When was the last routine clean your performed? Coffee machines have intricate filter systems that will, over time, clog, with residues.
 
Start by clearing the spout. I'd advise a needle instead of the paper clip because it has a finer and sharper tip and the steel is a lot more sturdy to perform this kind of operations. Be very careful to not force anything. A clog will easily dislodge with no need for force.
 
Next to ado a full system clean. AddFill the tank with a cupmix of clean water and vinegar to a full tank of water adand run the system with nowithout coffee, to clear out possible incrustationincrustations it may have on the tubing. If this is not enough or you really want to be thorough with your cleaning, after running a full reservoir of vinegar and water, pour about half afill the tank ofup to half with hydrogen peroxide in it and let the machine run.

It'''It will stink!stink!'''
It'''It will stink!stink!'''
 
After this, run the machine again with a little water and vinegar to flush out any residues and after that run a couple of cycles with just water. You may want to use coffee one or two times to make a final purge before brewing a cup for drinking.
 
Good luck!

It will stink!
