This morning I extended my initial brew time by 30 seconds for a 4:30 brew time before scooping off the foam and floating grinds. A little more mold than usual, which I liked. I'm going to add another 30 seconds to mae it 5 minutes the next time and see how it comes out. I'll keep an eye out for any added bitterness and dial back the brew time if necessary.

Before we give up on Keurig - I discovered a hack that greatly improves the taste. I have mentioned it elsewhere in the forums.

You need the kind of Keurig that you put the water in for each cup, so you have total control over everything. Measure 6 OZ of water for each keurig cup. If you are making a mug of coffee make two keurigs of 6 OZ of water each.

I had gotten used to the keurigs that measure the water themselves, and they make mug of coffee but with only one K cup. So the coffee gets kind of lame.

A measured 6 OZ of water per K cup and you will be delighted how good the coffee is.
