Bitterness is a dominant quality in the overall taste of coffee. You need a certain amount of bitterness to balance out the flavor. There are two types of chemicals that give coffee most of its bitter taste - both are antioxidants.

How can I avoid bitter coffee?


If the water that comes into contact with the coffee grounds is too hot, you will extract bitter elements from the coffee. The water should not be boiling when poured on the coffee grounds. Coffee oils, fats and sediment are the natural parts of the coffee bean that causes bitterness by forming as the brew ages. The longer the coffee sits the stronger it tastes.

Ena9 coffee comes out is bitter


The most common cause of bitter coffee is that the water is too hot. And the most common cause of too hot water is too much pressure in the boiler. So, the first thing to look at is the pressurestat of the machine, it should be accessable and adjustable. 1.5 bar is often the maximum pressure for good coffee (don't confuse it with the 11 bar pressure in the grouphead when brewing).

Bitter taste


You will likely find the bitterness is a function of your coffee bean choice or the 'roast' component of that coffee. Darker roasts tend to taste bitter.

Over time, my coffee has become acrid and bitter. I use fresh ground coffee and clean my pot regularly...what else should I do?


There may be some buildup in the machine other than in the pot itself. To test this, try running the brew cycle with no beans. Taste the hot water. If it's acrid and bitter, your problem lies in buildup (such as the basket). Otherwise, if the hot water just tastes like hot water, then the temperature of the water has probably become too high (that will make coffee tastes more bitter). If this is the problem, there's probably no fix (just make sure you fill the reservoir with cold, not hot, water).

Why do some people put eggshells in their coffee?


Nowadays, this practice has become outdated. People used to use eggshells to help remove a certain amount of bitterness from their coffee. While coffee is quite bitter, eggshells are quite alkaline; therefore the combination of the two was said to produce a less bitter tasting cup of coffee.

Making very bitter espresso. I already decalcified it and ran empty tanks through, without success.


Hi. The bitterness you have got is most likely to be dirty group head and shower. Remove the shower and clean with a steel wool. The group handle and filter basket will also have to be cleaned. Sounds like your using a dark oily blend. You cant use different blends unless you clean the group head every time. Same with the grinder. You can not use different blends for grinding. The different blends just cross contaminate, which can make your coffee bitter. Incorrect grind or wrong water tempreture can also make bitter coffee. Running descale does nothing for the coffee taste. Descale only cleans the lime/calcium in the boiler. Coffee does not pass through the boiler. Give your group head and handle a clean, and you should be right. Hope this helps. Dazza

Ran descale program and coffee still tastes funny (bitter)


If you are using a Claris filter, please remove this from the watertank. The descaling agent will clog the filter and make the water taste bad. After descaling, also be sure to rinse the watertank so there`s no resedue of the solvent left in the tank.

However, bitter taste on the coffe usually is related to the coffee side; Try to run a cleaning program. And check grinder settings. If the powder is to fine, it will increase the contact time, and that will make the coffee bitter. My advise is to clean the machine and experiment a little with the grinder settings.

Good luck!
