We all love enjoying a perfect cup of coffee first thing in the morning, which is why it can be really disappointing if that coffee doesn’t taste good. In case your favorite beverage tastes funny and bitter all of a sudden, here are a few things to look out for.

Dirty Equipment

Even if you spend a ton of money on high-quality coffee beans, your coffee won’t be delicious unless your coffee machine is clean. A dirty coffee machine can make coffee taste bitter so make sure to clean it on a regular basis.

Low-Quality Coffee

The most important thing when it comes to making a perfect cup of coffee is quality coffee beans. Not all beans are equal, so if your coffee tastes bad or too sour then it may be due to low-quality coffee beans.

Stale Coffee Beans

Yes, coffee beans can go stale after two or three weeks and, even though using them is perfectly safe, you’ll probably end with a bland cup of coffee. That’s why it’s best to always use fresh coffee grounds.


The quality of your water can also affect the taste of your coffee, so if your coffee tastes funny, try switching from tap to filtered water.
