Hand pouring a cup of coffee
The Easy Extra Step For Better Tasting Home-Brewed Coffee
To enhance your morning cup of joe, you’ll want to follow a simple step that most people don’t even think about: pre-rinsing the dry paper filter.
Few realize that unrinsed filters alter the taste of coffee. When water passes through a dry filter, it can impart a papery, sometimes even chlorinated flavor into your coffee.
Before brewing, nestle the paper filter in the filter basket and douse it in hot water. This cleanses the filter of any unwanted flavor notes or debris.
Even amid a busy morning, pre-soaking the coffee filter quickly elevates the coffee-drinking experience. It's an easy addition to any coffee routine that anybody can adopt.
