Looking for a little help with my recent (1 year) horrible coffee - Page 2

Coffee preparation techniques besides espresso like pourover.

Curious if you've tried coffee from a cafe yet?

I've experienced something similar where coffee tasted flat with little flavor. Almost like bitter water. This was at home and several shops. I took a month break from coffee and refine sugars which really helped bring the flavor back.

That's on my list, and I've definitely been considering the break from coffee even though I really don't want to. I have a feeling that will help but I'm still perturbed that I can't make a decent cup, especially because I was able to so easily before.

Also, you hit the nail on the head, it's just bitter water across all my coffees.

Have you tried cupping the coffees? Have you drank any (decent-good quality) tea recently?

I have not. Also, not a huge fan of tea.

Well, you used to be a huge fan of coffee... maybe your tastes are changing? It does happen.

Any chance during covid your coffee intake increased by a few cups?

Nope, always just one a day, in the morning. Although, recently I've had to dump out a few cups and remake them until it's passable.
