More tips for an even better brew

-Rinse the paper with hot water before you start brewing, this is to remove any possible paper taste and also to heat the filter holder.

-If your coffee gets an obvious bitter taste, try grinding the coffee slightly coarser next time for a better result.

-If your coffee starts tasting sour, try grinding the coffee slightly finer to extract more sweetness and bitterness from the coffee and balance the cup.

-Keep in mind to never let the coffee dry out during the brewing, always pour new water over the coffee before the old has run through completely.

-Avoid poring on the sides, work towards including all the coffee in the brewing.
