The coffee comes out bitter on my Delonghi Magnifica

I think this is because the water is heating up past 175 degrees. Have a fully automatic Jura Capresso at the office and same beans taste super. Is there a way to get my DeLonghi's water temperature set to 175?

    The coffee comes out bitter on my Delonghi Magnifica
    I think this is because the water is heating up past 175 degrees. Have a fully automatic Jura Capresso at the office and same beans taste super. Is there a way to get my DeLonghi's water temperature set to 175? I keep the inside unit clean and service it with the liquid decalcifier every 300 cups. Additionally, I only use RO UV water in both systems, and the Delonghi still comes out bitter. If I need to regulate the temperature of the water, how (or where) can I get this done?
    Thanks!

Your machine is fully automatic and the manufacturer has left you with only two temperature settings. The logic behind giving two temperature settings is that few like it hot and few like mild. Hence, If you wish to lower down your temperature and your current temperature is high or vice versa can be done.
Temperature control! For that extra hot Cappuccino or Latte move the frothXpress Plus dial from the "-" settings towards the "+" settings to increase the temperature.
In any case if this does not works with your machine Kindly let me know your model number so that I can provide you with accurate solution.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I am out of town and don't have access to the Delonghi until this weekend, but will try it then and let you know.

    Let me know when you have access to the machine. Then we can proceed with the solution.

  • Peter Vessenes Jul 14, 2010

    Will do.

    Thanks!

    Just got back home. Went to the menu to see that someone (housekeeper?) had turned the temp up to Extra Hot. I dialed it down via the menu and all is well. Thanks for your (and everyone's) great help.

Coffee tastes bitter due to dusty got collected in the interior.Clean the filter as well as the interior of the machine. Then check out. First thing to do is clean your coffee maker, people don’t realize that this is necessary. Pick up a coffee maker cleaner or us something like CLR deluded in lots of water.
Next, if the occasional coffee is bitter the trick to fixing it is a pinch of salt. By pinch I mean just a few grains. The sodium reacts with the acids in the coffee and removes the bitter taste.
clean your coffee maker with white vinegar and water. Run it through a few times then run clear water tho a few times.
But still if the coffee taste is similar and no change then yes its the problem of warming plate in the coffee maker.Its getting overheated and coffee is getting overheated from what is not required and the taste changes.The heater unit needs to be checked.If the element is short it needs to be replaced.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    Thanks. I am pretty anal about keeping the machine clean both physically in the internal parts I can reach, and with the regular cleaning liquid the machine requests after about 300 brews. I will try the salt and vinegar steps when I get back from out of town, but am still skeptical, as the Jura Capresso gets the same care and the coffee comes out perfectly. If the heater is malfunction, where should I get it serviced? It was originally purchased at Starbucks. Thanks! This was a super fast response.

  • Peter Vessenes Jul 12, 2010

    One more comment/question. Since this is a fully automatic coffee maker, it does not allow me to run vinegar/water, or just water through the coffee maker without grinding and compressing beans. How do you suggest I run the vinegar solution through the machine? Should I just brew beans with the vinegar?

    yes that is the only option in automatic coffee machines to run vinegar.
    thanks for keeping updated with your query.

If heater not working properly ,but still working the heat transfer poor ,probably need to disassemble and actually manually clean heater unit with wire brush till really clean,otherwise replace heater unit as heaters are usually fully sealed. get on line and search for Delonghi magnifica 3300 (parts diagram , replacement parts,parts). then you will have part no and hopefully someone who can supply parts.As for frother if water not heating to enough to make hot coffee the not heating enough to make steam either so frother does not work,if blocked then need to clean out frother tube.

Ena9 coffee comes out is bitter


The most common cause of bitter coffee is that the water is too hot. And the most common cause of too hot water is too much pressure in the boiler. So, the first thing to look at is the pressurestat of the machine, it should be accessable and adjustable. 1.5 bar is often the maximum pressure for good coffee (don't confuse it with the 11 bar pressure in the grouphead when brewing).

Water not pumping


Typically this is caused by the heating/water unit inside the machine drying out. Not being totally familiar with your machine let me offer this suggestion: if you have a "hot water" function that allows you to run hot water out of the machine use it to allow water to get back into the heating unit. Once water flows through without interruption you should be able to brew coffee again. I know this is the case with Jura machines and the problem you described is identical to what happens with those machines when the internal heated water tank runs dry.
