If I were to make a pot of regular old Folgers coffee, and then dump out the grounds and put fresh coffee in the filter, and then pour the coffee I just made into the reservoir and make another pot, and then keep doing that...how strong will the coffee get?
Is there a maximum caffeine saturation? I recall that an average cup of coffee has about 100mg of caffeine. Can I make deadly super-crack coffee? Or will the coffee turn too thick and not filter properly after a few dozen cycles?
