Honestly, I was planning to buy a Technivorm. And go from there with the grind setting and so on. This Bunn coffee maker is cheap and stupid. If I still get the same results from that (Hopefully not!) Then I will run your tests. By the way, I did a test with 74 grams of coffee on setting 14. Got kinda cold before I could drink It...And It wasn't good anyway. As far as setting five, I know that the setting will overflow my brewer unfortunately. researching and reading the brewer manuals states that overflowing problems Is too fine of grind, and 75 grams of coffee is pretty darn high in my basket. I don't mean to make my self sound stupid though, but the coffee maker obviously will probably overflow...I'll take your word on It for now that five will most likely give me a very strong taste. I'm pretty much done with this coffee maker. And I believe the Technivorm will be much better then my Bunn...

It was weak bodied, not any foul flavors or such. Just the same problem...I think this brewer is brewing to quickly or something. The grinds look awfully finer and finer as I go down obviously...And I use medium air roasted coffee from "The Roasterie" I don't get the same stuff every time though. And I have the glass carafe.

I personally think they have great coffee, and they do a lot for Kansas City. The Roasterie has great coffee! I've seen the roasting process first hand during a Barista jam at their roasting plant/Cafe and It was a great experience! Got a strong cup of Ethiopian Yergacheffe Ayinage that they roasted (The roast that we watched) Apparently, the "Air Roasting" makes the coffee taste better and the roasts sure do look better then most drum roasted coffees.



On another note....I wanna but a frieling gold tone cone filter for the Technivorm that I wanna buy. Based of the pictures, what grind is suitable for this type of filter? I believe that finding the right grind for a gold tone is easier since they generally require a coarser grind to prevent sediment.
