Coffee not hot enough

I have set the temp in all cup sizes to the hottest and I am still not happy with the temp of my coffee. My unit is a new refurb unit. The coffee is not cold however it is not supper hot like I can get at my local Starbucks. What would be the desired temp of coffee? Can it be adjusted at a service dept for a higher temp?

    I bought my Saeco talea ring plus new and have the same problem.

    I boil water in the cups before using it - to heat the cup.

    I always froth first to be sure the milk is warm.



    This is very annoying for such an expensive machine.

    I also tried using the bypass doser first the water hotter.

    Nothing works well enough. My husbands $30 drip is much hotter.

Hi elite 288! have you tried pre-heating your coffee cups? i fill w/hot water, then set them on cup warmer until i brew coffee (dump out water & slide cup under spout at last moment) and i do my frothing of milk before brewing espresso. also, have you allowed adequate time for machine to warm up/run just water through machine: after it indicates it's ready to go, hit the brew button & allow about a 1/2 cup or cup of water to run thru, warming up the brewhead. when ready button again lights up, brew your espresso. if this doesn't get it hot enough for you, try descaling your machine (you can look online or in manual for how to do this). since you have a refurb unit & heating element may not have been replaced, it could have some build up on it causing it to heat up all the water less efficiently. if this doesn't work, you may need to have the place you purchased it from diagnose and repair. good luck!

I have a Solis Palazzo machine. My question is:


HI When was the last time you descaled? This can have a temp lowering effect if you don't descale on a regular basis. Program you water hardness so its set on 4. This will tell you when you have to descale. Descals is not the same as cleaning. Its a special acid that disolves the deposits inside the boiler.

Weak coffee is the result of brew


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.

Since it is "brand new out of the box" check for plastic burs (pieces of plastic improperly hanging around
openings along flow of water) throughout unit, and use more coffee than recommended for your taste of
what a good cup of coffee should taste like, since that varies from individual to individual. If you are using
packets, try using TWO. Experiment, Experiment...........

My keurig coffee maker is not hot enough


I had the same problem, then discovered that I was putting the K-cup in wrong. I was just placing it in the holder. You have to actually push it down until it clicks in place. Also make sure the 3 buttons are flashing, not just glowing, before you fill your cup. After you are done look at the bottom of the k-cup. If you only have one hole you did something wrong. It should have two holes.

Cuisinart DCC 1150: coffee is not hot enough


Using the 1-4 cup setting will help, but that model does not have an actual heating element in the plate - definitely not the right model for someone who likes very hot coffee.

The Magic Comfort Plus machine has a selection for the temp through the menu for the three sizes of coffees buttons. Using the menu button, scroll through until you come to temp section, then select the coffee size button and and change the temp, example-- Select maximum. Press the menu button to set it.

If that does not help, when a machine gets full of calcium (needs descaling) that also will lower the temp. You might have to descale it three-four times.

And remember, when you descale, run the solution through the steam/hot water wand and also the espresso/coffee dispensing nozzle. Only doing it through the steam wand (like the manual says) will only do 1/2 of the machines water sections!!! I usually run 1 cup of solution through the steam wand and 3-4 cups through the espresso dispenser.
