We just bought the Keurig B-60 single shot coffeemaker. Love the design, the ease of brewing. But my wife and I both think the coffee has a very unpleasant undertaste. We switched from tap to bottled water and tried several different kinds of cofee, but didn''t notice any difference We wonder if we may be getting a taste of residue from the plastic resevoir. Or maybe the machine just plan doesn''t make good coffee! Anyone else have this problem with Keurig?

Depends on brand of K-Cup

My wife and I have the same keurig model. Coffee that we pick up in the store have come out decent. The "samples" that were included in the machine did have a bit of an aftertaste, especially the dark roasts. These samples may be old. I still like the machine and in a hurry it makes a good brew.

Do me a favor, if you can get your hands on a cheap manual drip cone, make some coffee with a decent brand and water just of the boil and compare it to the k-cup brew.

My keurig machine is in disuse now and a cone manual drip maker I picked up for a couple bucks is now my maker of choice. :(

I used K-cups for about a year before I got serious. Never really noticed an undertaste. Always got the "extra bold" K-cups.

What brand of coffee are you using for your Keurig? My favorite is Gloria Jeans. I have found that some of the Green Mountains are a little on the weird tasting side but they have one of the biggest selections to choose from. Although I do need to put in a shameless plug for their Golden French Toast k cup because it is unbelievable!!!! I would tell people not to judge the Keurig by the samples, because samples arn't guaranteed to be completely fresh. If you need any help finding a flavor that is a "perfect match" let me know. I am a hook line and sinker Keurig fan and I think it is God's gift to man kind lol It's even idiot proof which means its perfect for me lmao :mrgreen:

Also where are you getting your k cups from? Maybe we can compare place and see which place is best.... =]
