If you pour a cup of coffee before the pot is finished brewing, is that cup going to be stronger?
....or is every cup within that pot taste the same? It's kind of a Zen-esque coffee question for the caffinated Hubbers out there.
The first cup is stronger if you remove it before it's done brewing. Actually, I think doing this makes the coffee taste better (if you like it stronger), but it makes the rest of the pot weaker.
I'm a coffee addict lol and Iove my coffee neither too strong, nor too weak. Many times have I poured myself a cup before the pot was done and it has been each time a big mistake. The first cup was horribly strong for my taste. So don't do the same mistake, it's worth waiting a few minutes for the pot to be completely ready to serve.
Yes, it will.
There is a measured amount of coffee and water, most machines are programmed to time the brewing process.
When you interrupt that timing, you have altered the "recipe".
It is the same reason that boiled tea needs to "seep".
I am going to answer on the assumption that caffiene, like other things, in suspension in water will eventually settle to the lower level of the pot the longer the coffee sits. Thus, if you get a cup in the brewing cycle, you probably get a higher dose than someone who waits. But, keep in mind, based on this argument, you could return several hours later when the pot was bottomed out and get a "real cup" of coffee drinking all the caffiene that had settled to the bottom. it's just a theory! LOL! WB
Such wise coffee professionals among us:) Yes, it is best to allow the pot to finish brewing; however, you should then pour the coffee in an Air pot to keep it at a nice temperature and to keep it from cooking and burning in the pot. Some of those elements get so hot, they will boil your coffee. Burning toast is a waste but burnt coffee is really a bad sign of how your day is starting off.... hahaha
Oh yeah! It's always that little kick that you need to jump start your morning!

Trying to live frugally I have tried to use my Keurig machine in a frugal manner and squeeze a second cup of coffee out of the K-Cup. I have found the second cup of tea tastes great but the coffee on the second try is horrible.Have you tried this?Is this enough money for you to switch to tea over...
