Step 1: Clean Your Coffee Maker
You Think it's clean but it's not! clean it again
Oil, makes future cups bitter and rancid
Step 2: Use Freshly Roasted Coffee
Fresh-roasted coffee is essential to a quality cup so buy your coffee in SMALL AMOUNTS check out this coffee subscription box
Step 3: Grind It Like a Boss
Always grind your beans as close to the brew time as possible burr or mill grinder is best because the coffee is ground to a consistent size The size of the grind is HUGELY important If your coffee taste bitter, the grind is too fine If your coffee taste flat, the grind might be too coarse.
For the best result use a burr grinder and not a blade grinder. Blade grinders burn the beans in the process while burr grinders crash them without burning them. I recommend using Bodum Bistro Electric Burr Coffee Grinder
Step 4: Add Water
Use filtered or bottled water if your tap water is not good or has a strong odor or taste maintain a water temperature
between 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal extraction.
Colder water will result in flat, under-extracted coffee, while water that is too hot will also cause a loss of quality in the taste of the coffee
