Cannot get rid of the plastic taste
August 13, 2018
I wanted a single cup brewer so I can have my decaf without making others suffer the ill effects of less caffeine. The positives of this brewer: it's compact and works great, I love the reusable filter baskets so I can use my own ground coffee, makes a great bold cup this way. However............and this is a big however; The plastic taste it gives to the coffee is just intolerable. I have ran a 50/50 solution of vinegar / water solution through it at least 10 times, a baking soda / water solution a handful of times and even a water / vodka solution (yes, sounds weird but found it on line and was desperate to fix this problem) but still no luck. The taste is such a turn off, I drink about a half cup and the rest is wasted. This brewer was a waste of money, I will not continue to use it. It's just pointless.
