Question about West Bend 55108 Espresso/coffee Maker
Someone tell me how to get the perfect cup (pot) of coffee with this thing. i've had it over a year and i can't seem to get the combination just right. i've even tried different types of coffee....help....
When I brew coffee, I use a mild to medium columbian roast. I then use one tablespoon of coffee grounds for ea 2 cups of water as marked on the pot. The measure of coffee is the same whether you use the ground or the whole bean.
I always use fresh filtered water. Chlorine, flouride, and any other ingredient in the water affects the flavor of the coffee.
I stay away from the french roasts & dark roasts. they are very bitter and frequently taste like ashtray to me.
I assume that the coffee pot uses a 6 oz measure of water for their one cup of coffee.
I frequently check the drip area for coffee sludge buildup. That also affects the coffee flavor if the coffee sits at all.
Hope this helps
