The next time you enjoy a cup of coffee, try it alone, in a quiet area. A new study suggests that coffee is best enjoyed in areas that are noise free and peaceful.
The study was conducted by Universidad de las Americas, based in Quito, Ecuador. The participants were asked to drink coffee with headphones on, listening to high volume noise, while another set were asked to drink the coffee listening to lower volume noise.
The researchers found that people preferred less noise, and that they enjoyed their coffee more as a result.
So, the next time you are at a cafe or coffee shop and it is a bit noisy, consider heading into a quiet area and see if that affects your taste and the way you enjoy your coffee. Be sure to let us know your own findings!
