My son has a Bodum vacuum pot that he's used for about a year. At
first the coffee tasted good. He said the coffee lately has either
been tasting bitter or has no taste at all. He uses bottled water and
the same coffee he's always used. He changed the filter and that
didn't improve the flavor. He did mention the coffee was taking longer
to brew than normal. He grinds the beans the same amount of time as
before. Any suggestions on what he can do?

I don't have a bodum, but another vacuum pot.

Make sure its clean and it sounds like he needs to adjust his grinder.

Which Bodum vacuum pot does he have.  If it is the Santos, then there
is not much that can go wrong.  If it is the electric version, then it
needs to be checked.  If it is taking longer, then it sounds like
there is a fault  in the heater or timer.
