What is it about a fresh pot of Coffee that makes it taste so good. Or should I ask, what is it about the pot that someone else made that tastes so bad? Are they using too many grinds (i.e. 2 packs)? not enough grinds (half a pack?). Do I just have the magic touch when it comes to brewing a fresh pot?
I know that the water temperature and brew times are the same because the coffee machine we have doesn’t allow for any adjustments, but the National Coffee Association seems to have the answer.
According to their web site, “Brewed coffee should be consumed immediately after brewing. They note that a pot sitting on the burner for even 15 minutes will begin to develop a burned taste. I like their recommendation about pouring it into an insolated thermos. I’ll have to pick up a good large insulated cup to keep my brew warm.
In the meantime, let me know when you brew a pot and I’ll help you finish it!
