    bitter coffee yuk

    I have been having problems with brewing. no matter the bean, my coffee has been very bitter of late. I have a cuisineart drip maker, and i generally grind the beans the night before, let thim sit in the hopper all night, and flip on the switch in the morning.

    I use brita purified water, and have even tried taking out the charcoal fliter from my maker. I clean the maker once a month w/vinegar and run 2 karafs of water through it afterward. I get my beans from a local roaster

    any ideas?

    and could anyone describe the proper grind density my beans should be at for a drip coffe maker? how big are the grinds?

    You shouldn't grind you coffee the night before....do this...grind your coffee and let it sit for a couple of hours...smell it..it will smell flat. Coffee does not do will when left out in the open. Grind it and brew it as quickly as possible
