My Saeco Viena Plus makes bitter tasting coffee. It was serviced recently. My mom has the same machine and when I use hers, my coffee tastes great. We use the same coffee. Why would mine be bitter?

Hi,
Have you tried using bottled water? I had the same problem and found that Spring water tasted the best.

SOURCE: my coffee tastes bitter and water is not hot

The problem is that there is old coffee oil sediment in the black parts on the machine door. Every time you make coffee, no matter how well you clean the guts of the machine, this coating remains forever. If your really handy, you need to remove these parts very carefully. Take it apart! Don't drop the spring!!!. I soak these in a good cleaning solution and scrub them. Do a good job. I use little tooth brushes and other stuff. It not a difficult task. But go slowly. I photograph before starting so I know how it all goes back.
This is the only way to get the really burnt taste out. Lots of luck.
Also descale too.

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).

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!

No Crema


Hi
If your talking about the tube on the brew unit, you are probably missing the spring or if you have the spring its upside down. Again if this is what you are taking about is the check ball at the bottom of the spring(ball in first, small end of the spring on the ball, O-ring, then the manifold)These things are important for creama.

Saeco Aroma now only produce bitter coffee...


Hi,
besides a good coffee machine, 2 things are critical when you want a good cup of coffee; the coffee itself and the water. When in France, i tasted some of the best coffee I have ever had, but they always told me that the quality and purity of the water made for 50% of that great taste. Has your municipality changed anything about the water treatment recently? Do you drink that same water and find it tastes funny? Perhaps bottled water is a solution in your case. Hoping this helps.

Hi,

Try to descale your machine, if there are calcium in the boiler then the coffee will have wrong temperature and tast bad.
