I get the same amount of water through the espresso side whether I choose 1 cup or 2 cups. So if I use the one cup espresso holder & that much espresso it is watered down.

In a properly working machine you should get about 50 ml (1.5 ounces) for the single and about 100 ml for the double. The amount is also programmable and just about the only way to get the same amount is to program both to deliver the same amount. The unit has a flow meter to accurately measure the amount of water going to the espresso. Try the program function to reset the amount for single and double.

I get lots of watered down coffee. It brews 3/4 cup but it is so watered down. We have descaled etc. I want a thick expresso like taste. This is on a large cup setting Help?>


HI
When you run a lot of water through just a little coffee it gets water down. Try making 2 meduim cups instead. When they make espresso its 1 tablespoon to 1 oz of water. Your running 6 oz of water through the same amount of coffee, and its going to be weak. Program you buttons for 2 shots to fill your cup and it will be pretty strong.

Check the needle inside the k-cup holder to ensure it is not clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup holder by pushing up from the bottom (where it dispenses into your coffee cup). Then rinse it out with hot water using your kitchen sink sprayer. The manufacturer also recommends inserting the tip of a small paper clip into the needle to push out any debris if needed. Then replace the k-cup holder by aligning the arrows and snapping it back into place. Next try to brew your regular cup of coffee and see if that fixed the problem. Hope that worked for you...Best of luck!

My machine only brews 1/2 cup of coffee. I have de-scaled twice within the last week and I get a full cup of vinegar/water, but as soon as I put in a K-cup I only get 1/2 cup of coffee out. The first cup...


I had some coffee grounds stuck up in the cone shaped hole that the water comes from at the top. I had to use a very long toothpick but it broke up some of the grounds that happened to get caught up inside. Before doing this, I went through 24 oz of vinager ;) .. the toothpick worked!

My Keurig B60, 1 month old is not brewing enough coffee


Check the needle inside the k-cup holder to ensure it isn't clogged. You can completely remove the k-cup holder and rinse it out using your kitchen sprayer to help loosen any debris stuck inside the needle. The needle is what punctures the k-cup and extracts the coffee from within the cup and can become clogged. Make sure when you replace the k-cup holder, that you align the arrows and snap the top or arrow-side in first. If simply rinsing your k-cup holder and needle don't do the trick, try inserting the end of a small paper clip into the needle to push out any remaining debris. This technique is actually recommended by the manufacturer, so it won't void any warranty or damage the needle. After replacing the k-cup holder back into the machine, try brewing a cup of coffee to see if it did the trick.

As a side-note, if you regularly use any "Hot Cocoa" k-cups, you need to make sure and immediately brew a cup of just hot water (no k-cup) to help clean it out and prevent the needles from clogging. The Hot Cocoa k-cups are notorious for clogging the needles up thus causing the problem you described above.

Hope that helps...best of luck!

First thing to try is a descale. Run the machine normally using it (as if making a cup of both types) a couple of times with a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. Leave the machine off but uncleaned overnight. run a couple of cycles with just water, and if there is still a slight vinegar taste then run a cycle with a teaspoon of baking soda in water, then flush with just water again. If this doesn't solve the problem, try again with 75% vinegar. If still not working, there is either a control board problem (may be solveable), or the valve/solenoid that stops/allows the water is sticking, almost certainly solveable by taking that apart and cleaning/lubricating. Definitely solveable by replacement. Let me know what you get after a descale if no luck. Hope this helps :)
