- - I might suggest that it is your personal techniques that are yielding the great coffee rather than the machine. However, some machines are down right horrible no matter what your technique.
- - First, good beans - ground - not chopped. Then proper temperature water
and finally only the proper length of time brewing that is your success. As with the Brit's and there fanatic addition to proper tea, the temperature of the water and the limit on the brewing time goes most of the way to prevent the acidic build-up.
