After two months the water that's boiled it still makes tea and coffee taste funny ?


What are you using for water? If you are just using tap water try buying a bottle of distilled water at the grocery store. Tap water - especially if it has Chlorine in it - makes terrible tasting coffee. Plus I'd suggest it's not good for you anyway.

You can also try the manufacturer's cleaning recommendation which typically involved running a water/vinegar mixture through the unit and then a couple of empty pots of plain water.

Last thing to check is to replace the water filter in the coffee maker if the model you have has one. Some higher end models do.

Good luck.

How can I avoid bitter coffee?


If the water that comes into contact with the coffee grounds is too hot, you will extract bitter elements from the coffee. The water should not be boiling when poured on the coffee grounds. Coffee oils, fats and sediment are the natural parts of the coffee bean that causes bitterness by forming as the brew ages. The longer the coffee sits the stronger it tastes.

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.
