The fact that coffee can have a bitter taste to some is a reality that requires an obvious solution: take out the bitter. Naturally, there are a lot of solutions that seem to be out there. For one, adding a spoonful of sugar (at least) seems to do the trick for many; sweeteners of all types always seem to be nearby a pot of coffee. Then, of course, there is the solution that goes straight to the source: let the coffee maker take out the bitterness.

The Bitterness Eliminating Coffee Maker ($199.95) offers the opportunity to make bitterness-free coffee at home without the need for sweeteners. This two-chamber coffee maker consists of a water reservoir that holds water until it reaches a desired temperature. Then, the evenly heated hot water is sent to be distributed over the grounds, a process that is designed to extract more flavor out of the grounds and reduce the bitter taste.

With an endless amount of methods to coax a cup of coffee out of the humble coffee bean, there are naturally equally uncountable ways to enjoy it. Here, a take on the traditional drip coffee maker offers users the chance to explore another method. Indeed, several bitterness-reducing coffee makers have come to market -- Bodum and Cloer offer models with similar attributes -- which is sweet news for any fan of coffee, no matter how many sugars they take.
