How to Fix It

Ultimo advises that using bottled water is your best bet for a clean-tasting cup of coffee. Starbucks advises to always use clean, fresh water that is filtered or free of impurities (although Ultimo says that a Brita filter will still leave behind a flavor), and to avoid soft water or well water. Starbucks says that water heated to just off the boil (195 degrees to 205 degrees Fahrenheit) does the best job of extracting the coffee’s full range of flavors; water that is too cool will mute the flavor and dull the coffee’s aroma.
