Beating the Bitter Taste
The human tongue registers bitter tastes 10,000 times more strongly than sweet tastes. So when you are in the field it is always advisable to carry strong spices to cover up tastes that may be unacceptable to your particular palate. I always take along things like chipolte, and curry. If you do not have any spices and you have coffee, put some grounds in your soup and it will take away the bitter taste and you will not taste the coffee either.
