Detailed Commentary

i bought the melitta 10-cup brewer because i heard so much about auto drip machines not brewing at the right water temperature. the technivorm is the only auto drip approved by scaa as meeting the proper parameters for an auto drip. but as i am keen on low budgeting for the enjoyment of my coffee i decided that manual brewing was the way to go. i would have control over the water temperature that way at a  low price. the melitta drip/thermos is $24 and is worth every penny. there is a dramatic difference in coffee brewed at the proper temperature versus the auto drip machine  i was using. the coffee comes out tasting "smoother", more refined. more of the coffee bean flavor is extracted. what i do is moisten the grounds first to let the grounds settle in the paper filter. then i pour the water, 20 seconds off the boil seems to work out and, i put a pot cover on the drip cone so the water doesn‘t cool any further. the thermos the drip cone comes with is very good at keeping the temperature of the coffee hot. i‘d say the taste of the coffee suffers little after even 45 minutes. i was tempted to try a vac pot or a french press but drip brewing seems like the best compromise and there is  no hassle in clean up.
