We have a small coffee maker at work which makes 10 cups with two small scoops of Folders Original. I add significant non-dairy creamer and sugar to mine to sweeten it up, else it tastes horrible to me. It's unhealthy I know, but it gives me something to do whilest I work. The first cup tastes sweet, but every following cup tastes slightly bitter. It makes no difference how much sugar or cream I add. I drink two cups about a half hour apart. It doesn't matter if my first cup is at 8:30am or 10:00am, the first is always good. We use town water to make the coffee. The water is not horrible, but it's not spring water either. Anyone?
