Two tips for making your daily cuppa joe taste better:

1. Coffee only keeps for 15 to 20 minutes before beginning to lose its flavor. So drink up! To keep coffee hot for a longer time, pour it into a thermos. Don't reheat coffee if you can avoid it--that destroys the flavor.

2. It is very important that you wash your coffee maker pot and filter container thoroughly at least once a week. Bitter oils stick to both of them. Just rinsing with water is not enough--your coffee will start to taste bad. Instead, wash both thoroughly with plenty of soap, and you'll see the flavor improve dramatically.

Tip of The Day features ideas I hear about--not always ones I've tried. They sound good to me in theory and who knows--some of them (hopefully most of them) may be brilliant. Anyway, the point of this thread is to start some fun conversations. By all means jump in and add jokes, comments, and even your own tips, if you'd like.

Good tip Nomrie.

I also like to add a few sprinkles of cinnamon before brewing.

I hate stale coffee. Always drink it freshly brewed or not at all.

Soaking the pot in bleach and washing it in hot soapy water makes it sparkling clean. Running vinegar through the coffee brewer keeps the water minerals cleaned out, too.

I don't mess with my wife's coffee maker. When she does make me a cup (rarely ask for it) I add enough hot chocolate powder I don't know if she cleaned the coffee maker or not. She keeps a bottle of white vinegar by it for some reason.
