Question about Cuisinart DGB-600 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Suddenly coffee tastes TERRIBLE!!!

I have used this coffee maker for almost a year. All of the sudden the coffee has a horrible after taste. I have not changed the water (purified) or the coffee that I use. I clean it regularly and also regularly change the water filter. Thanks.

First try putting a cycle through with no coffee - see if you have any more luck identifying the taste. If you haven't descaled recently, that could be the cause - scale can hold other materials which can be tasted - run a cycle with 50% white vinegar, then rinse through a couple of times and see what you get - if you need to get rid of any vinegar taste, just run a cycle with a couple of teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda through. The water could still be to blame - even purified, there are certain things that can change that most purifying methods will not remove, such as higher salt levels during summer months etc. Make a cup of coffee without the machine at all, and see if you get the same aftertaste. The machine may not be to blame. Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)

    Sorry, posted twice - another thought, could the coffee be being burned - perhaps machine running hotter than before - could be caused by limescale also, insulating the thermostat. a descale should solve that.

Try running vinegar through instead of water. Then after you finish with vinegar, run clean water through, then try with coffee and see how it works.

you are supposed to go through the "before first use" instructions....which include filling the resevoir with water and brewing only water until its all gone. then start using the machine normally...remembering that the machine takes a few brew cycles to adjust properly to the coffee being used (this assuming this is the giro plus model which has the feature-"aroma something or other...)

also, descaling would help and removing the brew group and rinsing it out...

You may have residue internally since it is fully automatic you would not normally not have access to the group... coffee gets funky over time, try descaf or another cleanser... vinegar will work but rinse the heck out of it or the first few pulls will be horrible!

All of a sudden my electric percolator coffee tastes very metallic. i have been using this pot for 20+ years!


Try running white vinegar through it for a cycle to clean it then run plain water. If that doesn't fix it, and nothing else has changed, try buying a gallon of water at the store and making coffee with that. Something may have changed with your water supply. Water quality is one of the most important aspects of coffee making. If none of this helps, have someone else taste it. If you've started a medication recently it could be altering your taste as well. Good luck.

Gaggia syncrony Digital display says we need to decalcify? How do I do that?


Either purchase packets of De-scale or purchase citric acid. Take 1 tbs and mix in water until completely dissolved. Use cold water. Pour into filling chamber. Run through machine. Rinse with purified water until all is clear. NO after taste. Don't use tap water in these machines. Use a purified water. Coffee still tastes good,and no calcium buildup!

Coffee tastes very acidic


Hi kdimof,
I realize you posted this problem over a year ago, but I was curious to see if you were ever able to resolve this problem, or find the exact cause.
I have the same issue you describe. I descaled my Lattissima for the first time using the Nespresso descaling solution. And now, two months later, I cannot remove the chemical smell/taste of the descaling solution. I've run numerous descaling cycles with just water (as per Nespresso's customer service advice), with no success. I was forced to accept a refurbished machine (even though my Lattissima was only 3 months old). The refurbished machine is currently on the way. We'll see if I have the same issue when I descale this one.
Thanks, Redfran
