Hell I couldn't wait to try it so I brewed up 4 cups of coffee using an old can of Folgers that had been open for months. Wasn't expecting much as it smelled stale. Best cup of coffee I have made in years at home, no kidding. I sat there thinking there is no way this tastes good as it was the same coffee can I had when I threw the old Sunbeam piece of shit in the garbage after another crappy tasting pot of coffee.If someone told me that one drip pot could make a way better pot of coffee than another drip pot I would have called them crazy. Let me know what you think in the morning.
