Install a inline water filter that they can change from time to time
there are several types of filters that can do different things some for odor or for minerals some for iron removal
if they have iron in the water that would be the first one to try

Metalic taste in cold water and ice cubes from refrigerator

I had a similar problem and I was able to get rid of it by replacing the copper lines that go to the refrigerator with plastic ones. It didn't make any sense to me since the pipes are all copper, but the taste is gone and hasn't come back.

New kettle leaves a metalic tast to water after boiling.

Try different water. If you use tap water normally, buy a jug of water at the store. The pH may be wrong (particularly if it is too low) and leeching metal from the kettle. Good luck.

The water and ice both have a strong metal/mineral taste to them

Remove filter and use dispenser a lot. Chlorine in water may help clean out system that filter is now removing. Not much else you can do other than replace all the water lines and tank. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.

Coffee tastes like metal

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert
