Topic: rinse out those paper filters with hot water before dumping in the ground? (43 lines)
1) From: Les Gayne
In the following email, Re: +Economies of starting a "real roast" coffee
shop, Gary says:
   That might have been okay, but next the guy pulled a paper filter
from a 
   box, put it in the brew basket, dumped in the ground coffee and
started
   the brewer.  True to my expectations, my "fresh brew" tasted like
nothing 
   so much as wet newspaper.

   but the very least they can do is rinse out those paper filters with
hot 
   water before dumping in the ground coffee.  It would make for a 100% 
   improvement, and maybe the customers would actually taste fresh
coffee. 
   I wonder how many unsuspecting patrons now think that "fresh roast" 
   coffee tastes a little bit like a wet napkin.

I never heard of this but will start to do it. Do you mean to pour hot
water through the paper filter just before putting in the ground coffee?
I use paper filters because I don't really like the "heavy" (I'm not
sure of the right terminology) taste of the grounds that get through the
permanent filters. Will washing paper filters make the coffee taste just
as good as a permanent filter, or can you recommend a good permanent
filter I can try so I get the best value from my roasting efforts.
Thanks,
Les
