My two last brews, both 0.6L were testing the variables..all brews using automatic setting and (yes I know) leaving the grind in the machine overnight
Sumatra FTO Gayo Tunas Indah 2012, roasted to FC, now day 6...using 36grams - First brew this morning 198, 1:20 pre-soak, 20 (setting) on the Baratza Encore......I found it had aroma but the body was a little weak - Second brew, this evening 198, 1:20 pre-soak, 4 (setting) on the Baratza Encore.....aroma was there and a little stronger
Never brewing this bean before it was a good sample to play with. I will, tomorrow morning, do the same grind setting of 4 as quite frankly I think the grind is set courser on this grinder to start with....and increase the temperature to 204F hoping saturation is better bringing out the boldness.
What a great experience so far and yes the filters (8-12) from Costco are perfect and a bargain at about 3.00 for 700 (I'm all set with two packages for awhile haha).

I bought these in the USA Costco Craig... Gustin Kramer 8-12 Cup Coffee Filter 700 ct (item #7712). Need to see what is here for an equivilent at Costco. Looks like generic is not a 'Bunn' term and they may be the only ones that make the 'taller' filter.....? ...

I think that every grocery store in the US (and I assume Canada) sells the Melitta brand 8-12 cup basket filters and a generic store brand of exactly the same thing. There's no need to make a special trip to Costco, unless you are already going for something else. These are the filters that fit one billion Mr. Coffee brewers. If a store sells coffee filters, they will sell these!

I stopped in at my local Walmart Superstore & they only had 2 packages of the Melitta Basket 10 - 12 cup 200 count Basket Coffee Filters for $2.98. Nowhere on the packaging does it say "Mr.Coffee"..? I also stopped in at Costco & what they only have is GK Connaisseur 8 - 12 cup 600 count Basket Coffee Filters Item # 2629 GKFILTERS600 manufactured by Rockline Industries Sheboygan Wisconsin for only $3.29! They have the same base diameter & side height (& overall flattened out diameter) as the Melitta ones.
This is exactly the same filter & packaging as yours Adam, excepting your $3.30 or $3.57 USD USA 700 count pack versus the $3.29 Canadian Costco 600 count packaging.
