Coffee woes

I really need some help here. Ever since I moved and started using a different coffeemaker, my coffee just stinks. I used to have a standard Braun drip machine (about 14 years old) and it made terrific coffee. Since my move, I have been using an old Mr. Coffee drip machine (conical filter) and the coffee never tastes good. Always a bitter aftertaste. I've messed around with the water/bean ratios, and I get a nice strong cup...just never tasty. I've been using Trader Joes Sumatra beans consistently, so I don't think it is my coffee source.

Could it be the machine? Or have I suddenly lost my ability to brew a decent cup? HELP!!!
