Coffee tastes bad. No matter how I make the coffee, it tastes bad!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by r51 Brews excellent coffee.
My sole requirement for this product was to brew about 4 cups of excellent coffee. It does that, and is convenient to use.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jumpstart Not Hot Enough for Boston
I bought this to try a thermal container for a single serving to eliminate ruining flavor when keeping my morning coffee hot on a hot plate. Even though I preheat the mug with hot water, I found the coffee not hot enough to maintain a hot cup of coffee after adding a lot of cream (Boston) to strong coffee.
The On/Off button at the base is not the best location. It has been accidentally activated by other items on the counter. Once I had to reactivate the system by unplugging for a short time and replugging the coffee maker.
I would like to see the thermal mug more insulated to maintain the heat. Coffee does not stay warm very long.
The top of the mug is not spill proof when closed as the coffee spills out the center fill hole which cannot be sealed. Therefore, I have to be careful when traveling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindy As Easy to Use as It Is Lovely to Look At
My last KitchenAid Coffee maker lasted for 15 years so I definitely wanted to stick with the KitchenAid brand. And this personal coffee maker is filling the big shoes of the coffee maker that went before it. Shallow as it is to admit it, I'm very interested in a coffeemaker that looks good sitting on the counter -- and this one truly does. And I'm also very interested in a simple-to-use machine -- which this one is. It's worked flawlessly for 6 months of 3-times-daily use. I love it so much that I bought another one to have as a backup in case KitchenAid discontinues this model (please dont).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Guinnesshouse Brewed a great cup of coffee until......
I have been using this coffee maker for 16 months now. It has been a great coffee maker for the most part. Recently I have noticed lately that my coffee started tasting weird. I have been very meticulous about maintaining and cleaning the maker but I have noticed what seems to be mold inside the removable water reservoir. This reservoir is impossible to clean. There is only a small hole to access the inside. Unfortunately I believe I will need to get a different coffee maker.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Northgirl Must be cleaned for mineral deposits regularly, but otherwise, awesome!
I see lots of reviews on here for a broken machine. I thought mine was broken (it stopped running coffee and the water would just sit in the machine), but decided to run some vinegar though it, as I know the water where I live has lots of calcium in it. I ran a full reservoir of vinegar though, and the calcium just poured out in milky chunks. Afterwards ran a full reservoir of water though, and it works just like new now.
I am happy with this machine, I like that you can make one fresh cup real quick.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Calvsc Good single cup option
I've had this for almost 4 months now. It does a fine job though I've read other reviews stating that the basket swing out gets warped-this hasn't happened to me (yet?) My only complaints are that 1. The bottom drip tray isn't removalbe so I cannot use my Yeti tumbler with it. 2. The coffee ground basket mesh is not quite as fine as I'd hoped. I had to go buy (AND TRIM DOWN each small coffee filter). Yes it is a pain but I'm in love with the Kitchenaid brand! And it just works for me since I refuse to buy the new Keurig that can sense off brand k cups.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JLM It's Ok
I have had this for a few weeks. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing. First, the pros. I like the mug, and honestly, do not thinking it needs to be warmed up to keep the coffee hot as others have said, mine it plenty hot. It holds a pretty good sized cup of coffee, and for me, I'm usually good after one full mug. Doesn't take up a lot of space and it does look nice, and I like that there is no hot plate to bake coffee drippings on and you can take out and clean the try. Now, the cons. The micro filter lets coffee grinds through. I use Maxwell house which is medium grind. The end of the cup always has grinds and I can't stand that, so the screen really only works for course. I do think it's a little over priced. It doesn't seem to be made that well, looks like metal but is all plastic, and the while the water tank looks nice, it's tough to see where the water level is.
