I picked up the Melitta Ready Set Joe Brewer because I was wasting too much coffee on a daily basis. I placed the brewing device over my coffee cup and inserted a filter. I proceeded to dump a couple scoops of coffee grounds into the filter. I then slowly poured hot water into the filter and let the coffee slowly drip. I repeatedly poured water into the filter for about 5 minutes until I had a cup of coffee. The finished product resulted in a decent cup of coffee. It tasted okay, but it was missing that strong aroma and richness that gets me ready for the day. I decided to change my pouring method and tweaked my heating temperature. I heated up the water to 190 degrees and poured a couple ounces of water every minute. This time around my coffee was perfect. My coffee was extremely rich and vibrant. I will definitely continue to use the Ready Set Joe if time permits. Timing and precision is the only thing that holds me back from using this device on a consistent basis.
