You may want to try brewing your coffee with bottled water, or water that has been purified using either a filter jug or filter tap. The taste of your coffee will improve remarkably.

If you can put up with the inconvenience of grinding coffee beans before each brew, you will notice a big difference in the taste of your cuppa.
