Why does my coffee taste stale, even when it's freshly brewed? I'm using a decent enough coffee...
pot - A Hamilton Beach Brew Station - and I've tried lots of different coffees.
Do you wash your coffee pot? Don't, only rinse it with water. Also the filter you use can affect the taste of the coffee. Pay a couple bucks more for good filters and use distilled water to make your coffee with.
northweststarr is right. The water is very important. That will make the biggest difference in taste. A gold filter should help, also. I prefer freshly ground coffee. You can get a grinder cheap, and then just buy the whole beans. But, I think the reason the coffee would taste stale is the water.
Thanks, guys. I bet it's that I'm not cleaning good enough. The part that holds the filter has a lot of small grooves in it and it's really hard to get between the ridges. The dishwasher has died so I'm washing by hand
I find keeping your coffee beans or grains in the fridge or freezer also helps it keep it's freshness.
Im and ex-barista. There's four things to consider:
-Grind of coffee
-proportion of coffee grounds to water
-storage of grounds (air-tight container is best)
