So nothing is more disappointing than taking a sip and finding your coffee is stale. Fortunately, there might be a super simple solution to your coffee woes.

First, the obvious: Fresh beans are a must. Anything else and your coffee won't have that rich taste you crave. But there's another very important factor for a tasty cup: cold water. Using warm water will leave your brew tasting super stale. Why?
