There’s a new coffee shop in the Twin Cities. Its brew comes with bitters in it, even though bitters are more commonly thought of as an ingredient for cocktails, not java. Furthermore, the coffee you can get at Five Watt is bought directly from a roaster based in Wisconsin.
Bitters usually bring one thing to mind: an Old Fashioned cocktail. But it’s not just about cocktails anymore. Bitters are also used in sodas, food, even cotton candy.
