How do I make the coffee?
Water represents 98% of every cup, therefore we recommend you use cold bottled or filtered water. Do not use distilled or softened water as it impairs the flavor. Use 2 tablespoons of ground for each 6 ounce cup of coffee. (Using too few grounds can actually make it taste bitter! Never boil coffee it adds bitterness! Do not reuse coffee grounds once they have been brewed. To serve: Drink the coffee within 20 minutes of brewing for the best flavor and aroma. Letting it sit over 20 minutes impairs the flavor.
