At work I frequently brew my own coffee. I use a "coffee cone," which works very easily when you pour boiling water over the grounds - coffee simply drips through the filter.
I am not terribly picky about my coffee. Until recently, I filled a glass measuring cup with tap water (which is chlorinated), microwaved it until it was boiling, and used it. Coffee was OK.
Recently a co-worker brought in one of those electric tea kettles. She fills it with water, hits the switch, and it boils. I used it today for the first time and my coffee was awful. All I could taste was the chlorine! We used the same water. Do these tea kettles make chlorinated water taste worse?
