Question about Coffee Makers & Espresso Machines
I have run gallons of water through my machine. I added a little vanilla to the water to see if that would mask the plastic taste along with brewing several kCups. The finished beverage still has an overpowering taste of plastic. I use this machine at the office and I also have the Platinum at home. It never had a plastic taste and makes a perfect tasting beverage. Help!!!
I run a mixture of vinager and water through the entire brewing process, works everytime.

Testimonial: "I called Keurig to see what their suggestion was.The customer service rep suggested the same solution. I used 2 TB of white distilled vinegar with 48 oz of water and ran it through then followed with clean water. The plastic taste is gone! Makes me think they should suggest this process in the owner's manual."
Try changing your milk - Anchor milk often has a 'yukky' taste

Basing on personal experience (you can find more on Google probably), solutions are:
On percolated (filter) coffee machines:
Check water temp, if water temp is insufficient , most common is scale heating element , faulty element, faulty thermostat.
Check if water is dripping right at the center of the filter, if it is dripping on one side because the orifice is clogged, that can result in weak coffee.
Coffee blend not well distributed on filter basket.
On Espresso machines:
Check water temp, same as filter coffee machines (thermostat element, scale on heating chamber).
Ensure that coffee is filled correctly in the filter cup (fill at level), and well pressed.
Ensure that the coffee mixture that you are using is not too coarse, buy the apposite one for espresso.
Ensure that you are not leaving the machine brewing for a time that is too long, and Italian coffee cup is very small, approximately one regular shot.
On the hob moka pots (espresso, Moka and Bialetti type):
This are the trickiest ones, you need art and practice to get a good espresso with a Moka, but when you learn, the result is better than what you may get with an home electrical espresso maker.
The frame on the hob must be not too strong, and the mixture coarse but well pressed, with water at level tag, or you will get a weak coffee.
On Mokas a good strategy is keeping hob at minimum, and turning up the flame at top when coffee starts coming out.
French and turkish cafetieres:
Ensure that you put enough coffee, water hot enough, and that you left the infusion enough time to get a strong coffee.
Note: insufficient pressure and clogged lines on electric machines never give you a weak coffee, exactly the opposite.
Not pressed mixture always gives weak coffee, but too much pressed mixture may give you coffee with bad taste.

SOURCE: Plastic Smell & Taste
take up smoking
and then you will loose you smell and taste.
every thing is made of plastic and aluminum now.
only a stainless pot does not leach plastic cfc into water when hot.

SOURCE: Coffee tastes like plastic!
Will improve with time. Run lemon juice per every cup of water for the first month or so. What can I say - it's a mostly plastic coffee maker. Also, try using the charcoal water filters.
