  • Page 26: Coffee Brewing Suggestions: Advice For Great Taste

    COFFEE BREWING The flavor of coffee depends on a variety of factors, including the quality, freshness, and roast of the beans, the fineness and consistency of the grind, the ratio of coffee to brew water, the cleanliness of the brewing equipment, and the brew water purity.
  • Page 27 A proper grind is critical for good coffee, and that means using a ® quality burr grinder like the PRO LINE Series Burr Coffee Mill or the KitchenAid ® Model A-9™ Coffee Mill. A good burr grinder will produce an extremely consistent grind with little frictional heating, and preserve the full flavor of your coffee.
  • Page 28 COFFEE BREWING SUGGESTIONS: ADVICE FOR GREAT TASTE Coffee Maker Cleanliness Coffee oils build up quickly within the brew basket and carafe. Over time, these oils will go stale and taint the flavor of freshly brewed coffee. Daily cleaning of the brew basket, brew basket insert, and carafe is strongly recommended for the best-tasting coffee.
