    LOL! It is easy to overthink this, right? Just put the filter in the basket and fill with water...no grounds until after you pour out the water or allow the water to drain out! Now you can be just as non OCD as me!

    Like Mr.Peaberry, I rinse my paper coffee filters. My recollection is that I started doing this many years ago because the instructions with a coffeemaker recommended doing so.

    Rinsing your filters DOES make a difference... if you want proof... runs some hot water over your filter and try the 'filter water'

    On the Technivorm website, in answer to a question about the necessity of making a full pot each time when brewing with the Grand model coffeemakers, was the following:


    ďThe flat-bottom, commercial type, brew-basket (filter), needs sufficient coffee bed depth and water ratio to assure essential saturation and extraction."


    That suggests, at least, that conical brew-baskets are necessary to achieve sufficient coffee bed depths with smaller volumes of coffee.

    There is no shortage of obsession in the coffee industry.
