Here’s how to make the perfect cup of coffee…Coffee Tip #1- Make sure your coffee pot is clean.
A clean coffee pot is essential and will make a world of difference in how your coffee ultimately tastes. An unclean coffee pot has residual coffee oils that remain from the previous batches of coffee. There are also other coffee chemicals and materials such as pieces of coffee grounds which can decompose and cause some bad flavors. It’s not likely such small amounts will make you sick, but there’s a good chance your coffee will taste “a little off”.
Be careful about using a whole lot of soap unless you’re sure to remove any remaining residue, following a good wash and rinse with some baking soda and water to neutralize any remaining acids and coffee oil.
