Ever wonder why you hate coffee, but your roommates drink multiple cups a day? Well, look no further than this post inspired by that exact experience!
According to a study conducted at Northwestern University, those with a greater genetic predisposition for tasting the bitterness drank more coffee compared to a reduction in coffee drinking when the bitter taste of quinine and propylthiouracil were able to be better perceived. Because of these findings, researchers believe this is an indication that drinking coffee is learned since a bitter taste should usually lead people to think something shouldn't be consumed. Due to the stimulant properties in caffeine, coffee drinkers likely continue their habit of imbibing this bitter liquid. Though I will never understand why people push past the taste or for some reason LIKE it, I will overlook it, but actually, I won't and I will continue to sip on my tea with its lower concentration of bitterness and silently judge you.
So who's team are you on? Coffee or tea?
