Question about Keurig B70 Coffee Maker

1 Answer

Watery tasting coffee

Help - we are on our second machine in less than a month. First machine was watery coffee, tried about 20 k-cups and ended up exchanging machine. Second one was perfect for about # weeks and here we go again, watery coffee & tea. We use deer park spring water in it only. I am at a loss. Help. We use the machine everyday.

    I have been using a b100 for years, but eight months ago it started taking longer to brew and then the coffee is so weak.  It is pouring a little less than 6oz. and it seems hot enough, but it's really watery!  All sorts of k-cups tried to the same results.
    I tried replacing the air pump (I know someone who worked at Keruig) but that didn't help at all.

    I wish I knew what was wrong... Keurig is no help, they want me to send in the k-cup cradle and they'll give a discount for another (cheaper, made in China) model.  Um... no.
    I will never throw it away; it's a masterpiece.  Made like a brick s*house and made in the USA.  It'll just collect dust until someone posts a solution!


    Please, any thoughts or suggestions?!?

Have you tried cleaning it with the 64 ounces of white vinegar?
Read your booklet if you still have it. Pour the vinegar in run it through until it ask for more water to be added and just let it sit overnight or at least 8 hours. Then flush it out with fresh water at least two or three of your water tanks should do it. Then give it a try again.
Just a suggestion if you haven't tried that yet. Hope it helps.

Coffee tastes bad in old and new coffee makers


Have you tried first just running distilled water through it, then again with spring water and then test with enough coffee for 1 cup to see how the cofee taste then. Also you may want to use distilled or spring water when making that one cup of cofee to test.

Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

Espresso is dark and rich at first; then shifts to water


This is suppsed to happen, every espresso machine out there on the market does this.

All the taste for the coffe comes in the first couple of seconds and after that it gets less and less.
So the problem is not that it gets lighter and lighter, but that you dont get enough taste in the start of the brewing.

And this can be caused by alot of things.
Bad beans?
Not set the grinding to fine?
it will not heat enought and thereby not get enough taste.
etc.
