The secret is to make sure you’re getting good coffee. I think a lot of people really underestimate the difference between a chain coffee shop vs. a local coffee shop. If I get coffee from Starbucks, I have to add milk and sugar because their beans taste too burnt for me (Has anyone ever actually noticed the tasting notes on a bag of Starbucks beans?). On the other hand, it’s easier to acquire the taste for coffee if you go to a decent third-wave specialty roaster, where their roasts are often lighter than mass-produced beans. I use Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and that shit straight-up tastes like blueberries, not coffee.
What changed it for me was realizing that bitter is just a taste like any other, and there’s nothing inherently “bad” about bitter taste. things that are too bitter don’t taste good, but that applies for the rest of the tastes too. I don’t like things that are too sour or too sweet either. You should try and find some good light roasted coffee. It can often be closer to tea in its taste. Kenyan and Ethiopian coffee that has been dried with the fruit. Tastes miles better than what your mom (most probably) serves.
