He just threw them in after cracking them for scrambled eggs or pancakes.

Mind you, his salt-use jives with kleinbl00's coworker's salt-use origin. Gramps was a cook in the Coast Guard. He didn't add the salt to the coffee itself, but to the grounds.

I'm not saying that you are going to have a great cup of coffee. But, it takes the edge off Maxwell House.

My assumption about the eggshell/salt combo is that calcium carbonate/sodium chloride combo make sodium bicarbonate, which in turn raises the pH. Just a guess.

If I'm correct, you could get the same effect from baking soda. If anyone drinks shitty coffee, please try and report back. My taste is far too refined.
