Run water through nthe device like you are making coffe but ensure that there is no coffee in it. Try doing this a couple of times it should clean up the chambers where the coffee go through while it is being made. Usually coffe starts to taste bad when residue from coffe that has been made inside the machine starts to mix with new coffee being made. Running ordinary water through the unit ensures that most of this residues are removed.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Bitter taste


You will likely find the bitterness is a function of your coffee bean choice or the 'roast' component of that coffee. Darker roasts tend to taste bitter.

Over time, my coffee has become acrid and bitter. I use fresh ground coffee and clean my pot regularly...what else should I do?


There may be some buildup in the machine other than in the pot itself. To test this, try running the brew cycle with no beans. Taste the hot water. If it's acrid and bitter, your problem lies in buildup (such as the basket). Otherwise, if the hot water just tastes like hot water, then the temperature of the water has probably become too high (that will make coffee tastes more bitter). If this is the problem, there's probably no fix (just make sure you fill the reservoir with cold, not hot, water).

Why is coffee bitter?


Bitterness is a dominant quality in the overall taste of coffee. You need a certain amount of bitterness to balance out the flavor. There are two types of chemicals that give coffee most of its bitter taste - both are antioxidants.

Ran descale program and coffee still tastes funny (bitter)


If you are using a Claris filter, please remove this from the watertank. The descaling agent will clog the filter and make the water taste bad. After descaling, also be sure to rinse the watertank so there`s no resedue of the solvent left in the tank.

However, bitter taste on the coffe usually is related to the coffee side; Try to run a cleaning program. And check grinder settings. If the powder is to fine, it will increase the contact time, and that will make the coffee bitter. My advise is to clean the machine and experiment a little with the grinder settings.

Good luck!

BITTER TASTING COFFEE


I would check the temperature of water. Sounds like it might be too hot. The temp of the water should be between 192 and 197. Colder and its sour, and hotter and its bitter.

My cuisenart 12 cup thermal coffee maker makes bad coffee. I can't return it as it was a fathers day gift. coffee always tastes bitter and burnt. at work we use the same coffee in a 20 dollar sunbeam...


The quality of the water is responsible for the flavor of the coffee. If you have had this coffee maker for a while it is probably coated with lime. Run a couple of cups of vinegar through it followed by a couple of pots of clear water. That will clean up your machine.

Once it is clean, try making a pot with bottled water, or water that you run through a water filtering pitcher.
You will be amazed at the differenct.

Saeco Aroma now only produce bitter coffee...


Hi,
besides a good coffee machine, 2 things are critical when you want a good cup of coffee; the coffee itself and the water. When in France, i tasted some of the best coffee I have ever had, but they always told me that the quality and purity of the water made for 50% of that great taste. Has your municipality changed anything about the water treatment recently? Do you drink that same water and find it tastes funny? Perhaps bottled water is a solution in your case. Hoping this helps.
