I hear where you are all coming from. I received the Starbucks coffee as a gift from a family member who visited the original Starbucks In Seattle. And and I got another lol. Trust me, I buy freshly roasted beans from a very popular coffee company here In Kansas City called "The Roasterie". I went to the factory and got a tour...Only coffee company In town I know that put's roast date's on there coffee and injects the bags with nitrogen! I probably won't buy more coffee from Starbucks to brew at home. But even If I have good coffee like that, what do I need to do If my coffee comes out weak and thin bodied?

If you have that local roaster use them lol. Charbucks beans are going to give you those stale sour burnt flavors mo matter what. Your brew ratio is correct and sounds like your grind is as well. So if you use fresh coffee and still dont like it, either something wrong with the machine (temps etc), grind,  or you could change the brew ratio. I used 17:1 on a trip recent with a Ethiopian Yirg blend, and was surpised at how good it was at 17:1 even on a crappy mr coffee (brought my hario slim grinder). Beans make all the difference.

Do you have a picture of the grind you use? I think I grinded a little bit too fine yesterday. I think that my coffee might be a little strong now that I think about It. Just brewed a pot of the Starbucks (Trying to get rid of It lol) And the taste was flavorless almost, and It was a bit strong. Maybe that's the problem! I've been brewing to strong of coffee! What ratio does Starbucks or any coffee house use? I want coffee house quality coffee. Do they use a 17.4 ratio or something else?
