Does MSG enhance espresso?
Jan visited me and he brought a bag of fine MSG which is used in many kitchens to enhance the taste of food. Would this work in espresso as well, Jan wondered so we set out to try with 0.3g of MSG in 30g of excellent espresso. Could it get any better? No it couldn't. It tasted as if some anchovies had been kept in the cup for a night and then some espresso poured over it. Yikes! But fun all the same.
