Coffee from our new coffee maker tastes bad.
Coffee tastes bad?
My wife and I are on our 4th new coffee maker and we cannot get rid of the plastic/chemical taste that the new coffee makers produce. Oddly, we can get a good pot from time to time. We did not have any taste problems with our old coffee maker (it broke). Any suggestions on how to make our new coffee maker "old" or broken in so that we can get back to the good taste we are searching for? Please help!ANSWER:
I'm sorry to say, I don't know the answer. I know that new plastics and other synthetic materials "gas off" for a while, whether you buy a new car, have carpeting installed or buy new furniture.

The only thing I can think of is to buy a coffee maker cleaning product and try that. I'm not sure it would help, because such products are designed to descale. But it might be worth a try.Additional information that might interest you:Are mold and bacteria growing inside my coffee maker?The plastic taste in new coffee makers – Just a bad taste, or toxic too?Is There an Automatic Drip Coffee Maker with no plastic parts?
