If you and your wife, husband, roommate, or co-worker have two different preferences for how strong you like your coffee, it can be a real pain in the neck taking the time to make two pots at two different strengths every morning. Luckily, you can easily work around that by simply stopping the brew halfway through to pour a cup for whoever likes it a little weaker. Then, you can let the pot finish for a stronger cup, as the coffee will have to sit in the basket a little longer to turn blacker. This can help to save time and effort, not to mention coffee grounds, so that starting your day doesn't have to be a two-hour process.
