If you have an Aeropress,  I would try that.  At the 180F - it may be
better since the brew time can take only 20 seconds.  I use the Clever at
home and the Aeropress at work.

You didn't say if you have access to a microwave, but I have taken the
water out of the Bunn and microwaved it prior to brewing, that has helped a

Good luck,

Bonnie P.
