This new unit emits a burning plastic smell. I called customer service. They seemed like it was normal to sell you a product that gives you a headache for the first three weeks. They claimed it was epoxy that is used on the reservoir tank. The woman told me to keep a window open??? I still have 36" of snow on the ground. Really Bunn?
First, this is designed to make a whole 60-ounce pot. If you just want to make a cup at a time, look elsewhere.
Second, use Bunn filters. They're tall, so they avoid grounds overflowing the edges of the filter.
Third, this thing brews a whole pot in just 3 minutes, which means a fast water flow through the grounds. Ten heaping tablespoons of medium-ground coffee (in a Bunn filter) at the most, please! Fine grinds, too much coffee or a short filter will get you a mess.
Fourth, you'll have to clean the coffee maker every 6 months or so to remove the hard water deposits that can block water flow. Bunn includes the necessary cleaning tools. If you fail to clean, you'll eventually get thin, bitter coffee, and you'll notice the used grounds are only wet in the middle. That's on you.
Fifth, these only seem to last about 5 years before the heater or thermostat or something gives out. All in all, I'm happy with that lifespan.
Long story short, I won't buy anything else for making coffee. The thermal carafe keeps coffee nicely hot for many hours after brewing, and overall I can't really think of anything I can honestly say I don't like. This thing makes great coffee quickly, and I do love it.
For starters, they replaced a lot of the sturdy metal parts with that flimsy foul smelling plastic that you now find in many products from China. It has a strong chemical odor that fills your kitchen (it is still strong after a few days and gets worse when the water heater is running).
Also, if you like to use fine grounds or make strong coffee, you're going to run into problems with overflowing. This is because the spray head is way too strong. First time I ran it, I had coffee grounds and water all over my kitchen. To solve the problem, you have to actually order another part from Bunn that restricts the flow of water (you can get around this by wetting the filter prior to brewing but it doesn't always work).
Gave it 2 stars because it stills makes a decent pot of coffee when it works.
The key advantage of the design of this unit and my decommissioned model is its inherent simplicity and reliability. No clocks and no auto-brew to be found here - just fast brewing thanks to an always-ready supply of hot water at the perfect temperature. When brewing, thanks to differences in fluid densities between the hot water stored in the tank and freshly supplied cold water, the hot water is forced through a high output, wide-area spray head that wets the grounds evenly. Using Bunn brand filters in this unit is nearly mandatory - the slightly taller size to compensate for higher fluid levels in the basket, flow performance, and permeability to coffee oils makes these an obvious choice for this coffee maker. I've never used a "permanent" filter (e.g. one that can be washed out and reused), so it's possible that may also be a viable filtration method. Ten cups takes only a few minutes to brew start to finish. Great coffee fast is always a good thing.
Q: Don't you think that thing is kind of ugly?
A: Yes, I do, and I couldn't care less. It makes great coffee and works forever. If you're trying to make a fashion statement with your coffee maker, it's time for professional help. If you want a simple and reliable coffee maker that makes great coffee quickly, you're where you need to be.
Q: WAAAAH! My Bunn overflowed all over my kitchen floor! What's wrong with this thing?
A: Stop adding coffee to the filter with a garden shovel. Seriously, cut it down Mr./Mrs. McJitters - the Bunn has you covered by saturating the grinds and extracting every bit of the coffee flavor and punch with less coffee. Follow the ratios in the user manual and the unit won't overflow. Don't eyeball it until you've measured a proper quantity and can see for yourself what the correct level in the filter should be. Also, grind should be appropriate for a drip machine (no fine grinds like espresso, Turkish, ect). Regular retail ground coffee is all OK, but if you grind your own or specify the grind, make sure it's not too fine.
Q: WAAAAH! My Bunn brews coffee with grinds in it! What's the deal?
A: What did I already tell you about the filters? YOU HAVE TO USE THE BUNN FILTERS! The taller filters keep the grinds from slipping over the shorter walls of other filters. Take heed - some things are not "all the same". Using other filters is a poor decision.
Q: Why is the Bunn BT Velocity Brew so expensive compared to <insert idiotically cheap P.O.S. coffee maker here>?
A: The machine's simplicity and reliability in conjunction with its stellar performance in doing its only job of making great coffee makes the extra price worthwhile. Truly though, as an American company, Bunn has higher overhead than license manufacturers in Asia. This higher overhead gives you someone to call if you have a problem. I've been impressed with Bunn's service so far getting a free retrofit kit to repair a minor leak in the top tank on my previous model. All interactions were friendly and efficient. I'd think it necessary to speak Chinese to receive much help from most home coffee machine manufacturers.
In closing, I highly recommend this product to anyone in nearly any situation. If you have water and electricity, this is the best home maker you can buy for brewing standard drip coffee. It may not be the sleekest or prettiest, but it is definitely the most functional.
