You are kind of the hubski coffee expert, any tips for those of us who aren't coffee experts but want to try to brew a better cup in the mornings. There is a lot of stuff out there on the net about how you need the perfect temp, the perfect grind and beans that were roasted the morning and brewed in a $10,000 machine. A lot of that sounds like bunk, so if you you condense your knowledge down to just a few tips for the home brewer what would they be. What can most people taste and whats mostly fluff?
Also is it faster/cheaper to wash the cones than it is to toss the filter? I'd be afraid of clogging up my sink.
