How’s your sweet tooth, coffee drinkers?

Scientists in Denmark have discovered something rather unusual about drinking coffee. A recent study in the country has shown that drinking regular or even decaf coffee makes the drinker more sensitive to sweet flavours.

The small-scale study of just 156 participants doesn’t make the study conclusive, but certainly one that demands more investigation in the future.

The researchers found no link between coffee and “olfactory sensitivity”, which is interesting in and of itself, so decided to concentrate on taste, or “gustatory sensitivity”.

“Our results demonstrate that coffee (regular and decaffeinated) alters the subsequent perception of taste,” wrote the actual scientists, “specifically by increasing the sensitivity to sweet and decreasing the sensitivity to bitter.”
