Hi, I just purchased a brand new Bunn Commercial Brewer and I can't get my coffee to taste right.  I know I'm doing something wrong.  How much coffee should I be using to brew a 64 ounce pot?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

Welcome to Coffeegeek, IAGary!.

Lets start with a few details. What kind of grinder are your using? (or are you using pre-ground beans).
By chance, do you use a scale to weigh the amount of beans?

64oz? are those all for you or for an office/ restaurant?

Hi, Thanks for the welcome and your reply.  :)
I'm using a Bunn LPG Grinder.  Yes, I do have a scale that I weigh the coffee grounds.  The 64 oz is for my wife & I, but I also fill the airpot and take it into work with me.

Hi Netphilosopher,

Thanks so much for your response, sounds like you are very smart when it comes to coffee and way over my head.  LoL!  Anyway, I did 3 1/2 ounces of coffee and it's tasting pretty good.  However, my grounds are creeping up on the sides of the filter a ways, but not going over the top.  According to what you're saying, this should not be happening.  What do I need to do to correct this?  Thanks!

So, I will try moving the grind a little coarser and see if that stops the grinds creeping up the sides.  :)  Thank you very much for your help!

Since no one asked yet, are you using freshly roasted coffee?

You should use coffee that was roasted 2 weeks ago or less, but with drip you can probably go a little older than that.
After that, the coffee is stale.  You should also grind right before brewing.

The beans you buy should have a roasted on date, and not an expiration date.

I used less coffee per cup before I found this place, and learned about using fresh coffee.

One warning about fresh coffee, it will bloom more, and may make your creeping problem worse.
