Question about Jura Capresso C1000 Espresso & Coffee Maker
I've had my C1000 for about 5 years now, and have been very pleased with
it. About 3 weeks ago, the espresso started tasting very 'off'. Not
just bitter, but other flavors that I can't identify. The off taste
isn't as bad when I use the pre-ground chute, but still there.
I've changed coffees, cleaned the metal screen, and removed the filter in the water tank in case any of that was causing the problem. Nothing helped.
I have some Durgol solution, but I can't figure out how to put the machine into "cleaning required" mode so that I can clean it.
Do you have any suggestions? Should I get a Torx screwdriver and take the unit apart to clean it?
It's fully operational as is; the quality is just poor.
Thanks for any advice you may provide
Have you been using the cleaning tabs regularly? If not, that is the first step. Second, if the time for brewing is too long then it goes bitter quickly. I time shots at about 11 seconds and add hot water after that. If you take taste tests for longer periods you can tell where it goes bad quickly and adjust the timer to stop at the right spot. Maybe timing changed. Have you had the wiring recall? If not, call Capresso and see if they'll still recall for free and they will also offer and exchange or full repair of existing unit.
