    Does anyone else have a problem with their coffee getting scummy the longer it sits? Do you have a remedy for this or does it have to do with the water or something. Need suggestions. Thanks!

    For years I have used a thermal coffee carafe. As soon as the coffee is done, I pour it in the carafe. It does cool eventually, but a zap in the microwave can cure that issue. I depise coffee that sits in the pot and keeps reheating and getting bitter.

    I would think it was your water. Have you tried making it with bottled water?

    Check your coffee maker in the area where the water comes out.If this is not cleaned on a regular basis there could be a build up of "oils" released while your coffee is brewing.When you brew a new pot,the steam from it will cause those oils to be released into the new pot and create the scummy effect you're noticing.
