  1. Did you find that you had to run water through your Keurig a few times before the coffee stopped having a vinegar-ish taste to it? I NEVER clean my Keurig (poor thing!) but recently I decided it was probably disgusting not to so I basically did the exact same thing you did only I found that my coffee tasted like vinegar. I ended up running water through it like seven times before I got a coffee that tasted normal. I’m wondering if I did something wrong or if maybe it was just my machine?

    1. Hi Carly
      I ran water through it about 6 times because my daughter loves to make me coffee. I did not taste the vinegar at all. I had never cleaned it before either. Hope it goes away for you.
