  1. I would suggest a second filter on top of the pile of grounds to prevent the water from drilling through it.

  3. I remember using cheap pot likes this when I was younger. Inevitably, some grounds would always end up in the water reservoir, because on a lot of them it can easily spill over if the water builds up faster than it drains from the grounds. So grounds end up in the tubes, and it appears broken. I used to fix them all the time by taking it apart and cleaning the tubes.

  4. I brew coffee in a cheap machine with two filters, filter-coffee-filter. It prevents the digging effect.

  5. With what all you have done, you're missing the obvious: don't turn it on!
    Treat it as a pour-over. Just use the cone and filter holder, but pour the hot water over the grinds yourself exactly as if it had come as a separate part and didn't have a hot plate or delivery mechanism.

  6. What about just using a clothes pin to hold the gentle pour thingy? It looks like it could just rest on top of the spout arm that way

  7. Can you attach the shower head to the lid? Like the spoon you held in that distributed the water, cut it off the stem and attach to the water out of the machine so it goes through it directly?

  10. my mother double brews her coffee, as in… she pours it back into the water tank of our £15 filter coffee machine and then runs it through the same coffee again. i'm definitely going to get her to try just using pre-boiled water because i'm not even a coffee person but she causes me so much pain with her method lmfao

  11. I use a stove top percolator, so no electrics to go wrong. A gentle percolation for 15 minutes, I can smell when it's brewed to my taste, and I have a superb full flavoured rich dark roast.

  13. The power switch disengaging after power loss is a safety feature. I started writing this comment just as James started talking about the safety implications.

  14. The original Mr. Coffee had a terminal strip covering a hole and when the strip heated up to the correct temperature it would release coffee and then close again. It wasn't super accurate, but theoretically, it would have helped brew temp, and also the opening and closing may have reduced the violence a little.

  15. A great way to do the shower screen is to buy a moderate fine stainless steel colander and cut out and slightly flatten a disk that would sit above the bed without touching water or coffee

  16. I like to use my brewer as a Clever Dripper since its too expensive down here in Brasil, just gotta adjust the coarseness of the grind considering the percolation will take a lil bit longer and you're good to go! 🙂

  17. I wonder if the metal disc would have worked better if you first heated the disc? Maybe it was working as a heat-sink, thus dropping the till it equalized. . . Also my phone heard you say, "Hey Siri brew some coffee". It then found and played a song named Coffee, on Spotify.

  18. You can try a metal filter on top of the coffee to distribute the water? Like a reusable Kcup? Either upright or upside down

  20. How about a screen from a French press over the grounds?

  21. Wonder if it would have made a difference if the disc was wedged slightly above the coffee with loads of holes in it? Like one of those large drencher shower heads?
