Auto Brew (drip) is the coffee maker most commonly found in households. Although we don't recommend this type of brewer unless it's a Technivorm, we have some recommendations that will help you make the best possible coffee. The key to getting great results are using fresh high quality beans, getting the correct grind with a burr grinder, and a clean filter.
Measure out the correct amount of water to the ratio of coffee that you will be using. We recommend 3 tablespoons to 10 oz of water.
Put the water in the coffee maker (without the coffee) and brew. This will preheat your water.
After your water is done brewing, grind your coffee. The correct grind will be slightly larger than the size of table salt.
Put the coffee inside your filter basket and use the preheated water to start brewing, this way you will have eliminated the dilemma of not having hot enough water, which ensures that your coffee is not underextracted. Underextraction brings out sour, flat flavor characteristics.
After brewing, pour into your favorite cup and enjoy.
