    Well...no. I brew that same coffee in my regular machine and I love it. It seems like there might be a problem with the filter system, or maybe with build up?

    one other thing...it seems like it is clogged when I brew a shot of expresso, I have to increase the cc's of water very high to get the proper amount of liquid. Has there been any problems like this with Dacor?

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE COFFEE. This has to do with water filter system and most importantly descaling of machine, as over time the metals in side machine and tubing get a mold type build up. Its a chemical reaction from the water and tubing and the coffee and metals. To 100% solve this, descale the machine with water and vinegar mixed. Do this a couple of times and use bottled water to fill water tank if you do not have a good water filter tap system. I have been the espresso business for over 16 years with 4 locations, and it has nothing to do with the coffee. If it was the coffee or poor coffee it would tasted burned or bitter, but NOT tasting like metal.

Please rate my solution as you see helpful, Thanks Mike Espresso Expert

    it was perhaps a ridiculous answer,

    but espresso coffees are very different in flavour to filter coffees,

    a filter coffee through an espresso machine, would pull all sorts of flavors that arent aparent in drip coffee.

    I'm an import,

    North American coffee is very poor in

    hard to find a brand that gives good flavor as espresso.

    Ask the barrista at a coffee shop, (not dunkin donuts, tim hortons, starbucks - a real coffee shop with decent espresso, if he cant make a long machiato ask someone else (VBG)) what coffee they use for the espresso machine, and try a small bag.

We have an Odea Giro in the office. When we got it I remember the coffee tasted amazing. After few months the taste started to decline and after some time we stopped to use it altogether. I wanted to...


you are supposed to go through the "before first use" instructions....which include filling the resevoir with water and brewing only water until its all gone. then start using the machine normally...remembering that the machine takes a few brew cycles to adjust properly to the coffee being used (this assuming this is the giro plus model which has the feature-"aroma something or other...)

also, descaling would help and removing the brew group and rinsing it out...

Strong metal taste, how do I get rid of it. Coffee tastes terrible with very strong metal taste. I have boiled kettle about 8 times, but am unable to get rid of bad taste.


Professional chefs face this problem many times over with their stainless steel wares. Fill the coffee pot with water. Add a tbs of bleach. Let set for 2 hours. See if that helps. If it doesn't, please let me know.

Coffee tastes stale even after cleaning


A few things you can do. Buy less pods at a time and store them in a jar. Shake or aerate the water when you put it in the unit. Don't put it in, the night before.

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...

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!

Suddenly coffee tastes TERRIBLE!!!


First try putting a cycle through with no coffee - see if you have any more luck identifying the taste. If you haven't descaled recently, that could be the cause - scale can hold other materials which can be tasted - run a cycle with 50% white vinegar, then rinse through a couple of times and see what you get - if you need to get rid of any vinegar taste, just run a cycle with a couple of teaspoons of bicarbonate of soda through. The water could still be to blame - even purified, there are certain things that can change that most purifying methods will not remove, such as higher salt levels during summer months etc. Make a cup of coffee without the machine at all, and see if you get the same aftertaste. The machine may not be to blame. Hope this helps, please ask again if you need more info :)
