Clean your coffee maker. You know it need's it!

   If your morning cup of joe isn't tasting as good as usual, the problem could be a dirty coffee pot. Glass or stainless steel carafes should be cleaned after every use to prevent the oily build-up that makes coffee bitter. Wash in warm soapy water or in the dishwasher on the top rack. If pot is stained, fill it with equal parts water and white vinegar, allow it soak for 15-20 minutes, then wash.

 Using filtered water is a huge help in keeping you coffee maker clean. Distilled water is what I use as it "softer" than even bottled of just filtered water.
