Can someone recommend how they make their coffee?
I just bought this coffee maker, and I LOVE it! But, I'm having a hard time making a good cup of coffee. I know it's not the maker itself, because I've always struggled with making a good cup of coffee. I really like the Dunkin Donuts brand of coffee, but any suggestions at all would be great! THANK YOU!

This coffee maker has a flaw and it does not heat the water to optimal temperature. If just does not get hot enough to get the right flavor from any coffee

I use the common method of 2 Tbsp's, (1/8 cup) to 6 oz water. I also use medium to dark roast coffee. It's all a matter of what you prefer.

Try Maxwell House French Roast and try upping the amount of coffee you use . If you don't put enough coffee in it , it will make a lousy cup of coffee . The more the merrier .
To me, there is nothing worse than weak coffee (I jokingly tell people that would rather drink hot water - ha!)
I am NOT a big fan of DD coffee, but that said, If use the scoop that came with the coffeemaker, 1 suggest 1 rounded scoop per number of cups to be brewed - if you are only brewing 2 cups or less, I suggest making those heaping scoops. (if the coffee is too strong, you can always add a little water.)
You might like Maxwell House FRENCH ROAST, as I think it is great coffee for the money! Good luck!
I tried 3 scoops. It came out very good.
Buy a coffee scoop, sold at most stores, and use one scoop per two cups of water. I usually make 8 cups in the morning, and with 4 (full) scoops of coffee grounds, this always makes wonderful coffee.
