I was very young when these appeared.

I do remember that my mom was on the Mr. Coffee bandwagon from the earliest days.

Quote
Prior to this machine, coffee was primarily made in a percolator which often gave it a bitter and burned flavor. The new Mr. Coffee machine produced a much more uniform brewing temperature which resulted in a much better flavor.


Still though, the form factor for percolators is much more attractive than the Mr. Coffee machine and the Keurig and most other coffee makers.

I hope this potentially controversial opinion of mine does not tear this forum apart.

A .45ACP 1911 goes with a properly made pot of coffee. If you're gonna get a Mr Coffee, get a Glock.  grin

.

My parents had a percolator up until I graduated from college. I remember when the percolator died and my mom calling me to ask me what brand my coffee maker was because she wasn't going to spend $50 a replacement. My parents only owned 2 perculators since they got married, 1st one was a wedding gift and the 2nd one appeared in the mid 80s when the first one died. They always said that coffee wasn't as good out of a "instant" coffee maker compared to a percolator. I was quite shocked when they said they were making the switch.

I've never liked coffee out of a drip coffee maker, it always tastes bitter & burnt to me.  For years I used a peculator to make my coffee despite an unfortunate event between eight month old me and one.  About 10 years ago I switched to a french press for my coffee and never looked back.

Sadly it looks like I have to give up coffee entirely since it seems to be a triggering sudden rotational vertigo.   Oh well.

I'm not a coffee drinker.

Dad is. But he commits what all of you'll would consider the ultimate coffee sin and has no shame (and no taste buds)

He drinks generic brand instant coffee.

I won't talk about instant coffee, because it isn't, but for generic real coffee Walmart store brand is a decent and low acid choice. Better than charbucks. But then again so is Sheetz coffee, or just plain dirty dishwater.

You aren't fooling me.

You would drink the dirty dish water to get your fix if you had to.

French press FTW.

I recently broke my glass container for my Bodum french press, but was gifted a Stanley one as a replacement.  It's Stanley puke green like the thermoses and it is mildly insulated to keep coffee warm.

It is my precious.

My Grandparents made coffee in one of those all glass, aluminum interior, percolators for years. It would sit on the stove on warm most of the day while Grandma and Grandpa worked on it.

Grandpa was particularly impervious to bad coffee. He had been a career railroader and there was alway a big percolator of coffee sitting on the stove in the caboose and, often, a big container of brewed coffee in the engine keeping warm by the firebox for the engineer and fireman.

They got a Mr. Coffee close to when it first came out and that took the place of the old percolator. Made for much better coffee, too.

When I was a kid my Mom drank instant Nescafe. My Grandparents (the percolator ones) would occasionally drink Postum  when they decided that they needed to cut down on their caffeine intake or didn't want to make a full pot.

I finally got Mom drinking real coffee sometime in the 1980s or 1990s. Got her a French Press and a bean grinder and some decent coffee beans.

I love good coffee, and I happen to be, as Mike said "impervious to bad coffee."  I might not enjoy the flavor but I always enjoy the caffeine.  

That said, the best coffee, IMO is cold brew coffee.  It's the smoothest most coffee-flavored coffee I've ever had, without a trace of bitterness.  Making it couldn't be any simpler, you just put coarse-ground coffee in water and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  It does use more coffee per cup, as it were, but not significantly more and I think it's well worth it.

"I happen to be, as Mike said "impervious to bad coffee."'

Oh man, not me. When I worked at Navy Federal Credit Union back in the 1990s their coffee was the second worst I've ever had. The absolute worst came from a diner somewhere in New Jersey. It thing it was roast ground mobsters.

I also can't stomach Dunkin Donuts coffee that you get from the shops itself. It's undrinkable.

The beans that they sell in grocery stores make somewhat better coffee, but it's not my favorite.

Oddly enough, Food Lion's beans made a passable pot of coffee. Not great, but not terrible.

My favorite is still Komodo Dragon from Starbucks. It's an incredible cup of coffee. Haven't had one in quite awhile... since I started my diet. Need to rectify that.

I do like some decent coffee. But my daily drink of choice is Nescafe. Even though it's instant, it's still better to me than a lot of the lesser quality beans. I'll take it any day over Folgers, for example.

My GF got me a bag of the Valhalla Java Odinforce Blend from Deathwishcoffee for Christmas. It was good stuff.

Picked up some Starbucks French Roast whole beans and discovered that stuff actually cleans the coffee stains off the pot. It freaked me out the first time I noticed.

A fair bit of taste issues come from the water, not the coffee. It's amazing how much the taste of even mediocre coffee improves when good water is used.

Until about ten years ago, Lubbock had some of the nastiest tasting water on the planet. It was like drinking a mouth full of dirt and made even the best coffee and tea taste like crap. It was so bad it even altered the taste of things like condensed soup. Our tap water's taste is now much improved but use of RO water, or at the very least carbon-filtered, still has a noticeably positive effect on flavors.

Regarding bitter coffee...

You can really cut down on the bitterness if you toss in a pinch of salt during brewing.

I saw it on an episode of, IIRC, Good Eats and thought it was crap until I tried it. Really did help smooth it out.

I have heard of that but never tried it. Once in a while for kicks I like to make cowboy coffee. Next time I do, I'm gonna try the salt. Is it literally just a pinch?

Black Rifle Coffee is pretty good stuff.   I've only tried the freedom fuel but it was good when percolated.

Obviously it depends on how much coffee you're making, but I've never gone more than 1/4 t. per the 6 cup "pot" I make to take to work most mornings, so that would work out to probably a scant pinch per cup.

Lots of information at this google link, including a bunch on Alton Brown...
