    Default Calling all Keurig owners!

    So decided to get the filthy Keurig machine and put my beloved tassimo to rest. Thing looks pretty, like that I can select from 5 cup sizes, truly hot water, large reservoir.

    But I found a problem.

    I am getting a strong metallic / plastic taste in anything I brew now. I have run through a ton of vinegar and water and it has gotten a bit better, but the taste is still there.

    Anyone have some tips to help get rid of the taste?

    Are you using filtered water? I just got one also and ran it through with hot water only one time and it tasted fine for the coffees I made after that. Maybe you should exchange it.

    Yes first time I ran the hot water clean out thing in the instructions. Always use filtered water. Never had a problem

    Are you using the re-usable filter cartridge? Taste could be coming from that.

    Mine resolved itself, lasted about a week and I was ready to write it off as terrible.

    Thinking of ditching the Tassimo for this too. Being able to use your own coffee is a big plus with these things.

    100% of the reason I switched to Keurig. I love my Tassimo, great and easy machine, but the ability to use my own coffee won me over.

    Try "Green Mountain" blends, the Nantucket and Magic Dark are pretty good. I also like the Starbucks "House" blend.
    It's not the coffee of the cup, as it happens with any blend i use, even with teas. Having said that, it was not that bad this morning, and was less noticeable. I was actually able to drink this last cup.

    Does anyone know where we can buy the individual cups so I can try different ones without buying a whole box? I was told this was an option, but haven't seen them around.

    i cant remember the name of the place (it might be coffee connection, but i could be wrong), but there is a store in the NE where you just buy a box, it holds 2 dozen cups, then you walk around the store and put whatever flavours you want in it.

    It's not the size that matters, it's the taste it leaves in your mouth.

    I believe you want to go to the Coffee Connection. If I remember correctly my girlfriend bought individual k cups there.

    Probably best to give them a call to confirm though.

    I actually switched from Keurig 60 to Tassimo because of this plastic type taste. I thought maybe it was the brand of coffee I was using, but I did try several different coffees, tea's and hot chocolates and still couldnt get rid of that taste. After a year I finally switched and couldn't be happier.

    My 2 cents.

    Did you try a different machine

    I got my two ekobrews from amazon so I will give those a try this weekend and see how they work.

    Had the same plasticy taste and ran 2 or 3 reservoirs of hot water and the taste was gone ... probably residue or whatever left from the factory I thought.

    Mine is good now.

    You should be able to get them in most places around town (ie. Home outfitters etc), but I didn't find it worked very well, but seems to have good review online
