Question about DeLonghi EAM3500 Espresso Machine/Coffee Maker
My coffee tastes bitter and water is not hot enopugh
The problem is that there is old coffee oil sediment in the black parts on the machine door. Every time you make coffee, no matter how well you clean the guts of the machine, this coating remains forever. If your really handy, you need to remove these parts very carefully. Take it apart! Don't drop the spring!!!. I soak these in a good cleaning solution and scrub them. Do a good job. I use little tooth brushes and other stuff. It not a difficult task. But go slowly. I photograph before starting so I know how it all goes back.
This is the only way to get the really burnt taste out. Lots of luck.
Also descale too.
