When it comes to making coffee, you have two general choices in equipment. You can go for a “gourmet” style single-cup coffee maker, or you can make your coffee by the pot. Most people need more than a single cup of joe in the morning to bring things into focus, so let’s forget the single-cup coffee makers for now. Besides, truth be told, brewing coffee one cup at a time doesn’t make it “gourmet,” it just makes it slow, and overly expensive.
If all you want is a single cup of expensive coffee, just go to Starbucks. Theirs will probably taste better than any do-it-yourself “gourmet” brew you create at home anyway. But when it comes to brewing coffee by the pot, anyone can do it. All you need is the right equipment. The people at Bunn know that, and they’ve been making the equipment you need to make great coffee since the early sixties. They invented commercial coffee filters, and in 1963 they introduced drip coffee makers to the world. Mornings have been easier ever since.
Bunn coffee makers do for homes what their commercial brewers do for businesses. They allow you to make great coffee, every time. There’s no guessing about what temperatures to use or how slow or fast to drip the water through the grounds. If you use the same amount of coffee grounds then you get the same taste, every time. Bunn has a heated reservoir to hold the water at temperature. It’s already perfectly heated when it begins to drip into the grind. They also feed water into the grind at nearly twice the rate that other brands do. This gives you a pot of coffee in about three minutes’ time, and results in less bitterness than other brands’ devices.
While most drip coffee makers do simply that – drip water into the coffee grinds, Bunn sprays water into them. This creates turbulence which actually lifts the grounds up, so that coffee is extracted evenly from the entire grind – not just from the path where water drips in. If this sounds very complicated, don’t be surprised, because it is. It’s actually a patented process. But it’s all done automatically by the machine. There’s nothing you need to be concerned with. All you have to do is choose a grind that you like, and add the same amount to the filter each time. The results will be the same every time, guaranteed.
