How to Fix Bitter Coffee

Bitter Coffee? If you purchase fresh-roasted, high-quality coffee beans, a bitter cup will usually be due to your equipment or method. But please do not take this personally. Brewing a great cup is an art, and every art is honed with a bit of fine-tuning. This, after all, is part of the coffee experience. Dive in. Use these 4 simple strategies to narrow down the cause of your bitter cup. Try one variation at a time over the next 4 days, without compounding the changes. 

Day 1 - Clean your brewing equipment, thoroughly.

Day 2 - Reduce the amount of grounds you use by a teaspoon or so.

Day 3 - Use a slightly coarser grind.

Day 4 - Reduce brewing time by 1 to 2 minutes.
