For the last couple of days we drug out an old one for a temporary solution.(Very bad coffee)...got to find something soon
While I am not a coffee snob I do appreciate good coffee.
I don't like Starbucks...tastes burnt to me.
I prefer to brew my own.
So I started doing some research...since all I new was pour water in buy good coffee and voila!
What makes a good cup of coffee?
- Water temperature is key here - you want it between 195F-204F for optimal extraction.
- Good Coffee - order online ~the stuff in the store is a couple of weeks old
- Use filtered water

What am I looking for?
I don't want one of those make a cup at a time.
I don't want a ginormous machine to take up the whole counter.
I want simple.
So after doing my research I had decided to become a coffee geek and go with a french coffee press.
For me this involved buying a coffee press and an electric water kettle.
The more I thought about it this would not work with my morning schedule of coming down stairs and have coffee waiting. I don't know that I could deal with all the steps to make the coffee in a press....but I do want to try it some day.
Took my Facebook friends recommendation and headed to the Target this morning and purchased a Bunn.
Since it has a water tank in the back the water comes out at 200 degrees (optimum temp for brewing).
Also the way the Bunn sprays water over the grounds is for optimum flavor.
