Coffee Maker smells like.. b.o. (body odor)
OK, here's a weird one. We have a Cuisinart Thermal Carafe Coffeemaker, and I swear, every time we brew coffee, a strage smell eminates. Some call it dusty; others say 'chili peppers,' and I think more body odor. Now really BAD b.o., but just kind of a spicy, dusty smell. I found one other mention of this effect on the 'net:
But so far no better explanation. The good news is, it does not change the taste of the coffee. I can clean it up using vinegar, but really just more curious than anything. Anyone have any theories, or better: answers?
I’m answering this, not because I know the answer, which I don’t – but because maybe someone reading this will know.
Some other useful information to know might be the age of the coffee maker, which part of the coffee maker the smell seems to coming from, and so on.
If anyone has any ideas, please share them through the comment function below.
