter coffee is bad coffee grounds. Coffee grounds come from coffee beans – the heart of coffee!
In the same way, the origin of bitterness in a person’s life comes from a bitter heart. You will only be able to get rid of the bitterness if you go back to your heart!
The second cause of bitter coffee is when you keep coffee on a hot plate; the boiling will actually result in a bitter taste.
If we don’t “cool down” after an angry spell, we actually give the devil a foothold in our lives for bitterness:
26 “In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, 27 and do not give the devil a foothold.
Now something that you most probably did not know – one way to remove the bitter taste of your coffee is by simply adding some salt! I’ve never tried it, but it is apparently very effective!
So the best way to remove bitterness in your life is to simply add some salt to your heart! Salt usually brings out the best flavors in food. By adding salt to your heart you allow your heart to focus on the best, not the worst.
50 Salt is good for seasoning. But if it loses its flavor, how do you make it salty again? You must have the qualities of salt among yourselves and live in peace with each other.”
Bitter coffee, just as bitter Christians, leaves a bad after taste. Add some salt and live in peace!
