If the taste of your coffee is not good from the start, please keep in mind that:
You should at least brew the minimum amount of coffee as indicated on the jug and water container.
The brand of coffee can influence the taste.
You might want to try a different blend of coffee for a different taste.
Use fresh water to brew your coffee.
Keep your coffee machine clean. Regular cleaning of the filter, holder and jug will have a positive influence on your coffee taste.
If the taste of your coffee becomes less after some time of brewing:
The coffee might have stayed on the hot plate too long. Coffee becomes strong and bitter if you leave it on the hot plate for too long, especially if the jug contains only a small quantity of coffee.
