Here's my dilema:
I have a Cuisinart "Grind & Brew" machine. I live off of Starbucks beans. I have absolutely no luck in making quality coffee in my current machine. I always use 2tbsp. or beans to 6oz. of water that is cold and has been through my brita filter. The result is coffee that tastes over extracted. I just can't figure it out. I waste so much coffee experimenting with this friggin' machine and at $11 per pound it really adds up. :evil:
I prefer Starbucks house blend. I have an old piece of junk Mr. Coffee unit that for some reason, (god only knows) makes a killer pot of coffee. It is very rich and smooth.
Does anyone have any ideas why my new fancy machine makes a cup of brown vinegar?
