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 :)

SOURCE: Bad tasting coffee
Hello. Usually bad taste is one of 3 things, water quality, coffee quality is changed, or brew temp is different. Try removing all the water, by tilting the unit over the sink, unplug please, so the end where the funnel would go is draining the water into the sink, go slowly. Once all the water is removed, refill it with fresh water until it comes out the spray head/funnel area again, plug back in, heat and test. Now there could still be residue in the tank, and it may require doing this a couple of times to clear fully. Try another coffee, may have just had a bad can/bag/etc..
Last, take the temp of the water coming out of the funnel, should be about 180 deg. F, if not it could be too cool, and needs a thermostat or element. If you need a service provider, go to www.bunnomatic.com and locate a service near you.
Hope that helps, and thank you.

Hi, What is the problem you have faced exactly with your coffee machine?
If you can't turn it on then check the power cable and your electric outlet and
also check that you have plugged it properly. If the machine get turn on but
you can't brew a coffee then remove
the infuser and thoroughly clean it. Then Repeat the operation using a maximum of 1 measure of ground
coffee. May be the holes in the spouts are clogged. Scrape the holes with a
needle. Make clean the brewer. And also Descale the machine. If it doesn't
solve your problem then you have to repair your brewer.
