1. The brewing method. I normally use a single pass pour over. Mine is a Bunn w/thermal carafe. I like 1/3 cup coffee (5.3 oz. vol. after grind) per 48 oz. water. When using my K-cup & w/fine grind, I completely fill the reusable pod that takes about 1/8 cup (2 oz. vol.). This only makes a 6 oz. cup of coffee. If I'm going to want more than 6 oz., I make a pot instead. In my French press, I put 1/4 cup coarse grind coffee (4 oz. vol.) to 20 oz. of 180F water. This method produces the absolute best flavor, but is more of a hassle to use & clean.
2. The fineness of the grind. A grind too fine for the filter used will allow coffee "fines" to go through your filter (evidenced as sediment in your cup). Fines will give coffee a bitter taste . A coarser grind exposes less bean surface to the water, and requires more coffee than a finer grind. Start with a grind comparable to an off the shelf grind and adjust incrementally to the finest grind that doesn't make it through the type filter you use.
3. Temp of brewing water. My brewer has a non-adjustable 180F water temp which works well for me. My K-cup machine is adjustable from 160-190F. I don't notice a difference in the taste when deviating from the default 180F.
Flavor tip: rinse your filter (in the basket), and stop brew cycle after a few oz. of hot water wets the grounds. Wait 1 minute before you resume the brew cycle. This is so dry grounds do not float on top, transferring more flavor to the water during the brew cycle.
