I found the solution!
It was the plastic Melitta cone that I was using. Apparently it was contributing to the horrible taste.
I ordered a Cuissential SlickDrip which is a silicone cone. It does not absorb odors like the plastic ones and it's collapsible!
My coffee tastes great again!
Thank you everyone!

awesome!!!!! maybe you should try French Press this time... No need for filters and no plastics or silicone to mess with... But I am glad you found the source of problem.....

Yes, that's a good idea too! Glass is probably better.

I don't think french press is the best way to brew your coffee but it sure beats in convenience and preparation time. I would never trade my french press for any other brewing devices......

Hello, coffee comrades!
My first coffee love happened at Torrefazione (prior to Starbucks) in Northwest Portland in the early 90's. The whole cafe was open to the bustle of the city on a spring morning and I had three shots of the most creamy espresso, with subtle hints of caramel, served in the most delicate and vibrant porcelain cups. I love the ritual of coffee and the way it brings people together - from family to strangers, communities & even across languages.
For the next decade (plus) my prose and stories were best fueled from the french press. And about six years ago, I joined Raven's Brew Coffee (a wholesale specialty coffee roaster born in Alaska) and began to peak through the vast windows into the coffee world, of which I had no clue were so infinite...
Now I deem myself "many ravens" of this great little company and thought I should check out the buzz in here! Cheers!
