Good Design

The design of this brewer was just what I was looking for: 8 cups, insulated carafe, reputable brand, full temperature (200 degrees F) brewing, and no "always-on" heating tank. After a frustrating and rather wasteful one-month break-in period, it's operating as I originally hoped. If it weren't for that problem, I'd give it 5 stars.

Good Support

I bought the Bunn Phase Brew HT despite problems reported by others because, apart from the Technivorm, there's nothing else quite like it, and I had read the Bunn support is very solid. This turned out to be true.

Problem with Odor, Initially

The biggest problem was a nasty plastic smell and taste originating from the plastic tank. This was especially noticeable during the heating cycle. Eventually I ran about 20 pots of water through the thing over about three weeks, including two cleanings with vinegar and even a couple with hot bicarbonate of soda solution. At one point I called Bunn support, which was a reassuring experience. They offered to replace the brewer, no problem, but they said the smell would go away in a couple of weeks. I hung on the the brewer I had, and sure enough, in a few weeks it was making great coffee. Whether it was the passage of time that did the trick or the endless flushes with water, etc., I don't know.

Not Wasteful of Energy

I always liked the Bunn brewers for their solid build, but I didn't want to heat water in a reserve tank all the time, so the Phase Brew seems like a good answer.

Correct Water Temperature

The water temperature coming out of the spray emitter is about 204 degrees F, and the coffee in the pot at about 185 degrees (measured with a Fluke thermal probe).

I wish I could kiss the people who made this coffee maker. Where do I start? Maybe with my supposedly nice Cuisinart story. Last Christmas I received a Cuisinart coffee maker with a thermal carafe. The thing was a menace from the start. The lid never closed all the way, the entire thing was plastic except for the carafe, which almost immediately started to seep water between it's walls even though it had never been near a dishwasher or submerged in water. Plus, it always overflowed unless we pressed slow brew. To make it more annoying it screeched out five ear-shattering beeps when it was done brewing that woke us up from downstairs even with our door closed. Who needs an alarm? Not us!

After all this I was left thinking big companies don't care about their end product as long as they sold a bazillion. By the end of this year the crappy thing was more than toast.

Now THIS coffee maker is amazing!! Bunn seems like they want to design and build something of quality. Really? Do companies still do this? First, the coffee maker is tall, nearly as tall as my stand mixer so make sure you have room. The reason is because there's a reservoir on top for water to boil to an exact temperature before spraying down on the coffee. And the coffee filter is made of stainless steal, not plastic! I about jumped for joy when I saw that. They also fixed the too flat pour spouts everyone complained about in previous years. It has a nice dip now so coffee doesn't splash out. Does that mean a company actually takes suggestions? (Sorry I'm feeling a bit cynical after my Cuisinart experience.)

This Bunn is solid, seriously. It's a well-built machine that looks great in my kitchen. And the coffee? Fantastic! There is only one small thing it doesn't have. A built in water filter.

I am satisfied with the purchase of the newest HT Phase Bunn Home Brewer.
CONS: You can't be in a hurry with this maker. Ours takes a full 12 minutes starting with room temperature water. The carafe only holds 8 cups. This maker is very noisy. It boils, hisses and jiggles while brewing. Water drips out of the seams of the top if it is filled to the 8 cup level while it is heating. I tested the coffee temperature immediately after brewing by pouring coffee directly in a ceramic mug. The temperature was 172F. I was a bit surprised that it was not hotter than that if it truly brews around 200F+. I will have to due further testing and watch some control factors more closely. I hope that it registers a bit higher than that.
PROS: The automatic start helps to make up for the time of brewing if you simply can't wait the 12 minutes for the brew cycle to begin. We prefer to grind our coffee just prior to brewing but it is nice to have the option! The thermal carafe prevents over heated, bitter coffee. I tested the coffee temperature directly after brewing and it was 172F. I tested a cup at exactly two hours later and it read 160F. I give the thermal carafe a nice hot pre-rinse and it holds it's heat for a full two hours. I love the stainless steel brew basket. Our brew basket from our last coffee maker was plastic. It blistered causing me to have concerns about plastic leaching into our coffee. No worries about that with the Phase Brew.
