    The coffee from the tassimo used to taste fine but now there is an acrid taste to it. I have changed the filter, ran the cleaning disc and even changed the type of water.

    Hi everybody! I have the same problem. Mine tastes like it's acrid or extremely burnt! It didn't do that for the first two months I used it. Since that started, I have descaled and ran the cleaning disc. That hasn't helped. I have not changed the filter yet and I do use water from my faucet. I will try changing the filter and using bottled water. If it works, I'll let you know!

    I have the same problem. I have two machines one at home and one in the office. The coffee tastes acrid and burnt in the office machine. I also noticed that the temperature of the coffee in the office machine was much hotter compared to the other machine.

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

I had a stick of butter laying on top of my bunn coffee pot and some butter leaked through the vents. the coffee tasted terrible so i cleaned it with vinegar and ran about 10 pots of clear water through...

Believe it or not I had a customer once that left 6 pounds of butter on top of one of our brewers. They had it cleaned up on the outside so it took me a while to figure out what had happened but I could taste the rancid oils.
We ran about 20 pots of just water through it... make sure you let it heat back up before each one. I think the only thing vinegar might help with would be lime/calcium build up so I wouldn't think it helps this particular situation.
Good luck!

Lost instruction manual. How do I clean coffee maker to get rid of strong acid taste coffee? MoldelB60 single cup coffee maker

Most coffee pots are cleaned by running 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water. Just put in the reservoir and run a cycle. Once completed, run again with 1/2 pot of water only and it will clean it. If you use your pot daily, this should be done once every few months. If you have foul tasting coffee, you should use bottled water to rectify that. Plain tap water has minerals that dilute the taste of the coffee and over time build a residue in your pot.

Mr Coffee Maker FTX25 - coffee tastes bad

Try running a 1/3 white vinigar -2/3 water mix into the brewer, let it brew, then run several pots of clear water through it. This should clean up any bad taste.

Coffee tastes like plastic!

We have had our DCC-1200 for 3 months. The plastic taste occurs about every 3rd pot, and it does NOT get better. We've wasted over a pound of coffee. Cuisinart says we are the only people in the world with the problem. Well, I guess not...

Coffee pot

durabrand has no contacts outside china this is a unit made for and imported for walmart only walmart is the only contact ...... your problem is not anything you or walmart can do anything about the problem is the cheap plastic that is used , when it gets hot some people can taste and smell it and others cant . .. its getting more common in everthing that heats water .. personaly i would not drink anything from an appliance that puts a plastic taste in my water ..... if you move up in price the problem is reduced , better plastics are used , but your not going to get one for 10.00 ! "you get what you pay for " more now than ever .... good luck Please if this answer helped , please rate this 3 or 4 stars . and keep me in the paid answer department . A 1 or 2 may knock me down into the unpaid ranks. Thanks Cactus Bob

Plastic Smell & Taste

Just because its made of plastic doesn't mean it should taste like plastic! The engineers made a mistake in design! Get your money back and don't risk taking in carcinogens!
