There is a saying that you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your prince. This has been our experience with other coffee makers....from Mr. Coffee 12-Cup Programmable Cone Coffeemaker, Black to Black & Decker to everything in-between. Finally we decided to bite-the-bullet and buy a Bunn. The Bunn BXT-B is not for everyone and if you don't plan on brewing a pot every few days you may shun the fact that the Bunn is always on - it really is an expense.
One thing to recognize - please follow the initial set-up guide (I briefly describe it in the video) if you do NOT follow the initial set-up you will likely ruin your Bunn and void your warranty.
Things that I like
- Brew coffee fast.... like 3-minutes fast - I have time to brew a *few* pots in the morning prior to going to work.
- Great Taste - much better than the traditional drip-through method.
- The thermal carafe is awesome - Bunn states that it will keep the coffee hot for 90 minutes, but I find it drinkable for much longer than that.
- Doesn't steam while brewing - makes it much safer for my cabinets
- Hot water on Demad - just pout the desired amount of water into the top and catch the hot water at the bottom (great for tea..... although it may be a touch warm for hot chocolate).
- Bunn quality - I expect to own this thing for 10 years
Things that you should know PRIOR to purchasing
- Again, this thing is always on... always pulling electricity
- Requires Bunn filters
- You probably will want to buy whole bean coffee such as Batdorf & Bronson Kenya AA, Whole Bean Coffee, 12-Ounce Bags (Pack of 3) and using a burr grinder. I use a cheap one Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill but it works well
- You may want to use filtered water
- Does require an occasional cleaning
- It is higher/taller than a standard coffee maker - save yourself some grief and make sure that you have a minimum of 16" clearance
- The tank remains warm o the touch..always
- I would HIGHLY recommend in spending the extra $$$ and buying the thermal carafe - absolutely worth the extra expense
- Not programmable at all - no clock or fancy electronics on the Bunn BTX-B. It simply brews coffee
Final Verdict - If you make at least a pot a day of coffee this is likely to be an investment that will pay major dividends. Easily the best coffee maker that I have ever used.
