Good Coffee Using the Gravity Method tip 1
As with all brewing methods, it is absolutely vital that the water used for brewing should be as fresh as possible and it should be heated up to the optimal brewing temperature to get good extraction. 98% of coffee consists of water.
Therefore, the water used for brewing should be fresh. Using filtered water is recommended, especially if you’re living in an area that has water with a high mineral content.
Furthermore, to get good extraction, the water should be heated up to a temperature of 195° to 205°F, which is just below the boiling point.

Paper filters tend to absorb some of the coffee oils that are extracted, and react chemically with the hot water; thus they do not yield the maximum flavor possible and can even leave a papery taste in the coffee.
Gold tone filters, on the other hand, do not react chemically with the hot water and do not absorb the coffee oils that are extracted during the brewing process.
Getting the right grind size and consistency is also vital to getting a good brew. The wrong grind size can either lead to over-extraction or under-extraction.
When the coffee grounds are too fine, the hot water stays in contact with the coffee grounds for an extended period of time before it seeps through the filter; thus the result is over-extraction, which leads to bitter tasting coffee.
When the coffee grounds are too coarse, the hot water reaches the filter in a very short amount of time and isn’t able to stay in contact with the coffee grounds before it gets fully extracted; thus the result is under-extraction, which leads to weak tasting coffee.

Finally, the coffee carafe also plays a part in getting a good brew. There are basically two kinds of carafes: the glass carafe and the stainless steel insulated carafe.
Most coffee makers that come with glass carafes have built-in warming plates, which heat up the carafe as it sits on top of it. This is a way of ensuring that the coffee inside the glass carafe stays at the optimal serving temperature.
However, the danger with warming plates is that when the glass carafe sits on top of it for an extended period of time, the coffee gets overcooked, which leaves a burnt taste in the coffee.
On the other hand, a stainless steel insulated carafe or thermal carafe can keep coffee hot for hours without the need for an external heat source, such as a warming plate.
A thermal carafe keeps coffee hot through insulation; therefore, it keeps coffee hot without the risk of having burnt coffee.
If your coffee maker comes with a glass carafe, try to see if there are stainless steel insulated replacement carafes available that are compatible with your coffee maker.
